PSC 116th Monthly Golf Tournament
Friday, July 20, Treasure Hill – Stableford
Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham made Treasure Hill the venue for the July PSC monthly golf tournament – and what a popular decision it was with 82 competitors, including 13 ladies and a number of new faces. One of the regular ladies Arisa Hennings was playing her last PSC event for a while as she leaves for Canada for a ‘happy event’ shortly.
The course has improved considerably over the last year or so and even though we had a 30 minute spell of heavy rain at the start’ it soon dried out and with it being cooler it was perfect golfing weather. This made the rounds a little longer than the norm but there were no complaints.
John Hall, long drive A flight.
We were the only players there today and the attention by the Manager and the staff – including the caddies –all added to the day.
This month it was Joe and PSC Treasurer Bob Lindborg who welcomed members as they registered.
Treasure Hill is regarded by most as a tough track and so it was today – by most! But not for the low gross winner – teacher Doug Lynch – who has a handicap of 3 and came in with a gross 74 despite putting his ball in the water on 1 hole! No photo as Doug was not at the presentation.
Countdown was required for ‘A’ Flight – playing medal from the white tees – with both Philip Page (11) and Brian Holden (6) both having a net 75 with Philip declared the winner.
‘B’ Flight from the yellow tees saw the best Stableford score of the day from Michael Beresford (18) with 38 points.
‘C’ Flight needed a count back as both Henry Wong (22) and Brian Price (20) secured 36 points with Henry getting the nod.
The ladies flight saw past Treasure Hill caddy number 5! also the better half of Colin, i.e. Sim Davis (H/cap 24), coming in with 37 points.
On the subject of Lewiinski’s, once again Colin and his staff provided another first class buffet to suit all tastes and that, together with excellent service from the ‘Lewiinski’s Lovelies’, made a perfect end to a fine day.
An exception to the normal routine came when a golf bag was given to Colin by Bob St. Aubin to raffle. All the income, 7,500 baht, was for the benefit of Baan Jing Jai.
Presentation time – Nigel introduced Joe who expressed his appreciation to all players today and echoed the comments regarding the buffet.
Brian Parrish – 3 near pins.
After the presentation Nigel then announced the winners – Joe presented the prizes, which was followed by the lucky draw. Finally this month’s 50/50 winner was Brian Neal. Full results are on the PSC web-site and on the club notice board.
The next monthly is on Friday 20th August at Eastern Star and sign-up sheets are at the PSC Office.
A special monthly charity tournament has been scheduled for Friday 21st September at Siam Plantation.
