PSC Golf from The Outback Golf Bar

Monday, July 25, Burapha – Stableford

With the A&B courses still in very good nick after the Singha tournament, there were few complaints today, especially after the great promotional pricing we provide for the next few weeks to local Pattaya residents holding a valid PSC or IPGC handicap (THB 1,450 all in).  Excellent conditions, great value and a not so hot day playing at a good pace with no hold ups.  This is as good as it gets folks!

The four-ball of Jimmy Little, Ivan Plunkett, John Fitzgerald and Pete Stonebridge captured 4 out of the 5 top spots.  According to Jimmy, even the sixes were tied till the very last hole!  Pete Stonebridge with 34 points came in 5th, Bill Peach with 35 in 4th, John Fitzgerald’s 36 points took 3rd, and Ivan Plunkett on 38 points was2nd, and our champion today was Jimmy Little on a fabulous 41 points.  Jimmy also scored the only 2 today and capped it off by ringing the bell back at the bar!

Wednesday, July 27, Khao Kheow – Stableford

Playing terribly on our recent tour to Phuket, Andy Makara has returned in a big way with 40 points last week and coming in with an eyebrow raising 42 points this week to clinch our Khao Keow tournament.  That’s great Andy, keep working on getting that handicap down again!

In 2nd place was Bill Peach, scoring an impressive 37 points from the silver tees on his course adjusted handicap and 3rd place went to Sugar Ray Handford with a good 36 points on one of his favorite courses.  Eddy Beilby is never far out of the picture and today he took 4th place with his 34 points, beating Hans-Georg Bufe on count back.

Friday, July 29, Green Valley – Monthly Medal

With an intimidating start due to the lake being filled up and a long carry, a medal competition can seem quite daunting when you stand on the first tee box at Green Valley at the moment.  Surprisingly, just about everyone navigated the first hole quite well judging by the scores.

Green Valley is in really good shape at the moment, the fairways were lush in most places and the greens were running at a good speed – maybe not championship fast but definitely not grainy and slow.

Finishing in 5th place was Barry Copestake with a net par 72 while Sugar Ray Handford came up with the goods again to finish with a great 69 net and 4thh spot.  Peter Nixon scored an awesome net 68 but lost on count back to Andre Coetzee for 2nd place.  Stefan Hoge scored an awesome net 66 to be this month’s Outback champion.  Well done Stefan!  The low gross went to Andre Coetzee with 78 off the stick.
