PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Sept. 30, Pattavia – Stableford

Tuesday was a visit to Pattavia, with intermittent rain over pretty much the whole day, and with carts not allowed on the fairways we implemented ‘lift, clean & place’ through the green.  The rain wasn’t heavy enough to stop play, just sufficient to keep the cover on the bag and keep the grips dry.  

Jeff Wylie (H/cap 7) led the way home today, with Neil Harvey (17) in 2nd spot.  Highlight of the day had to be Jonathan’s near pin on the Par 3, 7th, knocking Jeff off the marker after he had stiffed it to make an easy 2.  Jonathan and Neil shared the near pins with 2 each.

Thursday, Oct. 2, Khao Kheow – Stableford

Thursday we went to Khao Kheow following a visit the week before, when we had played C & B which was in great condition.  This week we were sent to the C & A combination, and while the C is in great nick, unfortunately the A is in relatively poor condition, with the grass covering sparse in some areas over several of the fairways.  Hole A8 is currently playing as a medium length par 4 as the tee has been moved forward 50+ yards while some renovations are undertaken.

Jeff Wylie led the way with a solid 33 points, with Jonathan Pratt (11) on 30 points collecting the 2nd prize.  Despite the par 3s being collectively easier than Pattavia’s, only 2 were won today, Jeff & Willem with 1 each and Willem converting for a nice 2 on A5.

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 (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.
