PSC golf from The Golf Club Sports Bar

Monday, June 13, Green Valley – Stableford

Rain was the word of the day.  15 golfers set out with good intentions as the sky was a dreary grey.  It only took 5 holes of play before the Golf Gods unleashed winds and rain of biblical proportions.  1½ hours or so later we attempted the restart but were foiled again.  

The popular call was to abandon play and head for a hot shower and some libations.

Wednesday, June 15, Khao Kheow A&C – Stableford

1st Gabriel Enright 32 pts

2nd Dale Shier 32pts

3rd Bob Newell 32pts

Word of the day …count-back.  The aforementioned Golf Gods gave us a break today and although the course was already mushy underfoot, we managed to get in a rain free round.

Dale Shier, arriving the day before from offshore Israel, started with a flurry making 6 points on the first two holes on C course and was already counting baht in his mind.  ‘Seamless’, playing in the same group, quipped “you have peaked to soon mate.”  Next hole – blob.  Doh!

Eventually when all was said and done three were tied on 32 points.  Let the dreaded count-backs begin: Gabriel Enright B9-18, Dale Shier B9-17, Seamless B9-14.  Seamless also took the 2’s pot with two.

Best dressed went to Dale Shier as his perennial competitor Mick Beresford is currently offshore.

Friday, June 17, Crystal Bay – Stableford

The low season crunch is upon us.  We had only 6 sign up so a call was made to Colin at Lewinski’s and he welcomed us to join his outing at Crystal Bay.

Dale Shier continued his streak of luck and took the A Flight with 36 points while Jack Spencer was second with 35.

‘Kaptain Klipboard’ had one of the five 2’s recorded on the day.

Thanks to Colin and the lads at Lewinski’s for accommodating us and those that supported our outings this week.
