All smiles for Max, Kissy and Ebrahim


PSC Golf from The Growling Swan

Wednesday, Dec. 9, Greenwood – Stableford

In a week when His Majesty the King and Lindsay Slender shared birthdays, another fine field of 35 headed to Greenwwood, where we were greeted with a pleasant surprise.  This fine course has followed the lead of Treasure Hill and reduced the rates (green fee, caddy and cart – 1,150 THB).  Well done, Greenwood!

We played A & C nines off the yellow tees, with count-backs required on C.  The greens were true and the many deep fairway bunkers continue to make this course pleasurable, though very challenging.

(L to R) Keith Buchanan, Ebrahim Al-Ansari & Max Bracegirdle.(L to R) Keith Buchanan, Ebrahim Al-Ansari & Max Bracegirdle.

Geri Crilly, Frank Riley and birthday boy Lindsay swooped their way around the course with gay abandon, however It was Max Bracegirdle who was all smiles and turned around his recent bad form.  Ebrahim and Kissy were the only others to break their handicaps.
