Greenwood was the choice for this, the 146th PSC monthly tournament on Wednesday, Oct. 14, with the A & B nines the chosen combination and we ended up with a good field of 85.  The course was presented in an excellent condition and freshly mowed, although some greens were recently cored (got to do it sometime) but with a great price of 600 baht it was great value.

PSC Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts, together with Peter Blackburn, Dick Warberg, Andre Van Dyk and Mark West (on crutches after his recent knee surgery) were at the course bright and early to prepare for the players arrival, together with the Greenwood staff who were on hand and extremely helpful.

On this occasion the A Flight played medal off the white tees, B Flight played stableford off the whites, C Flight also played stableford but off the yellows, and the Ladies/Seniors flight played stableford off the red & silver tees.

The Low Gross winner on the day was Mike Allidi (H/cap 3) who carded a 76 gross.  A Flight, honours went to Jan Strom (13) with a net 72, B Flight was won by Gabriel Enright (19) with 41 points, C Flight top spot went to Kenny Chung (25) on 43 points and in the Ladies/Seniors Flight it was Churairat Srinual (27) who was declared the winner after scoring 37 points.

The presentation and prize giving was this time held at Lewiinskis Bar & Restaurant and the food was terrific and plenty of it.  Many thanks goes to Jim, Peter, Lou and staff for an excellent buffet.

Time for the presentation and Peter Blackburn welcomed all and introduced Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts who expressed his appreciation to the day’s players and those who assisted him at the course, and also to the PSC office staff for their pre-tournament work.  Maurice did point out once again that it was necessary to have both players & markers scores on the scorecard and also asked that golfers playing stableford would help the scorers greatly if they put their points on the scorecard in addition to their stroke scores.

Maurice thanked Toon for once again assisting on the night and also Tom Herrington who took the winner’s photos.

Peter then announced the winners in order and Maurice, Dick & Andre presented the prizes.
