3rd Eddy Beilby (19) 36pts

4th Peter Kelly (11) 36pts

Sunday as everybody knows is our very popular visit to Green Valley.  The weather was hot and humid with the fairways suffering from a little miss management and showing plenty of bare patches.

Barry Copestake.

The gang were led home by Lewiinski regular Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake with a fine 39 points.  Barry was one clear of Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw while Peter LeNoury was unlucky to miss out on a podium visit as he lost out in a three-way count back which was won By Eddy ‘the eagle’ Beilby.  Eddy was followed up the podium steps by Ireland’s Peter Kelly.

Monday, April 4, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

1st John Harrison (14) 43pts

2nd Bernard Green (28) 40pts

3rd Don Russell (16) 38pts

Not sure if it was the hot and humid weather conditions or players suffering from problems associated with activities the night before, but today’s turnout was a bit sparse.  However, for those that did make the effort it was an enjoyable game of golf, as the scores would indicate.  The course was in fine condition with the greens playing quite fast and true.

Leading the gang was the man who is always there or there abouts, John Harrison, with a sparkling man of the match 43 points.  John was followed up the podium steps by Bernard Green with a splendid 40 points.  Don Russell and Ireland’s Matt Cronin both beat their handicaps by two strokes, with the former prevailing in the count back.

There was no game on Wednesday but a presentation was held at Lewiinski’s to present the families of the two caddies who were killed in a motor accident with monies raised in a golf tournament, which was held last month by golfers from all over the Pattaya area.  The amount raised was a staggering 250,000 baht that will be shared by the mothers and fathers of the two caddies.

Both the families thanked all concerned.

Friday, April 8, Parichat – Stableford

1st Robert Smith (12) 38pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (23) 36pts

3rd Joe Tynan (32) 34pts

4th Lawrence McBride (13) 33pts

The Pichet Nuengumnong and Parichat Vivatonat designed Parichat golf course was the challenge for today’s game, a course you either love or hate with its long water carries.  The layout was found to be in excellent condition, but as usual it was the greens where the battle was won or lost and most had to settle for second best to the course.

Robert Smith topped the leader board with a very creditable 38 point return that gave much to his steady game from the tee and his fine putting skills.  Robert was two strokes clear of Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw who lifted the silver.  Third spot on the podium was filled by another Irishman and always a sight for sore eyes, Joe ‘sat-nav’ Tynan with 34 points.  Scotland’s Lawrie McBride closed the flight with 33 points.
