Fri 21st – Bangpra
Torrential rain through the night and into the morning made golf unlikely today, however by departure time it had cleared. The fine weather golfers stayed away so low numbers today, could also be that three days in a row was too much for all but the diehards.
The course was empty when we started but by the back nine, it became crowded, probably another late tee off deal kicked in. Pick, clean, and place was again in operation and it was necessary, despite that the course was in good condition but as with most courses lately the rough was deep, probably a cost-cutting measure to save mower fuel.
The week finished as it began with good scoring, Dave Ashman and Michael Brett were tied on thirty-eight points with the latter taking it on countback. Jimmy Carr took third place with thirty-five points. Only two near pins were won with one each to Dave Ashman and Michael Brett.
The Thai government is promoting domestic tourism to help the economy during COVID restrictions on border entries and the Bunker Boys are getting in on the spirit already planning our next away trip to Kanchanaburi instead of the usual Hua Hin trip in September. Courses Like Royal Ratchaburi, Grand Prix, and Evergreen Hills are amongst the courses on our list so those interested should secure a place early. The Good Times Inn will be our base.
1st Michael Brett (16) 38 points
2nd Dave Ashman (22) 38 points
3rd Jimmy Carr (17) 35 points
Near pins Dave Ashman & Michael Brett.
