Sunday, August 26,Green Valley – Stableford

1st Pierre Bietry (13) 43pts

2nd Mick Beresford (17) 40pts

3rd Bob Newell (5) 38pts

The performances on customer friendly Green Valley foretold it was to be a week of outstanding efforts.  Perhaps it was due to the excellent condition that the course finds itself in at the moment, or perhaps it is a winnowing of the competitors down to the battle hardened residents.

In any event, one didn’t have to look far for the man of the match as Pierre ‘the magician’ Bietry left the field spellbound with his magical 43 points (let’s see what trick Pierre has up his sleeve for the handicap sectary).

No one deserved to be more disappointed more than Mickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford who saw his stellar 40 points only good for second place.  ‘Broad more’ Bob tidied up the flight eventually with a solid 38 points.

Bob was in overdrive as he stood on the seventeenth tee level to par off the stick, the wind blowing through his hair, one more good drive and surely the game was his.  Sadly the wheels came of big time, a no scoring hole was followed by a single point on the last, and the rest as they say is history.  More treatment required!

Dave Shelton and ‘the Donkey’ split the 2’s pot

Monday, August 27, Bangpakong – Stableford

1st Michael Prideaux (11) 39pts

2nd Colin Davis 37pts

A tidy yet passionate group due in part to some of the society hardcore members off on tour to Hua Hin with our friend’s from the Outback golf society, and to our back-to-back playing days, traveled up the No 7 highway to tackle the tough Bangpakong Riverside.

The ‘Donkey’ had to be happy with his 37 points, that is until all the lads came in and reveled that Michael Prideaux had a very commendable 39 points that gave him the top score of the day.

Michael also carded a 2 along with Aussie Paul Hack as they split the 2’s pot

Wednesday, August 29,Burapha – Stableford

1st Thierry Petrement (10) 39pts

2nd Steve Landholm (13) 36pts

Today’s venue was the well maintained Burapha, with the usual coupling of A+B or American Wood and British Link.  Whatever the condition, whatever the nines, it seemed to agree with Thierry Petrement returning back to the society after a short holiday back home and carrying on where he left off, as his 39 points was the best of the day.

Thierry was three strokes clear of Steve Landholm and Sunday’s top man Pierre ‘the magician’ Bietry.  Pierre’s tricks did not impress Steve however as he took the second place in the resulting count back.

Claude Harder, John Harney and the Aussie 2’s specialist Paul Hack shared the 2’s pot

Friday, August 31,Mountain Shadow – Stableford

1st Ed Wyckoff (9) 35pts

2nd Paul Hack (12) 34pts

It is not unusual that the field was challenged by Mountain Shadow and that no one matched their handicap.  While the course measures an unthreatening 6276 yards, it is tree-lined to an extent unique on the Eastern Seaboard, sports a quartet of devilish par fives and is generally considered the most difficult par 72 layout in the area.

Tenacity and perseverance can count for a lot on a course like this and those were the attributes displayed by Ed ‘our man in the White House’ Wyckoff as he bested the field with 35 points.  Aussie Paul Hack, continuing to impress, came second and gave notice that he is ready to do some damage.

Dave Shelton slotted home the only 2 of the day.
