Tues 16th June Pattana – A & B & Thurs 18th Eastern Star
On Tuesday 16th June we went to Pattana, where we played the A & B loops. It was some time ago we played here. We were always impressed by the quality of this golf course. This time we were disappointed by the condition of the course. The quality was not as usual, maybe the heavy rain was a problem for course maintenance.
The weather was oppressive and dark clouds were around us, but we kept it dry.
The results were not very impressive. Willem Lasonder won with 33 stable ford points and Dan Garvey was second with 32 Stable ford points.
The nears to the pin were for Rosaleen Garvey, Dave Smith and Jonathan Pratt.
On Thursday 18th June we were at Eastern Star. The course was in reasonable condition after the heavy rain in the night before. It was the same oppressive weather with a dark sky. We had only a few drops. This weather is exhausting to play.
Tim Knight was in a good shape today with steady long drives. It seemed he had no problems with the weather. He won with 37 stable ford points. Second was Neil Harvey with 33 stable ford points.
The nears to the pin were a problem today. Nobody got on the 4 greens.
