PSC golf from Tropical Bert’s
Friday, 14 June, Pattana – Stableford
The course was in very good condition as it seemed the recent rain showers had mostly missed this area. We did however play ‘lift, clean, and place’ in the fairways based on reports of some rain the day before.
17 players made the trip after 5 begged off because of the possibility of rain showers, and those 5 missed a very pleasant day out on a fine course. We played the B and C nines from the shorter, 6400 yards, yellow tees.
Over all the scores were good and the entire experience at this fine facility was pleasurable. Hopefully we can book it again in the next couple months on one of their Sports Days.

Tuesday, June 18, Greenwood – Stableford
Another trip up the 331, which is not as bad as it once was, but with more and more transport trucks on the road one does need to allow plenty of time.
The test for the day was the A and C nines, as the B nine is still under some major renovation projects. We did get caught in a few very short rain showers but never enough to stop play. In fact it seemed that as soon as you got out the umbrella and covered your clubs, the shower was over and all went back to normal.
Other than several bumpy greens due to the plugging of new grass, the course was in good condition. Being a Sports Day it was also excellent value for the cost.
