PSC Golf from Colin’s Golf Bar

Sunday, Dec. 20, Silky Oak – Stableford

Just a small group today with some of our regulars home for Xmas.  With the weather turning cooler the last few days we had the perfect weather for golf, the course as always was in good condition but the greens were a little slow. 

All the scores were in the lead group today with the PSC Golf Chairman/ President Maurice Roberts forgetting all the pressures of his unpaid job and relaxing on the golf course to post a solid 38 points, closely followed by his playing partner Bob Watson with 37.  ‘The Donkey’, in the next group was going round OK till he got to his bogie hole the 15th where he paused to ‘wash’ a couple of golf balls but he still managed to get third with 35 points.

Marcus Earp seems to have run out of his good form now he is down to a 30 handicap and he finished with 31 points today, just missing out on his 1st eagle by 2 inches.

1st Maurice Roberts (11) 38pts

2nd Bob Watson (3) 37pts

3rd Colin Davis (20) 35pts

Wednesday, Dec. 23, Khao  Kheow – Stableford

Another joint venue today with the Phantom Golf Bar and for some lucky ones Phil Davies found a few vouchers he had been given which entitled 5 people on each voucher to a green fee of 650 baht.

As it was coming up to Christmas you have to expect a few no-shows and through illness and a few midnight kidnappings the field was reduced to 23 players, but as we had only booked for 6 tee times it was no problem.

The course, played off the yellow tees, was in excellent condition and we had an early Xmas present for our 2 lady golfers out today and in first place it was Nat Rukkid with 33 points followed by Tina Orth with 32, beating Tore Eliassen on count back.

Only one male golfer played better than his handicap, Alistar Gall with 37 points off his 18 handicap, followed by Mike Jefferys in second who edged a count back over Peter (speaks Thai) Hynard, both tied with 34 points each.

The near pins were claimed by John Warren & Mogens Melander and the long putts by Torben Lindgaard & Oliver Orth.
