Cook & Ritchie top 40 at Green Valley


PSC golf from The Outback Golf Bar

Tuesday, April 17, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford

With most of Pattaya’s golfers away and missing the joys of Songkran, there were just 7 Outbackers who arrived at Pattaya Country Club to find an almost deserted course.

The weather was hot and the course, with only the front nine open, was in a reasonable condition although a lot of work is going on creating new tees – using the grass being taken from the back nine as it undergoes its lengthy refurbishment.

There were no ‘2’s so it was three places.

In top spot was Terry Marney (29) with 39 points; second was Nigel Cannon (21) with 38 and a count back for third between the two ladies playing today both having 36 points.  Thanks to a better back nine, Orn (14) got the nod over Seesa (26).

Chad was the man in charge and a welcome return to Alan Pearce.

Friday, April 20, Green Valley – Stableford

20 Outbackers went to Green Valley on a very hot and humid day; numbers were down due to Songkran and the recent trip to Royal Hills.  The course was in great condition and gets better week after week and the scores are starting to reflect the quality of the course.

Welcome to new members Phil Stevenson, Richard Cook, Gary Ritchie and Alan Clark.

Two divisions plus the ‘2’s with newcomer Richard Cook winning Division 1 with the day’s best score of 41 points on his 11 handicap and Greg Ritchie continuing his recent good form, winning Division 2 with 40 points on his 20 handicap.

Ian Heddle had the only ‘2’ of the day on hole 12.
