Larry leads the way at Phoenix


The Blue Moose Golf Group

The Blue Moose Bar launched its second outing this past 12th of April and Phoenix Golf Club was chosen for the day’s event.  Fifteen players hit the course that took the energy out of almost everyone.  The front nine greens were still recovering from aeration work and the back nine greens were rock hard.  Just when players got used to the front nine they had to adjust to the back nine.

The climbs to the tee boxes and greens were also a bit much for some of the older players, one cashing it in after nine holes.  Asked about getting a yellow flag to permit the cart to be closer to the green, players were told no problem for an additional 1,000 baht.  So much for concern for the older folks!

Back at the Blue Moose Bar the cards were tallied and the scores were not too bad.

Larry Emerson took first place with a 36, Joe St. Laurent was second with 35 and Richard Hall followed with a 34.  There were four players with 33 points; Mark Campbell, Jim Hern, Matt Millar, and Bruce Funk.
