Fri 10th July – Pattavia
A very unpleasant day for golf at Pattavia for the last game of the week. Grey overcast conditions led to rain, sometimes heavy enough to stop play. Thunder rumbled all around us and lightning strikes were close enough to be of major concern. By the closing holes, all the bad weather had blown away and conditions were nice, which begs the question why didn’t we wait for it to pass in the first place? As always the course was in nice condition although the greens were a little slower than we have come to expect.
Scores were again back to the lower end of the scale. Michael Brett took first place with thirty-three points in a round that included a couple of forgettable holes. Jimmy Carr took second, a stroke back and Dave Ashman rounded out the scoring with thirty-one.
Kevin Le Bar played well but because of a couple of lapses finished out of the winner’s circle. He did, however, manage to bag a couple of near pins with Jimmy taking one and a very fortuitous bounce off a tree saw Dave Ashman take the final pin.
1st Michael Brett (16) 33 points
2nd Jimmy Carr (17) 32 points
3rd Dave Ashman (23) 31 points
Near pins Dave Ashman, Jimmy Carr, & Kevin LeBar X 2.
Next week we have a nice schedule which includes Laem Chabang and Royal Lakeside before we head off on our first away trip of the year to Khao Yai to play Sir James, Khao Yai Golf Club, Rancho Charnvee, and Mountain Creek.
