On Tuesday 19th June we went to Pattaya Country Club. It was a half sunny day with most of the time a cool breeze. The course was in reasonable condition, but the greens were very bumpy. You must avoid coming in the rough. It is a real problem to come out of it. We had a good and enjoyable ...
John A. A Gem at Treasure Hill on Friday June 15, Treasure Hill – St
Since watching the US Open is boring and filled with commercials, it is understandable that the golfing world has turned its attention to the goings on at Tropical Golf in Pattaya. And why not? Every shot is as entertaining as it is unpredicta...
Phil goes From Wig to Winner at Pattana on Wed Jun 20-S/ford
It’s a good thing we don’t allow gambling in Thailand as many would lose plenty if we bet on golfers, with the many drastic form reversals.
Two days ago Phil Davies wore the dreaded “wig” for having the worst score of the day. Today he wears ...
Tuesday the 19th June 2018 : Bangpakong Riverside Country Club.

The drive up had been fine with no sign of rain and to suddenly hit water was a surprise, it seemed ...

Not the last ...
Tommy’s 40 Beats Greg’s 40 at Khao Kheow C+A Mon Jun 18 S/ford
Playing at Khao Kheow and scoring 40 points is quite an achievement, and today two players, with quite different handicaps did themselves proud. It all came down to the countback where Tommy Marshall had the better back nine (A course). From his ...
CRYSTAL BAY – 14th June, 2018. STABLEFORD
Buffalo Bill losses his way except on the “Golf Course”!!
It was a bus load and a couple of cars that set out with all golfers prepared to take on The Crystal Bay challenge. Well it probably seemed as if the day was on a downward spiral for one golfer, getting lost not ...
Stanley Rees on fire at Crystal Bay

At Greenwood on Wed Jun 13 S/Ford.
Seventeen golfers saddled up for the trip to attack yet another first class golf course.

EASTERN STAR- 11th of June 2018.STABLEFORD
“Alex Streets the Field!”
Well not that much to report as today’s field was not a very big one!
Either way we ventured out to Eastern Star to have a crack, cars were the mode of transport as we did not have enough to fill a bus. We have been getting mixed reports ...

12th June 2018 : Crystal Bay A & C Nines ( Stableford) It has been a bit wet of late so most of the Courses are suffering though it is true that some of them cope with the weather much better than others. It also seems that some of the Courses do not get as much of the rain as others, or appear not to. Why, I have ...
At St.Andrews 2000 on Wed Jun 6 S/ford
There’s No Stopping This Boy!
Colin Service is in red hot form at the moment, and today wore the Green Jacket yet again. He says he made a couple of “small” tweaks to his game and is reaping the benefits.
In 11 starts since May 9, he has had 4 wins, 3 ...

Patrick Devereux on fire at Plutaluang
On Tuesday 5th June we went to King’s Naga. Good to have him back in the group. Normally is the course in a reasonable condition, but today it was disappointing. Perhaps you cannot complain too much looking at the price, but we still we expect better. The weather was ...
GREENWOOD – 4th of June 2018 STABLEFORD.
Paul Smith Too Good for this Field.
It was not a big turnout but what we had were an eager bunch of golfers looking to have a hit on a decent course. The great course of Greenwood was our destination for the day. Weather was good, no sign of rain and a gentle breeze to keep ...
Tuesday the 5th June 2018 : Greenwood ( Stableford)
The test for the day was to be the A & C Nines, quite a tough test and throw into this the rain of late and the possibility of rain for the day and standing on the first tee we knew we were in for a tough time.
We went straight into ‘Lift, Clean and ...
At Treasure Hill on Mon Jun 4, 2018 S/ford
Truelove Takes The Treasure
It’s a love/hate relationship and some are non- committal. But when we have Treasure Hill on our schedule, we tend to draw a crowd.
Now is the “low” of Low season, but we still managed to have a very respectable field of ...

Playing in a swamp
On Monday 28nd May we went to Pleasant Valley 2 groups. The weather looked good and we looked forward to a nice game. Coming to the course we were almost shocked about the condition of the course. The course was so awful wet, that it was almost unplayable. But we played our round.
