King Naga – Stableford

1st Peter Allen (32) 37pts

2nd Stuart Mann (23) 36pts

3rd Les Cobban (9) 35pts

A new month of golf kicked off at the King Naga course where a field of eleven participated. The weather was fine and the course in good condition with the exception of the greens which had recently been cored and sanded and provided a real challenge with variable speeds and very bumpy surface. The sand had not been brushed in properly and some areas were covered totally by sand while others received none. The speed of play was just about right with no delays and the round completed in under four hours.

Peter Allen took top spot with a round of thirty-seven points. Peter is starting to regularly return some excellent scored so a cut in handicap may be imminent. Second place went to Stuart Mann one shot adrift while the ever-reliable Les Cobban took third on thirty-five points.

Near pins went to Takeshi Hakozaki, Frank Quinlan, Geoff Parker, Les Hall.

Wednesday, July 4,
Khao Kheow – Stableford

1st Neil Carter (12) 38pts

2nd Kob Glover (31) 36pts

3rd Alan Sullivan (14) 35pts

A field of twelve made their way to Khao Khoew Country club for our midweek round. Conditions for golf were almost perfect with moderate temperatures, bright skies, and a pleasant cool breeze blowing.

We were allocated the B and C nines where the course was in excellent order except for the tee boxes which were a bit ragged and could do with some attention.

Neil Carter took first place today with a score of thirty-eight points an excellent score by any measure on this challenging layout. Our only lady member Kob Glover took second place with a fine thirty-six. Kob is relatively new to golf and already showing signs she will be a force in the future with a free-flowing swing and an ideal temperament for golf. Alan Sullivan, who had an excellent back nine, took third with thirty-five points after beating Robbie Watts on countback.

Newcomer Chris Della-Mare took two near pins and Jimmy Carr and Geoff Parker took the other two.

Friday, July 6,
Pattavia – Stableford

1st Neil Carter (12) 38pts

2nd Les Hall (23) 37pts

3rd Jimmy Carr (17) 36pts

Despite a few notable absentees, today’s role up of fourteen was an excellent low season turnout for a round at the popular Pattavia course. As always the course was in fine condition, the greens are now back to the speed for which this course became renowned.

When someone is on their game it doesn’t seem to matter what the conditions are as was the case today with our winning group. Neil Carter took top position with an excellent round of thirty-eight points for the second time in two days. Second, went to Les Hall who is now starting to appear in the winner’s circle with monotonous regularity on a score of thirty-seven points whilst Jimmy Carr rounded out the winner’s circle in third on thirty-six points.

Near pins went to Stuart Mann, Les Hall, and two to Les Cobban.
