Two buses and a couple of cars ferried today’s golfers to this lovely course. The trip itself was uneventful other than dodging the craters on the road leading from the highway to the course proper.

Plenty of overnight rain left punters worried that carts would not be allowed on the course but despite a heavy ground, they were. Thus playing conditions were in our favor!

We played from the white tees and this made for a longer second shot as there was very little run to be obtained.

Dave Neal and his pretty partner Yarnni returned from a trip to Vietnam and were a bit tired from there excursion. This didn’t seem to faze Dave who was that relaxed that he played the best golf of the day and took out first place by two shots from Bill Steinmann on 36, followed by Martin Kempton on 35 and Phil Moore on 33.

Thursday, Sept. 20, Burapha – Stableford

You start to crow about the numbers that you are getting then out of the blue this happens. We were heading to, what I believe, the best course that we play but only with a handful of golfers. Maybe the punters are telling us something, this being a course that we can only play 3 months of the year as the price for the other 9 months is outrageously expensive.

As per usual the course was in great nick, we have grown accustomed to this it is one of the premier courses in the region! We could only play the one flight but we did include all the novelties. We attacked the course from the white tees and played 9’s C & D in that order!

Rudy Regenass (H/cap 15) held sway on the day and won with 37 points. Near pin prizes went to Denis Steele (2) and Dave Neal while the long putt award was bagged by Alex Field.
