Habgood holds on for monthly title


PSC golf from The Bunker Bar

Monday, Feb. 28, Khaow Kheow – Stableford

A large group turned up to play the always popular Khaow Kheow and it was two regulars who haven’t been winning much lately who took the honours.  John Hughes won the B Flight and Alan Sullivan had the best round of the day to win the A Flight.

A count-back decided second and third places in the A Flight; Tony Robbins edging Dave Harvey for the runner up spot and Gerry Cooney was the unlucky one to lose out altogether!

The Bunker Bar February ‘golfer of the month’ Peter Habgood gets some help ringing the bell from Lily. The Bunker Bar February ‘golfer of the month’ Peter Habgood gets some help ringing the bell from Lily.

Friday, March 4, The Emerald – Stableford

Steady rain greeted the golfers who turned up for breakfast this morning and with the forecast predicting rain all day it wasn’t looking too good to get a round in.

After several phone calls to check on the weather in different parts of the region the amateur weathermen amongst the Bunker Boys cancelled Crystal Bay and decided to head south of Pattaya, hoping the rain was travelling north, and would have stopped by the time we got to the hastily booked Emerald.  Well, lo’ and behold, the forecasters were correct and hardly a drop of rain was seen all day!

Cyril Wallwork took advantage of the damp (similar to the UK) conditions and won the comp with a respectable 35 points.

1st Cyril Wallwork (10) 35pts

2nd Mark Stanley (11) 31pts

3rd Arthur Rowley (28) 29pts

Near Pins:  Lee Butler, Cyril Wallwork and Mark Stanley.
