Number of rounds played by Santiburi Members and Friends:
Jan 1 – June 30, 2016 : 507 Jan 1 – June 30, 2017 : 520
6 Santiburi Members and 3 Friends (Jim, Robert, Will) showed up today. Jim and Robert’s visit with us came to an end and we don’t expect to see them again until December.
It was another day of overcast skies with no real threat of rain. The sun did come out and warm things up during mid round. Once again we played from the white tees and the master of the white tees, 5Points, had his “A” game again today (42 points). Unfortunately for him Jim came up with his best game since January 2016 and had 43 points. That was over 12 strokes better than each of his previous 3 rounds this trip. Well done to both.
Closest to the pins: #3 — BruceG, #7 (a measurement was required) Jim 221″ narrowly beat Leo at 223″. However Jim 3-putted and did the walk of shame handing the skin to Leo. #12 — Again it was close. BruceG playing the first group was on the green. Leo playing in the second group hit the ball right at BruceG’s marker and it rolled at most 2″ past it. Another lucky win for Leo. #17 — BruceG — very close to the pin about 4′.
Santiburi Members and Friends meet on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Please be at the course by 8:15 AM. Blue tees this Saturday — then we will really see if 5Points has got it together. Our friends are reminded that the green fee + caddie fee every day during the month of July is only 1300 baht.
Chiang Rai Golfers play on Sunday — Contact Rob for details. They will be at Waterford on Tuesday 8:30 AM.
