Monday Green Valley Monthly Medal. What a great day and the condition of the course. Sunday was the final day of a Singha Tournament; the pins were the Sunday pins. In all sorts of positions that the local greens keepers never use. When asking a caddie for advice “not sure, haven’t seen the pin there before”. Common answer.
The weather was overcast all day with breeze, at least a club either way. Welcome back to Kevin Mornaghan as well as Dale Shier back for another break. net 63 off 16 Dale Shier UK and yacking about the cricket (painful) net 66 off 18 Neil Patterson AUS net 69 off 2 Richie McGhee AUS and Project Smile near pin, sank the putt
Tuesday up the highway to Pattavia Century. Sunny conditions which means no rain. A good day was had by all. For the newcomers the greens were tough as usual to read. (no surprizes there). Every player had at least a 3 putt. Graeme Lomas 39 points off 16 Neil Patterson 36 points off 18 Project Smile near pin, Carlos Aguire US, had three putts to complete the hole
A perfect day for golf at Khao Kheow on Thursday. Overcast all day with some wind. The first few holes a little sticky but the day just got better. It wasn’t until about the 14th did our first group run into a 5 ball, still finished well under four hours. We played A & B, the greens just rolled beautifully. They have had sufficient rain that the fairways have regained their colour. Neil Patterson NZ 44 points off 18 Captain 41 points (just when I thought I was a chance) Buzz Project Smile near pin, missed the putt
Finished the week at Navy, played North and West generally accepted as the better 18. Overcast conditions with no rain. One par 5 has trees in the middle of the fairway, wouldn’t you know when you hit your best drive of the day. That’s golf I suppose. Pleasing the NZ bandit from yesterday had a bad day. Just joking of course. His group are off to the fight’s tomorrow night. Enjoy, I was told today there are fights every night (it is the Thai national sport). Andy Li UK 38 points off 11 Steve Sweeney AUS 36 points off 20 Project Smile Zed, missed the putt
