Banks back with a bang


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort Pattaya

Tuesday, April 26, Khao Kheow – Stableford

On Tuesday we went to Khao Keow and the course was as usual in perfect condition although you could see that the lakes were suffering from the drought.  It was quiet on the course which meant no hold-ups and an enjoyable game.

Willem Lasonder (H/cap 17) took the win today with 35 stableford points while Sam Gettinby (24) was second with 31 after beating Neil Harvey (15) on the count back.

The near pin awards went to Willem Lasonder (twice), Jonathan Pratt and Neil Harvey.

Thursday, April 28, Green Valley – Stableford

Green Valley was the venue on Thursday and it was again a very hot day.  It was some time ago that we last played here but today we were disappointed with the condition of the course; in our memory it was always much better maintained in the past.  Nevertheless we still had a nice day out.

There was just the 1 flight and Stuart Banks (H/cap 21), back after a training week in Indonesia, won it with 37 stable ford points.  In second place came Owen Walkley (16) with 34 points and Orn (20) was third with 33.

Near pin prizes were collected by Owen Walkley (triple) and Jonathan Pratt.
