Today opened with rain, and the rain (moderately heavy at times) persisted through hole 9, but after that it stopped and remained dray and overcast for the rest of the day. The course has sustained a large amount of rain over the past few days and weeks, and remains in incredibly good condition. The primary effects are soft ground areas and bunker that have standing water and erosion. 5Points and Bruce G each lost a ball in a standing water in a bunker today. Apart from that, the course is in great condition. We played lift, clean and place on the fairways, and it really wasn’t needed much.
Three intrepid members (5Points, Bruce G, and Steve) showed up today. They played 100 baht for the best stableford score, from the white tees. Bruce G won by shooting his handicap. 5Points shot his handicap on the back but was unable to equal the feat on the front.
Steve kindly bought lunch for 5Points and Bruce G, having run into a bit of luck at the track in Hong Kong! For all you folks who could not brave the rain, the food was delicious! Thanks, Steve!
