PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort
Tuesday, August 27, Khao Kheow – Stableford
Tuesday saw us visit Khao Kheow, with the A & C the combination played from the yellow tees at a tad over 6300 yards. The B loop renovation is nearing completion, another week or two and it will be available for play, so I am told. Several holes at KK are not currently up to the usual high standard expected after many years of playing this venue, but I am sure the management will get it in order in the near future.
Owen Walkley (13) came to grips best with the day’s conditions to sign for a respectable 34 points. Phill Waite (13), making his return to golf after being hit by a ball several weeks ago, managed to score second spot with a solid 31 points.
Tuesday winners, Owen & Phill.
Near pins went to Phill, Jonathan & Jeff with 2.
Thursday, August 29, Phoenix – Stableford
Phoenix was our venue for Thursday, with the Mountain & Lakes being the allotted test, while Ocean continues with its maintenance. With tees well forward to near the yellows on Mountain, the course was playing at just under 6000 yards.
Jeff Wylie (5) maintained some form over the shortened 18 holes to shoot 72 and sign for 41 points. Martin Hayes (13) playing with Jeff, was going shot for shot, but faded on the last few holes to finish with 36 points, collecting third place. New lady player Noo Pulbrook (13) almost made a dream start to playing with SCR, scoring 40 points to just be edged into second spot.
Near pins were spread around between Jeff, Phill & Martin.
On Wednesday it was the PAGS Tournament at Eastern Star, with a group of 4 representatives from SCR, namely Willem, Jonathan, Jeff & Paddy who all put on a good showing. Names were written on several technicals, with Willem & Jeff also getting runner up spots in their flights.
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 who have opted for the “Silver” tee option. Call 089 0941 841 for scheduling or enquiries. Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
