GROWLING SWAN 5/7
KING NAGA G.C. – 5th July, 2018. STABLEFORD.
“Wan takes the Chocolates Again.”
A good field of 18 golfers headed out in cars and a bus to the infamous King Naga Golf Course. It’s always good to see an increase in numbers.
If only they would revamp the facilities then this is a course that, at the pricing they are charging, you would have to book months in advance to get on. As it was said to me about the facilities, “We come here to play golf and rest is in inconsequential.”
Well numbers are up so it’s game on! The course was in great condition, other than some of the front nine greens still had sand on them. Otherwise than that it was a good day with no complaints. We attacked the course from the yellow tees, as we tend to do when Peter Grey plays! The weather stayed with us for the day, it was warm but not too bad, a slight breeze kept the temperature down.
1st Wan Makmul (26) 41 pts.
2nd Keith Buchanan (15) 38 pts.
3rd Don Richardson (17) 38 pts.
4th Dick Braimbridge (34) 37 pts

After 18 holes of pain and suffering our host welcomed back “The Viper’, Mark Stapleton, good to see Mark after a few months being absent! The girls put on a great feed of Larb Chicken. Thanks girls greatly appreciated!
