Brooks bags the win at Treasure Hill


PSC golf from Tropical Bert’s

Wednesday, Dec. 11, The Emerald – Stableford

It made a change playing on a Wednesday and in fact seemed to throw the week off somehow.  Still, we had a pretty good turnout this day, maybe because we had a late start, and it was a good bunch that set off for the Emerald.

It was a trip of discovery going to the course with Mashi as we went on roads I have never travelled, but we finally got there to find the Emerald very busy.  We got off the first tee a bit late due to a glitch in the booking and apart from it being a slow round the players were also challenged by the testing layout and a stiff breeze.  This course is difficult to play on with the lies you get never on the level and with raised greens all the way around.

Back at Bert’s we soon got into the results and in the A Flight, 0 to 18, the winner was John Hackett with 38 points ahead of Tony Scamber in second with 37 and Mark West in third with 36.

In the B Flight the winner was Daryl Evans with 36 points while there was a count back for second on 33 points that saw Barry Oats take the runner-up spot and Brian Gabe finish third.

Near pins went to Max Bracegirdle, Landis Brooks, Tony Scamber and Barry Oats.

Friday, Dec 13, Treasure Hill – Stableford

This day we expected very few golfers as most of our regulars had decided to go ahead and marshal at the Thailand Golf Championship at Amata Spring Country Club.  So Mashi and Daryl Evans ‘volunteered’ to run the day and thanks go to them.  In the circumstances we still had a fair group of players who set off.

I am informed the course was in good condition and those who played had a great day.  Later at Bert’s the players returned as usual and another group also returned, in green shirts, who told me that the day at Amata Springs went well and they were to go back on the Sunday.  It really is tough here in Thailand.

The winner on the day was Landis Brooks with a fine 40 points ahead of Max Scott in second with 35 points.  Taking third was Ted Morris with 33 points on count back over Daryl Evans in fourth while in fifth was Henry O’Brien with 32 points.  T.T.F.N.
