Last Chance to sign up for the Mae Moh trip (Feb 7-8)!  Please contact Leo via basilpuppydog@hotmail.com by Sunday, Feb 4 if you are joining us (additional information, see link, below).

A cool, overcast day.  We have been playing lift, clean and place on the fairways because the course remains in wet conditions with thin grass on the fairways and sandy lies throughout.  Not bad overall, but not pristine like we’d like to see it.

We had nine participants today (all members), although only seven played in our normal skins game — Egbert and Doc played for fun and exercise.  All played from the blue tees except Darryl, who played from the white tees.  We welcomed back Peter, who has been traveling the world outside Chiang Rai.

Darryl once again played great golf and took the top stableford prize, with Brian garnering the runner-up prize.

Here are the results:

Stableford:

  • Winner:  Darryl (41 points)
  • Runner-Up:  Brian (38 points)

Closest-to-the-pins:

  • Hole 3:  No One
  • Hole 7:  Peter (it is rumored that Graham did the walk of shame)

Another beautiful late winter day at Santiburi, with clear, sunny, dry weather and moderate temps.  The course is in fairly good condition, although the comparatively thin grass and the overwatering and oversanding has led us to play lift, clean and place in the fairways.  The greens have recently been sanded, which made them very fast today.

We had eleven participants today, including Doc (who did not join in the skins):  10 members and one friend, Jesse (a long-time former Chiang Rai resident who is visiting from Pattaya).  We played our normal skins game from the blue tees (Darryl played from the white tees, and Young played from the red tees).

Jesse and Brian dueled for the Stableford prize, leaving the rest of the field in their wake.  Jesse was especially accurate on the par-3 holes, winning two of the four closest-to-the-pin prizes.  Perennial dart-thrower Bruce G won one, and Brian won one too.

Here are the results:

Stableford:

  • Winnner:  Jesse (42 Points)
  • Runner-Up:  Brian (41 Points)

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!
Now to the golf, we had 12 players , 11 members plus Jim.   We decided to play ” super 6 “

  • Tuesday, January 30, Waterford, 9 am.  Annual Trophy Tournament.

Results: Thursday, January 25, 2018

A beautiful, moderately cool day for golf.  The course is in fairly good condition, although the fairways are thin in many places, and the number of sand-filled divots is increasing — let’s face it, this high season the course is getting a lot of play.

We had eight participants, seven of whom played in the skins game (Doc opted out as usual):  seven members and one new friend, Wolfgang (Zeppe) from Germany.  Zeppe sported a 5 handicap, and nearly played to it, shooting 31 points.  He took three of the four closest-to-the-pin prizes — not surprising for a low handicapper (Ahem, Bruce G!)

However, the man of the day was Steve, who slaughtered the field by posting 43 stableford points, nine more than his closest competitor, Graham (34).  He also took the lion’s share of the skins, with 9.5.

Here are the results:

Stableford:

  • Winner:  Steve (42)
  • Runner Up:  Graham (34)

Closest to the Pins:

  • Hole 3:  Zeppe
  • Hole 7:  5Points
  • Hole 12:  Zeppe
  • Hole 17 Zeppe (both Egbert and Graham did the Walk of Shame)

It was another perfect day for golf.   Today we had 8 members members including Steve who has returned and 1 friend, Jim, who is also back for a while.   The skins computer battery went dead before the results were announced and those that participated today will have to settle up next time.

Brian won the stableford (for the 3rd time in a row) only this time he had to share it with Leo.  Both with 38 points.

Finally a golf video that properly explains the golf swing.   Disclaimer — Watching golf videos can screw up your game.   The writer as well as the management of this blog do not accept any responsibility if it should happen to you.

Where is BruceG you ask?   BruceG is in India.   It seems they have heard about his deluxe weather app and have offered him millions of rupees for it.   There is great demand for the app because they need to know if it is a good day to take out their flying carpets.

I was just reminded that we did play golf today.   Perfect weather for golf.

Today we had 6 members members including Doc.  Unlike Thursday when the blue tees were waaaay waaaay back today they were as forward as possible.   There was very little difference between the blues and whites.   Hence the better scores.

Brian won the stableford (again).   This time with 42 points.   Marc also had a good day finishing second.

Omitted in error from last Monday’s report — Andrew is the latest member of the 5 Points Club with a birdie on the 6th hole.   While on this subject, Brian got 5 points today on the 8th hole.

It was a lot warmer on the first tee today.  The course wasn’t quite as busy and our groups of 3 got around in well under 4 hours.    The blue tees were waaaay waaay back.

Today we had 8 members members including Doc and a Thai tag-along who did not participate in the skins game.

Brian with a 5 pointer and a 4 pointer won the stableford with 38 points.   It appears the added yardage to the course didn’t affect him.   Darryl playing off the whites had a great day winning ha-ha-ha baht.   He kindly donated some of his earnings to the beer pool.

Closest to the pins:

  • Hole 3:  Darryl
  • Hole 7:   no one — Darryl did the Walk of Shame
  • Hole 12:  Darryl
  • Hole 17:  Darryl (nearly a hole in one) .  Paul did the walk of shame in the group ahead of Darryl.

It was a bit chilly on the first tee today but it warmed up nicely.   Hopefully the cold snap is gone for good.   There were a few greens that were lightly sanded as the greenskeeper is trying to get the mould out.

Today we had ten members including Doc who did not participate in the skins game.

BruceG started slowly today with 6 points on the first 6 holes.  Then his game mysteriously came back and he was as sharp as ever getting 4 birdies.  Graham was the stableford winner with 39 points.   Marc, Young and BruceG were joint second.
