Plutaluang (Big Navy)
It was 14 golfers that set out to take on the challenge of Plutaluang, or as we know it Big Navy. The course was in good nick with the greens being a little on the slow side for the first hour, but as soon as the sun was out the greens did an about face. There was a threat of rain but that passed as quick as it arrived.
With a small field we played all the novelties and only the one division with three placings. Dave Maw, a little slow to start this campaign, showed he was out for business. Dave finished the day with a very good 39 points six clear of his opposition. Second past the post was JC Lhoste my god the man is having a purple patch! He just keeps greeting the judges with good scores. Third went to the count back with Glenn Smith getting the nod over Keith Buchanan, Keith has lost a few in recent times via the count back! At least mate you are there about.
