Kelly back with a bang


IPGC Golf from The Tara Court Golf Group

Tuesday, Oct. 6, Silky Oak – Scramble

On Tuesday we took part in the four-person scramble which was organized by Green Valley.  It was a very enjoyable day and the course was much improved from the last time we had played there, especially the greens.  While our teams performed reasonably well we weren’t good enough to get in the prizes but everyone enjoyed the day very much and we would like to thank the management and staff of Green Valley for a well-organized competition and congratulations to the winners for a very good score.

Thursday, Oct. 8, Parichat – Stableford

Today we decided to give this new course a try to see what it was like.  A few of our members had bought some vouchers at a charity auction and they had donated them to the group so we were going to have what we thought was going to be a cheap day’s golf just having to pay for the caddies and golf carts which together came to 1,000 baht.  When we finished the game we saw that if we had played there on either Monday or Tuesday we could have got everything for 950 baht and a free meal included without any vouchers!

When we were doing the presentation we asked our members what they thought of the course as it was the first time they had played there.  Probably the kindest comment we got was that it was a ‘Mickey Mouse’ course and most of them said that even if we got everything for free they would not be interested in playing there again.  The general consensus was that it was the worst designed course they had ever played on with some ridiculous holes on it and the seventeenth probably being voted the worst one.  The only good thing you could say about it was that all the staff were very nice, both at the reception and in the restaurant.

Declan Kelly has just returned from a holiday in Ireland and he very quickly let us know that he was back as he won the day with thirty four points.  Declan also kept up his record of having a ‘2’, without a doubt Declan gets more of them than all the group put together and today was no different.

Jon Batty, after having an excellent level par round in Mountain Shadow on Tuesday, had to settle for second place today with thirty three points but Jon also got a ‘2’ to share the pot with Declan.  Joe Peters, who has also just returned from a holiday in Ireland, came in third place with thirty two.
