Finally for those of you who are having trouble finding our contact numbers etc.
Many of you will be aware by now that Truevision lost the 2013/14 Premier League coverage to a company known as CTH; however the games can still be seen at the Outback on Astro in full HD. Golf continues to be shown, also in HD, courtesy of Truevision and most of the live Rugby League and Union can be seen in HD, courtesy of Astro or Truevision. In some cases, when there are two games on live at the same time, we can also offer Setanta Plus if necessary.
The Outback has two Truevision boxes and an Astro box as well as Banglamung cable tv, which shows Aussie Network [for Aussie Rules] and also some Championship UK football via GMM. We have also recently added 365Sport TV and ThaiExpat TV which give us other alternatives, even when the satellite broadcasts fail due to rain and storms. For example you can now watch Match of the Day and the Football League at Sunday lunchtime.
With five HD TV screens and the HDMI Matrix, we can show any broadcast sport on any screen and we are also able to show live cricket on Sky Sports if required. We can show most live sports, particularly NFL & Rugby Union, AFL, Golf, Formula 1 and MotoGP, most of which are now in High Definition which looks absolutely amazing on our 55 inch main TV screen.
The Outback runs two minibuses; one a Toyota Granvia, which is a very comfortable six or seven seater and the other the larger Toyota Commuter, which can seat upto fifteen but with golf clubs, usually around eight or nine. Our friendly local driver Dah, will look after you on your journeys with us as well as help you with your clubs and hired clubs if required.
We will continue to have a central pickup point in town which will be at Mike's Shopping Mall on Second road. The bus will normally be there around 7.30am and will depart for the bar at 7.45am. Groups of three persons or more can still arrange to be collected from your hotel :- Mon, Weds & Fridays. Other days by arrangement.

After a meeting of PSC handicap committee on Sat 26th May 2012, the use of "Drop Zones" on all courses was banned, after a one year trial period. There are three exceptions; the first hole at Green Valley, A1 at Laem Chabang and the 14th at Pleasant Valley, which is an environmental protection area. The rules also governing yellow staked greens have been underlined. The revised PSC local rules are published below.
Your handicap card, shows your last 20 scores; the 10 marked with an asterisk are your counting scores. The score on the top left corner is your most recent and in the bottom right corner, your oldest.
Each time a score is submitted, the oldest one drops off. If there is a lower score without an asterisk, it will be on an easier rated course, that is why it is non- counting, to work out the exact differential, study the example below.
