Only six players turned out for this fine venue with its perfectly presented course of pristine fairways and well manicured greens.  Our players elected to go off the white tees, which resulted in a course over 6,800 yards in length and made it very difficult to reach the greens in regulation.

One reason our members give this venue a miss is their buggy policy of “pay for 18 holes but you can only use on 14 as the first and last holes on each nine are no go zones.”

Rab McDonald did a fine job of holding Geoff Parker at bay, beating him on a count back on the final six holes by two shots.

Wednesday, July 20, Plutaluang (white tees) – Stableford

1st Geoff Parker (14) 33pts

2nd Jimmy Carter (14) 32pts

3rd Les Hall (23) 30pts

Near Pins: Les Hall, Geoff Cox, Jimmy Carr.

Only eight players today with many being put off by the heavy rains the previous night and the course advising us that no buggies off the pathways rule was in force.  Despite having called before to enquire if the rate quoted had changed because it was a Buddha Day and being told that there was no change, on arrival we were charged the weekend rate and were told we had spoken to the wrong office when calling!

The course played long as there was no run on the ball and Geoff Parker beat Jimmy Carr by one point.

Friday, July 22, Eastern Star (white tees) – Stableford

1st Gerry Cooney (17) 33pts

2nd Rab McDonald (17) 31pts

3rd Geoff Parker (14) 31pts

Near Pins: Gerry Cooney (2).

Nine players travelled down Sukhumvit Road to a course that has blossomed after the recent rains and was back to its former glory.  Not too much run on the fairways but the greens were good.

Gerry Cooney cleaned up on the day with a win and the only two near pins while many others were finding the going tough with some poor scores being recorded.
