The final Diana Senior and Ladies Open for the year had 51 players at Pattaya Country Club on Thursday November 25.  It was a busy day with our friends from Café Kronborg following our 14 groups.

The course continues to improve and with the dry season here, there was lots of run on the ball which produced some excellent scores.  All the drink stops have been completely re-furbished making it a pleasure to stop for a quick one!

There was a big Irish group with us today providing the winners in both of the Men’s divisions.

Returnee Irishman – and good friend of the Diana Seniors – Tom Breslin (23) was the winner in the Super Seniors with 41 points, followed by Werner Schwarz (17) with 39 points.  All scores are submitted to Pattaya Sports Club.

Near Pins went to Ake Ovegren, Willy Hindsjo, Pimusa Tonkhoksoong and Werner Schwarz, while the long putts were sunk by Bo Temmell and Britt-Marie Wimmerstedt

Before announcing the winners Diana Seniors Organizer Nigel Cannon took the opportunity to thank all players for their support during the year.  He particularly thanked Alan Pearce who had checked the cards and worked out the results every month.  Appreciation was made of the staff at PCC for their help and friendliness throughout.

Nigel also stated that The Diana Group would continue with the Seniors and Ladies monthly open throughout 2011 – with some minor changes.

The next Diana Seniors and Ladies open is on Thursday, January 27 at Pattaya Country Club with a tee time of 0900.  Sign-up sheets will be at Diana Green Bottle on 2nd Road and the Diana Driving Range from early January.
