Lesser lights provide some great golf


PSC Golf from Mulligans Lakeside

Tuesday, May 3, Rayong C.C. – Stableford

The headline refers to the golf courses where we played this week; both cheaper courses providing good tests combined with good value.  Tuesday, we visited Rayong Country Club where they have shown some initiative in their pricing structure, encouraging the use of their carts, very progressive, where others just follow the line with 1 person per cart policies, discouraging golfers from visiting.

The scores were a mixed bag, with Jeff Wylie (6) showing that good scores were out there, with 41 points, that’s 73 off the stick for the mathematically challenged, followed in by Graham Hiskett (14) with 36.

Near Pins were secured by Wes, Jeff & Bart getting 2, converting both for birdie 2s.

Thursday, May 5, Century Chonburi – Stableford

Thursday was a holiday, but rather than change days this week, we decided on a visit to Century Chonburi.  Much maligned because of its lack of facilities, it is definitely a diamond in the rough, with the course providing a stern but fair test.  The greens offer some undulations which challenge all somewhere through the round, with the threat of a 3 putt an imminent reality.

Jim Fortune (27), Dave Edwards (16) and Jeff Wylie (6) all managed 31 points before a count-back split declaring Jeff the winner, with Dave second.

Near Pins today went to Lol and Ken (2), no conversions this time for birdie though.

Note:  Mulligans Lakeside plays golf generally on Tuesday & Thursday (we sometimes change to accommodate a Thai Holiday).  Presentations are made at the course on Tuesday, with Mulligans Lakeside hosting the Thursday presentation.  For more details on scheduling etc, please call 089 094 1841 or 081 935 8088.  Hope to see you there, Cheers & Good Golfing!
