It has been a long time since The Links has played Silky Oaks but on Friday we took 20 players to play the revamped course.

Unfortunately, the rain that has plagued us in recent weeks was to play a deciding factor in the proceedings. Bright sunshine greeted the players on arrival and all set off with the weather fair. Two hours later, 2 of the 5 groups had returned to the club house followed soon after by another two groups. Two of the 20 players decided to wait it out but with the course virtually unplayable, they too returned to the club house.

Credit should be given to the management at Rayong Green Valley complex for giving the players rain check vouchers even although most of the groups had reached the turn.
