Fri 4th Sept – Khao Kheow When the score cards from the early groups came in, it looked to be a low scoring day, but then group number four came in and stopped that thought. Mike Firkin kept up recent good form to take the win with a big 40 points and another Green Jacket, although he ran away to Hua Hin before the photo op. Also in that group, Wayne Peppernell and Bill Copeland

Thurs 3rd Sept – Pattaya Country Club Unfortunately, we had to cancel our Tuesday competition at Greenwood, because it was raining too much. So, we were looking forward to our Thursday game on Pattaya Country Club. Thursday 3rd September was a nice day. The course was in very good condition and there was a very good green fee deal. The weather was good, cloudy and not too hot, but very soggy. Willem & Dave We did

Weds 2nd Sept – Greenwood B & C September already! Is it me getting old or are these days and months really going quicker than before? September also saw us run out of luck at Greenwood. After being washed out at a game during July, and receiving a rain check for that, we have had many days with dark clouds overhead at this course, but managed to get through the day dry. Right on our

Mon 31st Aug – Phoenix Gold It was Phoenix golf today and the weather was perfect with jus some high cloud and low temperatures, it tried a little later to rain on us but it was only a few spits in the end. The course was in great condition with very fast greens and no way you could get a bad lie anywhere. We absolutely shot around the course we were in the locker room

Fri 4th Sept – Khao Kheow

When the score cards from the early groups came in, it looked to be a low scoring day, but then group number four came in and stopped that thought.

Mike Firkin kept up recent good form to take the win with a big 40 points and another Green Jacket, although he ran away to Hua Hin before the photo op.

Also in that group, Wayne Peppernell and Bill Copeland both recorded good scores of 36 points with Wayne winning the countback to grab second place.

Look at the ‘best nines’ to see how unflattering the rest of the scores.

This course is in very good condition, except for the ongoing saga of the tee boxes, but the greens are the best we have had in a few games, and no sanding today.

The weather started out as fine, then a sprinkle of rain by about three holes in, but not enough to stop play. However, a heavier shower came as we were into the second nine which did stop us for about 15 minutes, and allowed a couple of players time to photograph the two elephants at the side of the course. The rain did not affect the way the course played.

Since the resumption of golf after the lockdown we have enjoyed pretty much ‘millionaires’ golf with very few, if any, other customers at golf courses, and mostly we were allowed to start earlier, as much as 30 minutes at times.

So, it was not a case of if, but when, we would find ourselves behind other groups and not going early and, as this was a public holiday, there were other groups., Because we have been spoilt, some in our group were not happy about having to wait for earlier bookings to go ahead, and let it be known.

We can’t always have our own way.
