PSC golf from Siam Country Resort
Tuesday, Dec. 24, Khao Kheow – Stableford
Tuesday was a visit to Khao Kheow, partly as a reconnaissance for the upcoming PSC Club C/ships, but mostly because we enjoy the course. The B & A loop was our test for the day, which I consider the best combination, especially as the B course has come on well after its recent renovation.
Clear skies, with a breeze, made for ideal golfing conditions, but good scores were hard to find. Jeff Wylie (H/cap 7) played steady golf with 17 on each 9, for a total of 34 points to lead the way home from Allan Cassin (11) with 31, ahead of a posse on 30 points.
Jeff & Allan also shared the near pin awards.
Thursday, Dec. 26, Pattavia – Stableford
Thursday was our second visit to the renamed and refurbished Pattavia Century. The course was in proper good condition, but once you get off the fairways the rough is quite penal, with the ground very hard. Best advice would be to stay on the straight & narrow, but easier said than done!
Count backs were again the order of the day, with Paddy Devereux (21) getting the nod over George Gamble (24) 16/14, after both signed for 34 points. 3 players were a further point behind, with Ken Blinco (16) being first eliminated after having 17 points on the back 9. Jeff Wylie (7) edged Phillip Waite (13) for third spot on the last six, 14/13 after both had recorded 19 on the back.
Near pins went to Willem & Jeff.
