An overcast sky and a light breeze made it a great day for golf. The fairways are healing nicely and the greens are good. For the month of July the green fee at Santiburi is 1000 baht + 300 baht caddie fee every day including weekends.
There were 6 Santiburi Members and 2 Friends (Jim and his friend, Robert) for another white tee competition. For the first time a closest to the pin competition had to be split. We had to pull out the measuring tape and found that both 5Points and BruceG were 239 inches from hole #7. As usual BruceG was dominant on the par 3’s winning the 12th and 17th as well. Leo had won the 3rd. 5Points won the stableford and the most money with 42 points (gross 92). It was his best round since March when he had a 90 also in a white tee competition. Much to Jim’s surprise it wasn’t another “donation day” and he will be leaving town in a few days with 190 baht of our money.
Santiburi Members and Friends play every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Please be at the golf course by 8:15 AM.
Chiang Rai Golfers are at Waterford tomorrow and Thursday at Happy City. Both days 8:30 AM.
Handicap changes: BruceG down 1 to 6, Leo down 1 to 17, Graham up 1 to 22, Les up 1 to 34, Marc up 1 to 22, Steve up 1 to 35.
