A Flight

1st Mark Wood (10) 37pts

2nd Barry Copestake (16) 36pts

Near Pins:  No 4 Jim Brackett No 9 Barry Copestake No 9 Claude Harder No 16 Peter Henshaw

The man of the match was none other than everybody’s nice guy Mark “Brenton” Wood who out raced a host of 37 points with his award winning and A Flight count back victory over Tony Huxtable and Mike Williamson.  The esteemed gentleman Tony edged Mike for the silver, therefore Mike’s trip to the podium was for exercise only.

In B Flight it was a case of who was playing his last round of his holiday.  Aussie Lou ‘the thunder from down under’ Szigligeti did as so many before him have done on getaway day, by equaling Marks A Flight 37 points Lou to finish one stroke clear of Gentleman Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake.

What happened to Friday’s PSC B Flight winner Mickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford?  Welcome back to the real world Mick.

Mark Wood and Barry Copestake added a 2 to their flight wins along with Nigel Black, Pat Reagan, John Baxter and Claude Harder.

Tuesday, Sept. 25, Greenwood B+C – Stableford

1st Nigel Black (8) 37pts

2nd Jim Bell (17) 35pts

2rd JP Maffray (11) 34pts

Greenwood can play as tough as any course around and that was certainly in evidence as only one player bettered his handicap.  Nigel Black topped out the field with a fine 37 points, closely followed by Aussie Jim ‘no’ Bell on 35 points.  JJ Maffray closed the flight a further shot back.

No 2’s so a rollover to Wednesday.

Wednesday, Sept. 19, Burapha B+D – Stableford

1st Billy Briton (17) 44pts

2nd Paul Hack (13) 40pts

3rd Nigel Black (8) 39pts

It was off to Burapha to play the British links and Dunes layouts for the lads and lasses for the always intriguing “what time is our real starting time?” regatta.  Irelands’ Billy Briton must have gotten it right as he led the boy’s home with a stunning 44 points for man of the match and a visit to the handicap sectary.

Paul Hack with a rock solid 40 points must have thought he had done enough for a win and most days he would have – but today he just picked the wrong day.  Nigel Black tided up the flight with a very respectable 39 points.  Amazingly over half the field posted par or better.

The Irish cleaned up the 2’s as Christy Knight and good friend Peter Henshaw split the rollover pot.

Jing Jai swimming pool day

With Friday’s scheduled game at Crystal Bay cancelled due to the weather, Lewiinski’s decided to empty the Jing Jai orphanage donation box and treat the kids to a day at the swimming pool.  The donation box receives any unclaimed prizes after a short period, and this coupled with the Lewiinski’s retirees and Alzheimer’s it does not take long to fill the box.

Again the day was very wet and downcast but this did not dampen the kid’s spirits as they had a great time, and they even got to try the famous Lewiinski’s buffet.  At the end of the day they went home really happy.  A big thanks to all concerned, especially to the Lewiinski’s staff and the golfers.

Note:  Lewiinski’s is situated on Pattaya Land Soi 1, Beach Road Soi 13/3 near to Walking Street.  Anyone wishing to play with us just pop in and add your name to the list or call Colin on 089 826 0764.  Transport is provided.
