Just like Bastille Day, J.C Lhoste Storms to the front!

Treasure Hill

Another perfect sultry day greeted us, and with an easier than normal bus trip, we teed up off the yellow markers before scheduled time. Probably the first time that we have witnessed Treasure Hill a little on the dry side. Still playing at a very good price this course is still worth the journey.

Once again, our compliments are extended to the management of Treasure Hill GC who oversee a fantastic course and have made it available until the end of August at the very good rate of 1,050 baht including g/f, caddie and cart. Well done indeed!

With a small field we played one flight only with J.C Lhoste playing to win his first game at the Swan. His 36 points (with 20 from the back 9) gave him the nod (via the countback system) from Mike Johns. Another countback separated 3rd and 4th with Alex Field getting the nod over Sal Brizzi.
