Pattavia – 26th Aug.
Monday and we are off to play “The Old Pineapple Plantation” Pattavia GC. I can remember playing here prior to the new club house being built. It used to be a sad place and when you finished your game you would queue up to shower in one of the few showers that worked. Then to dry yourself or attempt to (a lot of our golfers took their own towels) on what I used to say was “You would get a better job done using The Sydney Morning Herald”. Man has that changed!
L to R; Dick Braimbridge, Keith Buchanan and today’s winner Brad Todd!
Fifteen golfers turned out for today’s game, from all reports the course was in good nick (as it is always) fairways were clean and mowed, bunkers were clean and raked and the greens well, what can I say? When putting at Pattavia you have to be on your game early or your game will be destroyed! Weather was good and made the day a little easier.
Today we welcomed back these golfers, Allan Nolan, Peter Brignell, Glenn Henriksen and Gary Williams. Let’s hope that you had a good day and enjoyed yourself?
So today we played from The White tees, playing One Flight only with three placing’s. All the novelties were in play.
Well, Brad Todd haven’t you had a good few days, your beloved Magpies secured a top four spot, then to come out here today and knock off top spot with 39 points. Well done! Second home was that man again (it’s hard to keep him out of the money) Keith Buchanan, a solitary shot behind our leader. Third home and filling the last spot on the podium was “The Reverend” Richard Braimbridge yet another shot behind.
1st Brad Todd (22) 39 pts.
2nd Keith Buchanan (12) 38 pts.
3rd Richard Braimbridge (35) 37 pts.
NEAR THE PIN.
LONG FIRST PUTT.
9 Mashi Kaneta.
18 Denis Steele.
Back at Bogey’s Bar & Grill we conducted the usual Monday “Have Your Green Fees Paid Draw”. The lucky name that was drawn was Gordon Clegg, unfortunately Gordon was not in the Bar! This Draw is every Monday but you need to be in the Bar to collect it!
D-For was set free by Alex and the punters and players at Bogey’s Bar and Grill were generous as always with their contributions towards the needy in Pattaya. All are thanked for this.
For serious golfing with a dash of fun, the Growling Swan welcomes golfers of all persuasions, be it young or old, male or female. We generally play on Mondays and Thursdays at any one of the fine courses around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey for bookings or any information on 086 1503 086.
