A long & bumpy road


PSC Golf from Mulligans Lakeside

The headline refers to 2 different trips this week, with the ‘long’ referring to our journey to play Wangjuntr (Valley) course on Tuesday, Dec. 18.  It was decided to play from the Blue tees, no, not the back tees, at 6,550 yards as the Whites were a bit short at only 6,020 yards.  The scores were not good, so we may have to reconsider for next time, search for that sufficient balance between enjoyment for as many as possible, while still an adequate test of skill.

It was Jeff Wylie (6) who led the way with an unspectacular 32 points, followed in by Owen Walkley (10) with 30.  Near pins were spread around today between, Owen, K, Trevor & Jeff.

Thursday was the ‘bumpy’ ride to Century Chonburi, although when all said and done the course is worth the drive.  The Whites were the tees for today and at 6,571 yards on the card it provides a solid test.  The scores were pretty good today, across a range of handicap, so the length of the course did not appear to be an issue, (unlike Tuesday), with over ½ the field scoring 30 or more points.

Clive Hoseason (23) scored 36 points, which may well have been much better as it included 4 “wipes”.  The top 2 spots went to a solitary point better, with Jeff (6) edging Phill Waite (14) on count back of the back 9, 22/20.  Near pins today went to Martin, Graham and Jeff with 2 on the back 9.

Note:  Mulligans Lakeside plays golf generally on Tuesday & Thursday, with ML hosting prompt presentations on both days.  As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including seniors who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.  Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
