Jomtien Golf with the I.P.G.C.
Monday 8th August 8, The Emerald – Stableford
As we arrive here the course is deserted and we tee off 30 minutes before our 10 a.m. schedule, there are many dark clouds all around the course and we are all wondering what to expect today weather-wise. The clouds disperse over the front nine holes and an enjoyable round was enjoyed by all.
There are two divisions out today with the cut in division 1 at 7-15 and division 2 at 16 plus. The greens here have improved since our last visit three weeks ago and the best score of the day is 39 points winning division 1 for Paul Butler. Neville Scurrell is second one point behind beating Peter Masters on a 21/20 back nine count back.
Bangpra winner with 37 points Harry Vincenzi.
Rod Howett wins division 2 with 33 points and Brian Ferringo is second on 31.
Neville is in the picture again with the only two in division 1 with a birdie on the 15th, one rollover plus today’s go to Bangpra on Wednesday in division 2.
Wednesday, August 10, Bangpra – Stableford
There are a few spots of rain as we tee off but this lasts only for the first two holes and as the first group approaches the last tee it starts again but this is not a problem.
With numbers still diminishing each week with vacations back to their home countries there is only one division out today. Harry Vincenzi wins with 37 points with Chris Voller in second place with 32 and third is (Mr Happy) Bryan Rought with 31.
Chris Voller birdies the 8th to win the division 1 prize and there are now three rollovers in division 2 to Plutaluang next Monday.
