Message from Mark regarding the next Chiang Rai/Chiang Mai Challenge Cup.
The next Chiang Mai/Chiang Rai challenge has been booked for 900 AM on the 10th October at Santiburi golf course and at Happy city on the 11th October at 900 AM. The cost at Happy City will be 1200 baht with cart with 200 baht going into a buffet at the end of the game.
If for any reason the times are not suitable please let me know. Hope to see everyone there.
The day at Santiburi started off with a light sprinkling of rain, which was enough to send Leo and Graham running for cover. It is rumored they decided to go shopping in town for pink pussy hats, instead of playing golf. That left French Marc, 5Points and Bruce G. The three decided to play a 50-baht Nassau.
Bruce heated up fast enough to drive off the rain by the time the group reached the fourth hole, and the rest of the day was beautiful for golf. The front nine fairways have been cored, with the 1st thru 5th holes nearly back to normal condition. The 6th, 7th, and 8th holes are still in GUR status, and the 9th hole will probably be completed by the end of this week. All 9 of the back nine greens have been cored and sanded, but they have recovered quickly and the effects are not very noticeable.
As stated, Bruce heated up fast, and he never looked back. He birdied the first hole and shot Even Par 36 on the front, for 22 points and the first nine honors. Never to be outdone, even by himself, he shot one under 35 on the back, for another 22 points, to win the back nine and the overall.
Next rounds: Santiburi Members and Friends: Monday, Thursday, Saturday — Please be at the course by 8:15 AM.
Chiang Rai Golfers — Sunday Happy City 8 AM, Tuesday Waterford 8:30 AM.
