Jomtien Golf with the IPGCMonday, August 25, Plutaluang – StablefordA small contingency were playing in Hua Hin this week so the numbers were down a bit for all our outings here at home.We normally alternate the four nines at Navy but upon booking a few months ago the management was not sure which nine would be closed, so we left it to our caddies to arrange the courses and upon arrival the East was shut and we were allocated the North and West nines, which everyone was happy about. Driving towards the course the clouds were looking threatening and after we had played six holes the skies opened with horrendous rain for 15 to 20 minutes.  When it had stopped we resumed playing without the need to adopt ‘pick, clean and place.’last_img read more
