“The boys are back in town! Boys are back in town!” That wasn’t the girls of soi six of either category. No, they had their hands full of other things. This was just the society happy to have its numbers bolstered by the return of the Songkran refugees. Emboldened by the refreshing hiatus from Pattaya, the gang almost en masse turned out to play Green Valley, enough, that is to support two flights and three positions in each.
Sunday’s winners: Thierry Petrement and Kathy Doody.
Thierry Petremont and Wira Siduang were the stars of the show on the day with 42 points apiece, Thierry edging Wira for the match honors. Irishman Terry Mangan wasted no time in settling in on his return with a solid 41 points to close the flight.
If not the card of the day certainly the shot of the day belonged to Australian Mark Sayegh who fired an eagle on the sixth par four.
Kathy ‘Helga’ Doody dominated B Flight, returning an excellent 41 points. Sim ‘Card’ Davis stood on the podium looking up at Kathy in second place. John Hiller was looking the farthest one stroke back.
Monday, April 25, Khao Kheow – Stableford
1st Kevin Mcentee (6) 35pts

1st Adam Oyston (21) 35pts
2nd Mark Sayegh (17) 31pts
Kevin Mcentee and Andrew Byrne, two of the Co. Offaly mob who the paymaster knows by their Christian names, were locked in count-back as 35 points took the first and second podium places in the senior flight.
Adam Oyston also carded 35 points to win the junior flight, followed by Australian Mark Sayegh who edged Roger Cross by the narrowest of margins in another count-back.

2nd Colin Davis (15) 34pts
3rd Gordon Wallace (15) 33pts
Frank Higgins did the best work in the premier flight, as evidence by his 39 points; this also gave Frank the man of the match honors. You can probably guess who was but a shot behind, yes, Kevin ‘stick em up’ Mcentee, leaving Ed ‘The Right Honorable’ Wyckoff to fill the flight.
Sim ‘Card’ Davis put her Donkey in his place with 37 points. Colin’s 34 points were one better than Gordon Wallace’s.

1st Barry Elphick (22) 38pts
2nd Keith McLachlan (23) 38pts
3rd Jan Eriksen (18) 35pts
The society doesn’t travel well but the rewards were great as they ventured up the 331 to play the lightning fast greens of Greenwood. This was supported by the field’s performance.
Frank ‘Hurricane’ Higgins led everyone home for the second time in as many games with a masterful 40 point performance. The Donkey landed the silver, beating Eddy ‘the Eagle’ and Peter Hynard by one stroke. Eddy bettered Peter Hynard on count-back when their respective 36 points were laid down side by side.
It came down to two wily seasoned society members to see who would top the junior flight, Barry Elphick getting the right result in a count-back over Keith McLachlan as they were locked together on 38 points. Jan ‘the quite one’ rounded out the flight three shots adrift.
Frank Higgins, Eddy Beilby, Andrew Byrne and Keith McLachlan shared the ‘2’s pot.
