Please see the Canada Cup Announcement at the bottom of this post.
There were five members playing today. The course has continued to receive considerable rain, and the bunkers remain compromised to the point that the players agreed to consider all bunkers “Ground Under Repair”, with a free drop outside the bunker. We also played “Lift, clean and place in the fairway”. The lakes are very high, to the point that hole 2 and hole 4 lakeside bunkers were actually part of the new, much larger lake. Still, the fairways remained generally firm. We played our normal skins game.
Here are today’s results:
Canada Cup: July 24, 2017, Santiburi Golf Course, be at the course by 8:15 AM
We wish to remind all that the Canada Cup (which is by invitation only) is not a Santiburi Members and Friends event. However, it is our understanding that those who were not invited will be allowed to compete if they were to show up. The Canada Cup organizers believes that anyone who shows up for a round of golf should never be told “You can’t play”. An email from the organizers will be going out later today to those that signed up.
As many are aware Leo walked off the golf course in pain 2 weeks ago. He informed us today that he will be putting his membership up for sale next week as he is not sure when or even if he will be able to play again. He will be auctioning off his membership which expires a year from now. Leo will continue to do the handicaps for the members as long as the members want him to do it. The blog entries with the results will usually be done by 5Points.
Santiburi Members and Friends plays every Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Please be at the golf course by 8:15 AM. All are always welcome.
