Today we were off to play the refurbished Century Chonburi, now known as Pattavia Century and after a smooth check-in we got off the first tee bang on time.  The course was in fine condition with crusty but fairly fast greens and the staff were very professional.  The previously meager facilities have been upgraded and the new clubhouse will be opening about the third week in January.  The staff were unable to tell us about any possible increase in green fees once the clubhouse is opened.

The course was busy but we still got around in about 4 hours and 15 minutes, even though we caught up with a 5-ball on the 11th.

Today we welcomed Georg Bolik from Germany, Hugh O’Donnell and Monte Sykes from America and said goodbye to Joe Vanderwegon who was heading back to Belgium.

We had two flights with the cut at handicap 22 and Tate Akifumi won the A Flight with 38 points ahead of Niels Hansen in second on 37.  Don richardson took third with 34 points and Mike Winfield won a count back for fourth over Leif Kirkgaard.

Kurt Sandgaard led the B Flight home with 35 points while Joe Vanderwegon placed second just one behind and Susan Gaarde and Hugh O’Donnell placed third and fourth respectively.
