PSC Golf from the Billabong Bar
Pattana was our venue for this Monday’s golf and it had been a long time since we had played here, but we will be coming back for more. We had just a small group playing today and it all went well with no rain. The course was in fantastic condition with some tricky pin placements that made it tough to get close but it was a challenge.
The scoring was very good with the lovely Miss Sasicha taking second with 35 points and recoding the only ‘2’ of the day while John Cogan got the top spot with 38 points.
Wednesday, July 18, Green Valley – Stableford
There is much activity around this course at the moment. In preparation for a forthcoming pro tournament, a pond has appeared at the 8th hole which was not in evidence previously and others have been cleared of various plants. To be fair, Green Valley is certainly looking good.
Some regular names occupied the first three places for the ladies with Miss Noodle recovering from a nervous start to have 4 consecutive pars for 12 points and third place with 36 points, 2 behind Miss Joy who had a good back nine with 21 points but unable to catch another regular on the podium, Miss Am, who almost lost it with only 5 points in four holes but recovered to a total of 39 points.
Arch Armstrong lost the back-nine by 1 point to Fergus Brennan on 35 points despite a minor breakdown with only 6 points on the first five holes on the trip home but still had 16 points on the back-nine. Mikael Anderson once again occupied the podium on 39 points for second place but he was edged out by Selwyn Wegner with 40 points.
Only one ‘2’ recorded today, going to Miss Lynn.
Tony Oakes and Jeff North had recently thrown out a ‘seemingly’ confident challenge to Selwyn and William Macey, imagining some easy pickings, but they returned to the clubhouse with red faces and their tails firmly between their legs.
Friday, July 20, Burapha – Stableford
Burapha on a cloudy day and the course was in great shape. We played C and D for a pleasant change and with 5 groups playing it was a good day out for all.
The prizes went down to fourth place as there were no ‘2’s recorded. In fourth spot was Paul Greenaway with 34 points, third went to Capt Bob with 35, him being beaten by the Govenor Sandy Chapo on count-back, and taking the top spot was John (the Irish Rover) Cogan with 38 points, his second time on the podium this week.
