January Diana Seniors and Lady’s Open
The first Diana Senior and Ladies Open for the year had 40 players at Pattaya Country Club on Thursday January 27th. It was another International field with a large Irish contingent. In the winners enclosure there were 5 nations represented.
All arrived well in time for an efficient and friendly check-in and away on time on what was a busy day. The course was in good condition and credit goes to the recently appointed new green keeper.
January winners Chant (Moon) Schwulera, left, and Tom Bryne, center, with Pattaya Country Club ‘boss’ Jenny.
Back in the clubhouse – currently being worked on – it was time for the presentation, 30 minutes after the last group came in, and thanks to Alan Pearce who had checked all the cards and calculated the results.
Just 6 ladies today and the best score of the day came from Chant Schwulera (Moon) (h/cap 11) with a fine 40 points. Runner-up with 31 points was Theresa Connolly (26).
One of our Irish friends Tom Bryne (14) was the Seniors winner with 36 points and the runner-up, just a point behind, was Kale Karlberg (13) with 35.
It was count-back to decided the Super Seniors with regular Diana player Chris John (22) beating Rich Murphy (23) both with 38 points.
Chris had to leave before the ‘photo shoot’ so to make up for his absence was Pattaya Country Club ‘boss’ Jenny – who was celebrating her birthday.
All scores are submitted to Pattaya Sports Club.
Near pin prizes were picked up by Chant Schwulera (#5), Tom Byne (#12) and Kale Karlberg (#16).
The next Diana Seniors and Ladies open is on Thursday 24th February at Pattaya Country Club with a tee time of 0900.
Sign-up sheets are at Diana Green Bottle on 2nd road and the Diana Driving range.
