Owen way out in front (again)


PSC golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Oct. 8, Bangpra – Stableford

First to Tuesday when we again accepted the generosity of Tropical Bert’s to share their monthly booking at Bangpra, the last for this year’s Low Season.  Conditions were not great, to say the least, with the course close to sodden, but the rain held off and we sloshed our way round under clear skies.  

Playing ‘lift, clean & place’ did not fully compensate for the conditions, with good scores thin on the ground.  Joop (H/cap 32) led the way home with 32 points, ahead of Martin Hayes (13) with 29 hard earned points.  Near pins went to Martin, Jeff & Hidde with 2.

Thursday, Oct. 10, Greenwood – Stableford

As the headline suggests Owen Walkley (H/cap 14) was again out on his own, 7 points clear of the next best at Greenwood, where we played the C & A combination from the white tees.

After a couple of rain free days, Greenwood was in markedly better condition, dampness wise, than Tuesday’s venue.  ‘Lift, clean & place’ was still the order of the day, with the occasional casual water drop required, but another week or so of no rain and we should be back to playing the ball as it lies.

In second spot today with a more realistic score of 36 points was Willem Lasonder (21) and he played well to compile that score ahead of several players in the mid 30s.

Near pins were spread around between Jeff, Hidde, Owen & Neil.

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!
