Monday saw the society continue its low season golf odyssey at Laem Chabang and again found the course (B & C nines) in superb condition.
The forty-plus field teed off in twelve groups in hot and sultry conditions and good scores were at a premium for the three flights, cut at twelve and nineteen and a mere few managed to do better than net par on the day.
In the third flight, fourth place went to Paul Garvie with 27 points, one behind Len Jones’ 28 points. Runner up was Masaaki Sugaya with 32 points and the winner was his fellow countryman Masayuki Okada with 37 points.
In the second flight fourth place went to John Carling with 33 points, losing third to Kazunoyi Okamoto on countback. Second place went to Maurice Roberts with 35 points, twenty of which were recorded on the extremely tough C nine. The flight winner was Wayne Peppernell with an excellent 37 points.
In the top flight John Pierrel found himself in fourth place with 35 points, a couple behind Kevin McEntee and Pete Seil, with the latter taking second on countback. The best score of the day was reserved for Paul Smith whose gross 72 would have ranked in the top twenty a day earlier in the final round of the Singha Thai tournament on the same course.
Near pins went to Kevin Rogers (B5), Paul Smith (B8), Mick Alleyne (C5) and Pete Seil (C8) whilst the consolation brace went to Michael Olah for his best front nine of 21 points and Matt Cronin’s 17 points on the back nine.

Pattavia Century played host to our twenty seven avid golfers today and this course turned it on and the greens were just right – not too fast and not too slow.
Two thirds of the field scored 30 points or better, for a field average of 32 points and that average was helped by a magnificent 41 points from Pete Seil off his handicap of #6 (gross73).
Stuart Thompson’s nice steady round of 38 points saw him take second spot on a count-back from Masao Ishikawa, while Maurice Roberts had a credible 35 points to round out “A” flight.
Greg Proctor carded a big 40 points to relegate Colm O’Donovan to second place in “B” flight. Then there was a big gap to third placed Alan Walker with 31 points and Mike Tottenham in fourth with 30.
Four near pins went to Pete Seil (4), Simon Niven (7 and 17), and Bob Stokes (13).
Consolations best nine prizes went to Phil Davies (front, 19pts) and Wayne Peppernell (back, 19pts).
