The previous day, April 1, young Patrick Browne tried his hardest to con most of us with a couple of his April Fools gags.  Well he may not have succeeded in that ploy but he gained his revenge today with the only subpar score.  He carded 38 points to win the Ann’s Salon voucher plus the usual first prize. 

In second place was Stuart Gordon, thanks mainly to his superb short game (we won’t mention some of the other shots), with 34 points, and with the same score but a better back nine from our benefactor today was Richard Baldwin (his lady donates the salon voucher).

Near pin prizes were awarded to Richard Baldwin, Jim Neilson, Goort Gelten &Peter Harris (as a lucky draw).  Other lucky draw prizes (donated by our hosts The Relax Bar) went to John Bartley and the scribe; both of these were a travesty really as both John and myself carded the worst scores of the day.

Although the weather is getting hot and sometimes humid we are graced most of the time at Phoenix with a nice sea breeze coming in from the ocean, which makes the temperatures a little more bearable.  Nevertheless, the first couple of drinks back at The Relax Bar are always downed quite quickly.

We are now playing every Tuesday and Friday at approximately 11.30 a.m. and non members can enjoy a walk-in fee of 800 baht on a Tuesday and 1,000 baht on a Friday.

Sea fishing is also one of our pastimes and anyone interested in either golf or fishing can contact me (Mike) on 087 091 7565 for further information.
