Results — Sat Jan 27

Another picture postcard day in Chiang Rai, perfect golfing conditions only marred by a very overwatered course and many sandy patches.  The conditions are due to Santiburi trying to get the course ready for the Singha Masters, as a result a discussion was held and the general agreement was that from now till further advice “Lift clean and place rule on the fairways.”   If your ball is in the rough and covered in mud  or on bare patches,  use common sense, if unsure of what to do ask fellow players.
Many thanks to Jim  for hosting a Australian sausage sizzle to celebrate Australia Day after golf.   Well done, good food, cold beer, what more could you want!
