PSC 136th Monthly Golf Tournament

Friday, September 19, Greenwood Golf Course

There were 113 members signed up for today’s tournament at Greenwood – which was presented in fine condition.  There were 2 no-shows, leaving 111 – a phone call to the office is all that is required. Checking in was swift, with the Greenwood office staff being most helpful, together with sunny weather all was set for a fine golfing day.

With Golf Chairman Mark being unwell it was down to the international team of Dick Warberg, Peter Blackburn, Andre Van Dyk, Tom Herrington and Nigel Cannon to take care of registration – marking the technical holes, and acting as starters on both the 1st and 10th tees. As the players returned in a little over 4 hours it was Peter and Nigel who checked the cards and calculated the results.

This month the presentation and prize giving was at Shenanigans in Jomtien with great freshly cooked food by Dave of the Sportsman and excellent service provided by the Shenanigans’ staff. Those who attended, which was fewer than was hoped, had an enjoyable evening which was over by 8 p.m.

Golf Chairman Mark West had recovered enough be at the presentation and following introduction by Nigel, Mark expressed his appreciation to today’s players and the team at the course, Dick, Peter, Andre, Tom and Nigel for taking care of the administration and to Noi Emmerson for the selling of the 50/50 lucky tickets.  He also commented on the excellent work that happens before the day by Mai and PSC office staff – it does make running the day much easier.

Mark went on to inform members of the current situation reading the voucher arrangements PSC had made with a number of courses.

Nigel then announced the winners and Mark presented the prizes. This month there was an extra long putt prize – donated by Tip Briney to celebrate his 68th birthday and won by Larry Deverdenne – who promptly returned his winning back to PSC. This was followed by the lucky draw. It was time for the 50/50 draw which this month had additional prizes with 4 x 1000 baht vouchers kindly donated by Mark of Shenanigans and 2 x 1000 baht vouchers kindly donated by Freddy Starbeck for his new restaurant D’ablo.
