PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Nov. 11, Greenwood – Stableford

Greenwood was the chosen venue for Tuesday’s game, with the A & B combination from the whites, at just under 6500 yards, our test of the day.  The course was in overall good condition, which combined with clear skies made for a good day for golf.  

Regular SCR player Jim Federspiel had some friends over from the U.S. and they came along and gave us a bit of schooling.  Left hander Mike, playing off 9, led the way with 38 points while Steve (H/cap 7) picked up second spot with 34 points.  Jim followed closely behind with 33, so it was a good day for the good ol’ boys.  Mike also picked up a near pin prize, along with Jeff & Willem.

Thursday, Nov. 13, Treasure Hill – Stableford

Thursday saw us make a return trip to Treasure Hill, where we played from the yellow tees at a little under 6400 yards.  The fairways were in very good condition, although some of the greens were suffering a tad after too much recent rain.  Hopefully they will come good, as the course is a good test, and is reasonably priced over the high season.

Willem Lasonder (18) was pretty much in a class of his own, score wise, with a handy 35 points, while Jeff Wylie (8) had a paltry 27, for second place.  With a small field today, we had no near pins, although Sam should get a mention for a nice birdie 2 on #6, while he could easily have had a double, just missing on #13.

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.
