PSC Growling Swan Golf played out of Bogey’s Bar & Grill
November 7 Greenwood G.C. Stableford
Thirteen is unlucky for some, but if you are playing golf with us it turns out alright. Yes that was the number for us on Thursday.
The venue was the great Greenwood GC, one of our favorite courses. I guess they may have felt guilty as although they have moved the prices for high season we were able to purchase green fee vouchers from PSC saving us B100 per golfer. It all helps with the way the baht and the dollar are going.
As stated Greenwood is on our calendar for every month. I still think if they looked after us a bit more (price wise) we would play twice per month. Anyway the course was in excellent condition and there was nothing that we as a group could complain about. Individuals of course could complain but that’s all to do with one’s ability.
Well with thirteen golfers we had One Flight with three placing’s, we also had all novelties in play.
I would like to mention something that took place after Monday’s event. As per usual if numbers are at a certain level we do a draw for a lucky golfer to win a pizza (of their choice). Bill McGarvie was the lucky winner, and as Bill was leaving he asked me if he could put it out for his fellow golfers.
If you do good, well they say good things come. It did for Bill (shooter) McGarvie, he took the day’s event by a solitary point, leaving three golfers tied for second and all on 33 points. Winning the countback and getting second was Colin Stielow with Eric Black taking out third. Unlucky was Alex Field running third in the countback.
1st Bill McGarvie (12) 34 pts.
2nd Colin Stielow (23) 33 pts.
3rd Eric Black (15) 33 pts.
Near pins: B2 Alex Field, B5 Steve Younger, C3 No Body, and C6 Eric Black.
Longest first putt: B9 Steve Younger and C9 JJ Harney.
Back at Bogey’s we welcomed Colm Mullin, Ian Pickles and Pat Kavanagh. No farewells!
D-For was set free by Alex and the punters and players at Bogeys Bar and Grill were generous as always with their contributions towards the needy in Pattaya. All are thanked for this.
