PSC golf from The Fairways Golf Society
Tuesday, March 29, Mt. Shadow – PAGS Monthly Tournament
Another great day out was well organised by the guys at the Fairways Golf Society. The cut today for the three divisions was 0-13, 14-18, & 19-28 with over one hundred golfers vying to win one of the many prizes on offer.
The weather was cool and dry and the course was in great shape. But as usual this course took its toll as only three players in the men’s division managed to break par.
In the A Flight Alan Pilkington just pipped his close friend Alan Griffiths by one point to take the honours with 37 points. Jan Silvandersson was the runaway victor in the B Flight with the highest score of the day (40pts) to win convincingly while George Young also had a comfortable win in the C Flight, finishing 4 points clear of second and third.

The ladies flight was a very close contest between Srithong (40pts) and the in-form Mam Moral (39pts).
At this stage of the aggregate tournament, Alan Griffiths is the overall leader of the men’s division and the ladies’ leader is Miss Moon.
After the prize presentations and a great BBQ, the celebrations went on well into the night.

Friday, April 1, Greenwood – Stableford
We knew it was April fool’s day but we did not expect anyone to be so foolish as the management at Treasure Hill. Yet again they ‘excelled’ themselves by not only double booking two outlets for the same time of 10.30 a.m., but also increasing their green fees for the low season by 150 baht rather than reducing them like everyone else.

After a frustrating 20 minutes of negotiations and getting absolutely nowhere we decided to make the short journey to Greenwood where the scenario was completely different as the staff there fell over backwards to accommodate us. The course was in great shape and everybody enjoyed it once we settled down.
Only one division today, with Pier Cere being the only player to break par and thus be the winner, while Bob Crawford beat Brian Maddox on a 17-13 count-back for second place.
