Monday, March 12, Green Valley (white tees) – Stableford

1st Peter LeNoury 43pts

2nd Alan Rothwell 41pts

3rd Marco Watkins 40pts

4th J.P. Thomas 39pts

5th Nat Meesuk 37pts

The headline should read “Tommy Balch wins!” as our buddy Tom finally saw a return on his investment with a Caddy Smile near pin. It has been a long time since Tom gained from the collection plate and good to see his perseverance pay off.

Back to the Stableford comp, a crowded podium with 5 places up for grabs saw recently retired Nat Meesuk (yes, that’s our former manageress) make a comeback with a 37 point card for fifth.  We had eight groups out, and on top of the heap, stalwart Peter LeNoury had a massive 43 for a decisive victory here today. Nice shootin’ Pete!

Tuesday, March 13, Khao Kheow (white tees) – Stableford

2nd Kenny Aihara 36pts

T-3rd Jimmy Brackett 32pts

T-3rd Nick Fazakerley 32pts

Front nine, hot and no wind.  Back nine, overcast and breezy so a tough slog on the front ended up to be a beautiful day at Khao Kheow.  The course was in great shape save for minor construction on a few of the tee boxes where they are putting in new stairs and seating for our benefit.  A temporary inconvenience for a permanent improvement!

There were elephants trumpeting in the background on the B course where there is a camp near the Open Zoo.  Not too many golf courses have that as a feature!

Jimmy, Nick and myself scraped together 32 points for a third place tie with Doc Beard besting us all with 37 on the card.
