Wednesday, August 17, Pattavia – Stableford

The journey up the 331 has improved since our last visit here and also there is now a right turn on the Pattana short cut route, so we will be looking into going back here again soon.  The course was in a very good condition with very lush fairways and speedy greens.

On the podium yet again today was Paul Butler who won division 1 with 38 points ahead of Chris Voller in second on 35.  Mario Semmens beat Colin James on count back to win division 2 after they both came in with 36 points each.
