Gamble shines brightest at Emerald


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort Pattaya

Tuesday, Nov. 17, The Emerald – Stableford

Tuesday we went with 3 groups to The Emerald.  The sun was shining, the course was in good condition and we had some guest players to complete our group.  For them it was also a nice experience. 

Despite the good conditions we had no high scores today and most of us had problems on the greens.  Neil Harvey (H/cap 16) played a strong back nine with a beautiful birdie on the last hole, but it was just not enough to get amongst the prizes.  George Gamble (25) was the winner with 36 stableford points, beating Sam Gettinby (24) on the back nine.

Near pins went to Neil Harvey, Willem Lasonder (20) en Paddy Devereux (22).

Thursday, Nov. 19, Treasure Hill – Stableford

On Thursday we went to beautiful Treasure Hill and found the course to be in perfect condition with very good greens.  It was a enjoyable day with sunny weather and a nice breeze, but it was still not an easy course to play.

George Gamble & Richard Schuttenhelm.

The winner on the day was Richard Schuttenhelm (36) with 36 points, three ahead of Paddy Devereux in second.

The near pins were claimed by Paddy Devereux, Richard Schuttenhelm and Willem Lasonder.
