Lanna sports day attracts a few people!

We went early on Friday to avoid the rush. Arrived at the par 3 tee off at 6.20am,still dark!

There was already a 2 ball and a four ball in front of us so we actually teed off in relative light.

The four ball in front of us were Japanese and they were almost as quick as us,a 2 ball,very little waiting on the tees.Thank goodness they weren’t Korean-maybe you know what I mean.

We completed the first 9 holes just after 8 am and moved to the racecourse course.There were already a few waiting to tee off,did I say a few,see the pics!

It was just crazy,30+ people waiting to tee off. We guessed it would be 30 to 45 minutes before we drove off!

Fortunately a Japanese couple were ahead of us in the queue which was mainly groups of 4 or 5 and we were asked to join them.Very nice people and spoke good English so communication was no problem.
So we played with Tanaka san and Tanaka san (Hope I got that right Mr & Mrs Tanaka?)

Mr Tanaka is in the picture of the tee along with my golf partner (an aged Brit (-:) and a few others.(sorry about the light,used a cameraphone to take the pics.)

Great company but it was a real chore playing at snails pace with groups of 4 and 5 ahead 10 mins wait at most tees.Not something I will want to repeat in the near future.

Roll on the low season!
