Results – October 5, 2017

Another beautiful, partly cloudy day in Chiang Rai — perfect for golf!  We had some substantial rain over the last 24 hours, but it really did not affect the course, which remains in pretty good condition, with only a few sandy spots on the tees and a few slightly bumpy greens.

We had eight players today: six members and two friends (Robert and Will).  It was Bob Geldof’s birthday, sponsored by Leo, so for a change of pace we played our standard skins game from the white tees.  After the round, Leo bought us all lunch, and Graham and 5Points brought a couple of birthday cakes in honor of Bob Geldof and Leo, who shares a birthday with Bob — who knew?

SInce today was a Buddhist holiday and there are no liquor sales, Leo said he was going to stay home and watch cartoon movies.  Enjoy, Leo!  Happy Birthday!

Here are the results:


  • Winner:  Marc (40 points)
  • Runner Up:  Robert (39 points)

Closest to the pins:

  • Hole 3:  Will
  • Hole 7: Graham
  • Hole 12:  Bruce G
  • Hole 17:  Leo (who got a hole-in-one on this hole on this very day last year)
