Another perfect day for golf.   Overcast but no real threat of rain.   Unfortunately it was “Maintenance Monday” at the course.   The 6th hole fairway was being cored and sanded. They are only doing one or two fairways every week so the first couple will be back to normal soon.   Greens #10 to #14 were also cored and sanded with the final 4 holes expected to be done before the end of the day.

There were 5 Santiburi Members and 2 Friends (John and Judy).

Closest to the pins — #3 — no one,  #7 — 5Points (39′),  #12 — 5Points (15′),  #17 — Graham (30′)

The stableford was won the the newbie John with his 38 points.  Leo was second with 37 points blowing it with blobs on the last 2 holes.  The big money winner on the strength of his par 3 performance was 5Points who had the lowest stableford score.

Again it was hot and steamy at Santiburi.  The course is in good condition, with the greens and fairways near perfect.   They have started to cut the rough so the scores are better.
There were 4 Santiburi members today and 1 Friend (Will) playing the skins format.
Closest to the pins:  #3 — no one,  #7 — Leo did the walk of shame 3-putting from 25′ and blowing 4 skins in the process.  #12 — Graham (17′),  #17 — Leo (23′)
Graham was the big winner as he played a very steady round with 41 points picking up 4 skins on #9, 1 on #10 and 4 on #12.  Egbert playing his last round with us until October had another good round with 38 points.  5Points won 6 skins with his par on #18.
Santiburi Members and Friends meet every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.  Please be at the course by 8:15 AM.   All are welcome.

Another very hot morning.  There were 5 Santiburi Members — 4 competed in the skins.   5Points is away on a mission but Marc is back.  We were the only ones on the course and got around in four hours.   The handicaps are certainly up because the rough is still very difficult and costing everyone strokes.  The heat certainly wasn’t making it any easier either (37 degrees when we finished).

Closest to the pins #3-+ #7 – no one,  #12 — Leo (46′),  #17 — BruceG (6′).  The skins for the 3rd to 8th hole were pushed.  Egbert who had 6 points in the first 8 holes won the 9th with a bogey (for 3 pts).  9 points in 9 holes and 7 skins.   German efficiency for you.  He was the big money winner as he bogeyed the 14th to get the half with Leo’s par, bogeyed the 15th to get the half with Graham’s par and won the 16th with his bogey for 5 more skins.  Leo won the stableford with 31 points, BruceG was second with 29.

Again another great day for golf.   The maintenance guys were out before us but their work was not really noticeable.  The greens are still very fast and true.

There were 6 Santiburi Members today to bid farewell to Brian aka Juppy aka Jollydinger.   He will be back probably in November.  Due a little congestion on the first tee we started on the 10th.

Closest to the pins:  #12 — Leo,   #17 — Brian,  #3 — BruceG   #7 — no one.   It should be noted that BruceG was the closest to the pin on both #12 and #17 but did the “walk of shame” on both.

The stableford was won by Bruce K (who was sugar free today).  He was also the only money winner.   Brian came in 2nd.

Next rounds are the usual Thursday, Saturday and Monday.  Please be at the course by 8:15 AM.

Updated handicaps:    Brian up 1 to 24, BruceG up 1 to 6, 5Points up 1 to 26   The handicaps are up probably due to the deep rough making it a little more difficult this past 2 weeks.

Today was the day following the conclusion of the Singha Masters, and All-Thailand Tour professional golf tournament held annually at Santiburi Golf Club.  The course management had been preparing the course all year for this tournament, and the course conditions were the best we have seen in a long time.  That said, the rough was much longer than normal (especially around the sand traps), the greens were fast, and the course played much more difficult than usual.

 Because of the great, pro-level conditions, we sent out wider invitations and encouraged many from the greater Chiang Rai golf community to join us.  We had a great turnout, with nine members (5Points, Leo, Graham, Les, Merv, Peter, Bruce G, Bruce K, and Brian) and six friends (Rob, John F., Mark W., Rodney, Ross F., and Scott).  Since we had 14 or more playing, we decided to separate into two flights, with eight low handicappers competing against each other, and the seven higher handicappers facing off among themselves.  All players competed together for the closest-to-the-pin prizes on each par-3 hole.

 Closest to the pins:  #3 — Leo,  #7 — BruceG,  #12 — Peter,  #17 John F

 The high handicap stableford winner with the best score of the 2 groups was Brian with 38 points.  Merv and BruceK split the 2nd money with 35 points each.   The low handicap winners were BruceG and JohnF each with 35 points.  The biggest money winner with 7 skins and a profit of 380 baht was JohnF.

It was much cooler than the past couple weeks.  There had been a bit of rain around 4 am which cleared the air somewhat.  The course is in great condition with near perfect greens and fairways with a lot of roll.   The rough is a different story.   The balls are getting harder to find and hacking out of the rough can in some cases be a real challenge.

There were 7 Members and 1 Friend —  Colin

Closest to the pins —  #3 — BruceG (55′),  #7 — 5Points,  #12 — Brian (15′),  #17 — Leo (10′) .   BruceG did the walk of shame on the 7th.

Leo won the stableford with 40 points (only one par for the day but 4 birdies).  BruceG gave himself a good talking to after his 24 points on Saturday and managed to come 2nd today with 39 points. Leo was the big money winner with 7.5 skins and a 350 baht profit — and a handicap cut of 2 strokes.

Next rounds at Santiburi:     Thursday (30th), Saturday (1st), Monday (3rd) — Please be at the course by 8:15 AM.

Chiang Rai Golfers are at Waterford:  Tuesday and Thursday @ 8:30.

Les had us over to his place for his birthday.  There was plenty of food and beer and everyone had a good time.

5Points has decided it would be better if the Community Cup were later in the year when more of the members are in town.

Due to the Bernie Memorial Tournament on Sunday, March 12th (9 AM)  we aren’t playing on Monday but will on Tuesday (14th) — Please be at the course by 9:15 AM.   On Thursday (16th) — Please be at the course by 8:15 AM.   Saturday (18th) — the course is closed for a tournament.

Today after golf, Darryl hosted a (burgers and beer) barbeque at his home.  All the Members (and a few wives) had a great time even the guy who rarely drinks beer did.

There were 9 Santiburi Members and 1 Friend (John U).  There were 2 groups of old Thai guys starting just ahead of us so we started on the 10th.

Closest to the pins:  #3–Peter,  #7 — Peter,  #12 — Jockey,   #17 — Graham

The stableford was won by Peter with 42 points.  Brian and Jockey shared 2nd with 40 points.  Peter won the most skins (12) for a 830 baht.   Most of that came from winning the first with a birdie — 6 skins — good thing for him we started on the 10th.

A reminder to all that the Bernie Memorial Tournament on Sunday is open to the entire Chiang Rai golfing community.   Those that knew Bernie and those that are organizing the competition appreciate your support.
