TGC Golf Competition write up for week ending July 26th
For the last time this month the Golf Club took advantage of the low season price for Laem Chabang. Previously we played A & C, maybe we were due for a change, well this week B & C. Just in great order. I had forgotten some of the holes on B. Both the most difficult holes on each nine had a water component, how good was the drive and how much can you take on.
Chris Delamare AUS 38 points off 1 and the Project Smile near pin, missed the putt Kim Scaddan AUS 36 Points off 19 Bob Catlow 34 points off 17
One van full for Pattana Tuesday. Played A & C, no rain and fairways were in excellent order. The greens appear that they had a light sanding within a couple of weeks and are looking for some rain to finish the job. Road works on 36 still an issue for the trip home. Nick Handscombe UK 41 points off 13 Ishi, back in town. JPN 38 points off 19 Nick Hague AUS 37 points off 9 The Project Smile near pin Gerald Mattews AUS, missed the putt but was bragging about not losing a ball for the day
A very pleasant day, Thursday, Eastern Star. The day was mostly overcast and the breeze picked up for the last nine holes. Eastern Star is priced at 1250 all in which is great for low season. The greens have had some work done recently but it had little effect on their pace and how well the ball rolled. We played the front tees which is reflected in the scoring. The Club House renovations have been completed and finished off to world class standards. Allan Frandsen 41 points off 17 Bob Catlow 39 points also off 17 Bruno 37 points off 10 Project Smile near pin Paul Kennedy, missed the putt
Ended the week at Navy. Played north and west, fairways are still that tough grass but the greens were a treat. The water level on the lake is still wanting. On the lighthouse par 3 there is only puddles between the tee and the green, not lake as expected. Nick Handscombe 38 points off 13 two guys with 35 points, Zed Beloglavic and Fred Birch on the weekend two guys go home, Chris Bailey and Nick Handscombe, thanks for your support
