PSC golf from Siam Country Resort
Tuesday, Feb. 18, Pattavia Century – Stableford
Tuesday was a trip to Pattavia Century. The course was in good shape and we played under clear skies with a light breeze, so the scores were solid, if not spectacular. The exception to this may well have been Bob Edwards (8), a 3 point winner with 39 points. George Gamble (23) was next best with 36 points, after getting away to a good start, turning with 20 before fading a little on the back 9.
A couple of points back on 34 were a trio of players led by the returning Martin Hayes (14) with 19 on the back 9, ahead of Jeff Wylie (7) with 17, while Yves Philibert (31) had 15.

Near pins went to Paddy, Martin & Bob completed his day out with 2.
Thursday, Feb. 20, Crystal Bay – Stableford
Crystal Bay was the venue for Thursday’s outing with the B & C combination our allotted loop. Following several negative reports in the media of late, there was some consternation today over what the course condition would be, but some personal putting dilemmas aside, the general consensus was the course was in decent shape.
They do have some sprinkler maintenance issues here, resulting in some damp areas, but these could be fixed before a next visit. The greens also suffer in comparison to days gone by, but are acceptable in their current condition, with good shots holding the surface, although speeds are a little inconsistent.
Jeff Wylie (7), despite getting off to a rocky start with “the easiest shot in golf” (the 4th putt), was able to adjust before eventually signing for 36 points, while in second spot was Martin Hayes (14) with a repeat of Tuesday’s score, 34.
Near pins were spread around today, with Jeff, Martin, Paddy and Bob hitting the target, while the latter 2 were able to convert for birdies.
Note: Siam Country Resort, Restaurant & Bar is located just off Siam Country Club Rd, after going under the arch past the 7/11, turn right after 50 metres, with the venue on the left another 200 metres along. Golf from here is generally played on Tuesday & Thursday, with the Resort hosting prompt presentations on both days. As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including ladies & seniors (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option. Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.
