No rain sees scores improve


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Nov. 4, Pattavia – Stableford

Pattavia was our chosen venue for Tuesday’s game, with the course in good condition overall.  With the rain having eased off over the previous few days there was even some run on the fairways, due to the staff being able to get the mowers out.  Greens were true, but nowhere near their firey pace of days past, which left the course somewhat vulnerable.

Sam Gettinby (H/cap 23) has found some good form of late and today he posted 36 points, but was pipped at the post by a fast finishing Jeff Wylie (8) with 37 points.  Sam and Jeff also shared the near pins between them.

Thursday, Nov. 6, Khao Kheow – Stableford

Thursday saw us return for our usual monthly game at Khao Kheow, with the B & A combination our allotted test of the day.

The course had dried out considerably, but with management declaring carts not to be driven on fairways, we implemented the PSC local rule of ‘lift, clean & place’ on the closely mown surfaces.  I am sure this precautionary action will benefit the course in the long run, and it won’t be long before we will be playing the ball down.

Jeff Wylie (8) continued his run of form to again record 37 points, well clear of Daniel Oshiro (19) with 32 points.  The majority of players broke 30 points for the day, an indication that the course is drying out and better scores are ahead.  Near pins went to Jeff, Sam & Dan.

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.
