PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Oct. 1, The Emerald – Stableford

Tuesday’s result was always just a matter where and when, not if, as Owen Walkley (H/cap 15) found his swing again after going through the golfing doldrums of late, with his handicap reflecting his loss of form.  The previous week, after his 36 points at Treasure Hill when everyone else struggled, the writing was on the wall, and today he blitzed the field with 44 points at Emerald.  

The course was in good condition, with recent renovations nearly healed, and the greens running nicely.  Jeff Wylie (5) just edged Jonathan Pratt (11) on count back 21/16 for the runner-up spot after both signed for 37 points.

Near pins went to Jonatham, Joop, Owen & Jeff.

Thursday, Oct. 3, Pattana – Stableford

A small field turned out for Pattana, as we played the A & B combo.  The course was a bit on the damp side and we copped a good downpour which lasted for 3 holes or so on the back 9.  The 2 groups persevered through the rain, as there was no lightning and the greens were still playable.  It has become more the norm for groups to take to the shelters at the first hint of rain, as did several other groups on this day at Pattana.

Thursday’s top two – Joop and Neil.Thursday’s top two – Joop and Neil.

The rain certainly affected the scores, and not in a good way, as Joop (32) led the way home with 28 points, while Neil Harvey (19) just edged Jeff for 2nd on count back 14/10.

Near pins were claimed by Willem & Jeff.

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 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.  Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
