Fun Golf 2009 With Pcec And Rabbi's Elephant Bar

Recommended Posts

A group of like minded golfers meet once a week (Tuesdays) at 8am for breakfast at at Rabbi's Elephant Bar, Soi Boukeau and Soi 21. Then @ 8:45 we carpool to Plutaluong Navy Course (challenging 36 hole course) for a fun day of golf. No reservations, No Handicaps, no betting, just go out and play a fun game of Bingo Bango Bongo. Nobody will ask you what you shot on that last hole because 'honors' goes to the first one who tees up. In US we call it 'ready golf'.

There are no 2's, closest to the pin, or longest drives that might embarrass the average golfer. If you are used to shooting 120 or 80 this is the place to come out and enjoy amateur golf with a bunch of fun loving guys who like to laugh and have fun. We play a format called 'Bingo, Bango, Bongo'. Each group only competes with their own group, 3 points per hole, thus Bingo, Bango, Bongo, Bingo point goes to the first one on the green from the farthest away from the green. Bango point goes to whichever golfer is closest to the pin once everyone is on the green. Bongo point goes to whoever makes the longest putt. (Don’t try to learn the rules, someone in your group that knows the rules will keep score)

It does not matter how many strokes it took you to reach the green, nor, how many putts it took you to sink the longest putt, you still will win the point. We do have a few variations to the Standard PGA rules and most standard rules are ignored.

Examples. (*with no penalty)** only penalty is, you cannot win a Bingo point with that shot

*Lift, clean and place within 12' allowed anywhere (no penalty).

*Local rules of the course apply.

** Mulligan (tee up and hit again) allowed on every hole only if 1 of these apply.

1. If it didn't go past the ladies tee.

2. It went into the water.

3. It went into the deep rough.

4. It went OB

** you are allowed to pick up your ball at anytime and move it to where you wish it had landed but didn’t.

** If you put the ball in the water and don’t want to waste another ball OK to drop on other side of the water.

** If you are in a sand trap with a high lip and you are having a difficult time getting out, it is OK to pick it up and throw it out if you want.

There are a few more slight variations to the rules but someone in your group will know the variations and keep the score. The best way to find out is to come out and join us. Remember the purpose of this group is to have fun, get some sun and exercise. It is not to learn the rules of golf or to embarrass anyone because of their stroke count.

Some of our recent winners

For more information call Hawaii Bob @0878296824 or PM or just show up at Rabbi's Elephant bar. No reservations required, transportation available for B200 r/t club rental B300 at course.

We play Plutaluong golf course every week because it has 36 challenging holes, we can always get on without reservations and it is among the least expensive courses around Pattaya

Last weeks winners. Congratulations to to John S. he has been playing with us since we started 8 months ago, never winning his group, until last week. He attributes it to the fact that unlike previous weeks he did not 7 putt 1 time in 18 holes. Well done John (far right in photo)

Yesterday's winners. The largest group of players we have ever had. 5 groups of 3 and 4 ball and most groups had 3 possible winners going into the last hole so fun/exciting finishes. Everybody had a great time and unless they were not going to be in town next week would return and play again. Don't forget we have a free tournament on Friday the 30th of January.

Last week's winners and the wait staff who wanted in on the pictures. The restaurant has new management and new menu and staff. The cook is a major improvement although I thought the last one was good until I tried some of the items from the new chef. Come join us every Tuesday for inexpensive and fun day of golf.

We moved again, Foodland has plenty of parking but not enough stools at the counter for all of us to eat at same time so now we will meet at B99 on Soi Diana Inn in Renaissance Hotel. At 8am parking should be easy. For B99 you get all you want to eat eggs, omelets, ham, bacon, sausage, pancakes, French toast. You must buy a drink for 20-40 Baht but everything is cooked to order.

We still meet every Tuesday and golf at Plutoluong with a tee off time of 9:45. Only exceptions are holidays because we don't want to pay the exorbitant rates. I have not updated photo's in quite some time and want to catch up. Posted are photos of some winners who did not get the recognition they deserve, my apologies to all.

If you want to have fun playing golf let me know if you need transport from B99 or meet us at the course.

We met for the first time at Bobby's "eat a lot for 99 Baht" All you can eat restaurant, every one was happy but one person, he never eats breakfast so only has tea and toast, previously cost him b45 at Foodland now B134 at Bobby's but the rest of us made up for his loss.

This week's winners with special congratulations to Dani Z who played his first round of golf with us last week, went to driving range for first time for 1 hour then came out and played again with our group and place 2nd in his grouping. Those of you who worry about your lack of golfing skills should come join us, it is not embarrassing but fun.
