Tuesday, Feb. 13, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford

On Tuesday we went with 3 groups to Pattaya Country Club.  It was a beautiful sunny day with a nice breeze that kept things cool. The course was in good condition, but putting was not easy.

Dave Smith was in very good form and won the day with 43 stableford points.  It was a battle between Bob Edwards and Willem Lasonder for second and on a last hole count-back Willem beat Bob after they both scored40 points overall.

The near pins went to Jonathan Pratt, Allan Wilson and Dave Smith (2).

Thursday, Feb. 15, Crystal Bay – Stableford

Crystal Bay was our venue for Thursday and we went there with 4 groups and played the C & B course which was in quite good shape with just a few wet spots on the fairways.  Notable was the difference in the greens on the front and back nine, the greens on the B-course being much faster.

Bob Edwards showed good form on Tuesday and he stayed consistent for the win today with 38 points.  In second was Paul Davies with 37 points and thereafter we had 5 players with 35; Sam Gettinby beating Jonathan Pratt on the count back for third.

The near pins were claimed by Neil Harvey, Alex Everden, Steve Shiner and Sam Gettinby.
