No bikes, just buggies


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Oct. 21, Eastern Star – Stableford

Tuesday was a visit to the often maligned Eastern Star, where we found the course to be in more than acceptable condition.  The fairways were rolling out, which is the exception at the moment, with many courses unable to get the mowers out regularly.  A small minority of greens had some repair work, but overall they were in satisfactory condition, rolling consistently.

K & Mam joined the group at Eastern Star.K & Mam joined the group at Eastern Star.

In reference to the headline, we had Rick Bevington (H/cap 22), of Bikes for Tykes notoriety, play with us today and gain second spot, a solitary point behind winner Jeff Wylie (7) with 35 points.  Near pins went to Paul Taylor & Jeff, with 2 left unclaimed, so we will donate that prize money to Rick’s Bikes for Tykes charity.

Friday, Oct. 24, Wangjuntr – Stableford

Thursday was a Public Holiday, so to avoid the extra charges we shifted our game to Friday and went to Wangjuntr to play the Valley course.  We played this day as a social day, with the choice of tees up to the individual, as the course has some challenging holes.

The fairways were the converse of Eastern Star, with very little roll due to the grass being quite long as the weather has not been mower friendly.  There was plenty of work going on this day, so with a run of favourable conditions they (the fairways) will soon be back to their normal state.

Several memorable holes, but the elevated par-three 17th ate Gerd & Dan’s lunch, while Jeff flew the green and got a great ricochet off the rocks, only to leave his birdie putt a roll short.

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.
