The Growling Swan Golf SocietyMonday, Nov. 28, Treasure Hill – Stableford1sr John Anderson (29) 38pts2nd JC Lhoste (28) 32pts 3rd Roger Rees (12) 32ptsNear Pins: #2 Bill Steinmann, #6 Mashi Kaneta, #13 Sal Brizzi, #17 Alex Field.Long Putts: #9 Roger Rees, #18 John AndersonJohn Anderson (left) with Eric Black.After a great turnout of about 30 players for the Monthly Mug on the previous Thursday, it was a little disappointing and just amazing that we could muster only 13 players on this day. Many golf bars have been praising the presentation and the well-documented price of 1150 baht all in for Treasure Hill. Oh well, for us who played, we had yet another great day of golf.As mentioned, the course was in magnificent condition and our first group, a three-ball, got away 30 minutes early. We came up behind a 2-ball, who were behind a 4-ball and stayed in that order all game and finished in 3 and a half hours. Well done to them and us!Only one flight today, scores were low, as we normally expect at Treasure Hill, and only one player bettered his handicap. John Anderson was that man as he took the win with a fine 38 points, six clear of JC Lhoste and Roger Rees in second and third respectively.Thursday, Dec. 1, Plutaluang – Stableford1st Frank Riley (21) 39pts2nd Roger Ellis (28) 38pts3rd J.C Lhoste (28) 37pts4th Glenn Henriksen (9) 36ptsNear Pins: #3 Glenn Henriksen, #6 John Edwards, #12 Peter Grey, #17 John Edwards.Long Putts: #9 Tony Cook, #18 Fred Dineley.A relatively low number of seventeen golfers ventured out to play the Navy Course on Thursday. We requested and played North & West nines, this of courses meant we played the signature ‘Lighthouse’ hole. Why do we do these things?Conditions were perfect with a slight breeze, a little bit of cloud cover and no sign of rain. We tackled the course from yellow tees which turned out to be long enough for our golfers on the day.The course was in great condition and set out perfectly. The greens were sharp, the fairways had run and we are pleased to inform that the water holes were not too bad, other than the aforementioned Lighthouse hole which swallowed up 6 balls from our group.Frank Riley, who is going through a purple patch, came up trumps yet again with a very good 39 points to take the win. Coming in second was Colin Steilow’s replacement Roger Ellis, with JC Lhoste taking third spot (including a great eagle on a par 4) and Glenn Henriksen filling the final spot on the podium.
