Back to Navy on Thursday, cheap, cheerful and seriously must have the best caddies in Pattaya.  The course had a competition on Wednesday so the condition of the West course was superb, fast greens (really, I can’t believe it either, fast greens at Navy) and the fairways were great.  The East course was not as good, but still in tip top shape for this venue.

We had a medium size group of players today and got away on time off the white tees.  The course was a little busy because they were coring the greens on the North nine, but we still moved along at a good pace.

We saw a couple of good scores today with Ray the overall winner on 87 gross (74 net).  He was closely followed by Mark, Bruce and Gary.

The scribe’s group at times looked like they we were playing with earth moving equipment more so than golf clubs – never seen so much sand move around the place.  An example of this was Dave who thinned it out of one bunker into another on the other side of the green.  He then commented that he didn’t like this bunker, so what does he do?  He blades it back into the first bunker!  This was followed up by a shank to finally escape the sand.

We welcomed back Henry today but had to say farewell to Gary off to Australia, Mark back off to work, and Bjorn off to Bangkok before returning home.  Thanks for the good times boys and see you all again when you get back.

Note:  We are playing Phoenix on Tuesday 10th Sept and will be leaving the bar at 9.15a.m.  Places are still available so contact Paul for details on 087 189 5250 or call into the bar on Soi LK Metro.
