The “Welcome Back” competition held on March 2, 2023 was the first in several years due to the covid pandemic, and it was good to see many friends and members returning to Thailand for their holiday. Great weather and a championship golf course at Green Valley awaited us for the 8.30 a.m. shotgun start and a field of 84 players very eager to complete. It was an excellent day as we were able to complete the round in approximately four hours and enjoyed a wonderful buffet, a couple of drinks and plenty of prizes. The results are as follows:
A Flight/ Hcp 0-15 1st Place: Mikael Andersson (14) 39 pts 2nd Place: Selwyn Gregory Wegner (14) 36pts 3rd Place: Chayaporn Rattanasrichan (9) 35pts
