Following the September tournament that had to be cancelled due to rain, it was back to Pattana (B and C nines) on Friday, November 15 for the 129th PSC monthly members’ comp that was played in perfect weather with just a little breeze. This delightful course was presented in excellent condition, with many complementary remarks coming from the players as they submitted their score cards.
Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham and Social Chairman Nigel Cannon were at the course early to prepare for registration and place the appropriate markers on the course ready for a 9 am – two-tee start. There was a maximum field of 120 signed up and with 3 withdrawals and 1 unexpected arrival, it was 118 players taking part.

John Davis (20) took ‘C’ Flight with 37 points but the best stableford scores of the day (41 points each) came in ‘D’ Flight from John Sheppard (24) and Ian Pickles (22), with John getting the nod on count back.
There were just a few ladies playing today and it was a return to the top of podium for Churairat Srinual (33) with 34 points. The Senior winner was Barry Oats.
This month’s presentation was at Dicey Reilly’s who produced their regular buffet with some ‘happy hour’ prices.
At presentation time Nigel welcomed all and introduced Golf Chairman Joe who expressed his appreciation to the day’s competitors and said that the December tournament would be at Mountain Shadow on the 20th. Then it was back to Nigel who announced the winners and Joe presented the prizes.
The lucky 50/50 draw followed to complete the evening and then it was then “goodnight” from Nigel, who reminded all that the PSC Christmas party is on Wednesday 11th December at the Town in Town Hotel and tickets are now available at the PSC office.
