Near pins went one each to Monte and Bob, with Jonathan grabbing a brace.
Thursday, March 8, Wangjuntr – Stableford
Thursday was a visit to Wangjuntr, to play the Valley course and the consensus was to play the Blues (Gold is the tips), as White was too short to get an appreciation of the course. We decided on no comp today, just concentrate on what is advertised as the highest rated officially (71.8/124 from Blue) course in Thailand.
The course generally was good, although the greens did not quite measure up to the expected standard of the rest of the course. All agreed that the trip was worthwhile, so we may well go back again in the not so distant future.
