PSC Golf from Mulligans Lakeside

Tuesday, August 7, Rayong C.C. – Stableford

First to Tuesday, when we travelled east on Hwy 36 and turned left to travel to the sometimes maligned Rayong Country Club.  This course has several of the more challenging holes in the area, #4 & #18 spring to mind immediately, with pars hard won on both these holes.  The course was in decent condition and when considering the price structure offered by the club, it is good value, especially when compared to some of the self proclaimed ‘A’ courses.

Jeff Wylie (5) continued his good form, playing particularly well on the back 9 to sign for a solid 38 points, next best being the recently returned Allan Cassin (12) with 33 points.  Near pins were shared around between Phill, Owen, Jeff & Willem.

Willem Lasonder. Willem Lasonder.

Thursday, August 9, The Emerald – Stableford

Thursday was again a journey east on Hwy 36, this time turning right and making our way to Emerald, another Nick Faldo course which provides its own particular test, and although comparatively short, its undulating fairways make it a reasonable challenge.  The greens here have returned to good condition following maintenance over the previous few months.

Willem Lasonder (22) continued his return to form, after a lengthy lay-off, holding off Owen Walkley (12) on count back to the last 6 holes, 13/11, after both returned 37 points.  Willem was in particularly good form on the par 3s, with 3 near pins, while visitor Paul secured the other.

Note:  Mulligans Lakeside plays golf generally on Tuesday & Thursday, with ML hosting prompt presentations on both days.  Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.  Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
