Surprise, surprise at Pattaya Country Club


PSC Cafe Kronborg Golf

Monday, December 30 Pattaya Country Club Stableford

Cafe Kronborg golfers visited Pattaya Country Club on Monday. Not expecting to find this golf course in the best of condition we were pleasantly surprised to find that it was and as some members of our group said, “This is the best condition this course has ever been in.”


Not sure what has been going on here but the course was extremely well presented – none of the usual moans and groans and even the old ropey 16th green looked like the surface of a pool table.

Somebody or some bodies know what they are doing here and the reputation of this course has in our view been substantially enhanced – “We (I) shall return”.

In spite of the excellent condition nobody beat the course apart from the youthful Graham Buckingham who pillaged the B Flight with his 37 points from the ladies tees – oops – sorry the silver tees leaving the old fogies to scrap over the minor places. C’est la vie – T.I.T.

Richard Kubicki admirably won the A Flight with his 35 points – playing from the men’s tees.

A Flight (0-21)

1st Richard Kubicki (12) 35 points

2nd Andre Van Dyk (14) 33 points

3rd Brian Gabe (18) 31 points

B Flight (22+)

1st Graham Buckingham (27) 37 points

2nd Daryl Evans (23) 33 points

3rd Tiziano Dal Pastro (25) 28 points

Eastern delights for the few 

Thursday 2nd January 2020 Eastern Star Stableford

Cafe Kronborg golfers went to Eastern Star on Thursday, a course we have not visited for many a year.

Due to the New Year festivities and family travel arrangements, we were a small band of brothers with our two sisters, but that did not detract from our enjoyment of this well presented golf course. Before leaving we again referred to the words of General MacArthur.

Due to the adaptability of modern technology we were able to invite our retired organiser Dave Richardson – who now resides in the USA – to join in our winners presentation photograph. Well done Dave – we miss you!

With only one flight today our winners were:

1st Jan Lovgreen (26) 37 points

2nd Rob Brown (8) 36 points

3rd Tiziano Dal Pastro (25) 34 points

4th Peter Hammond (31) 34 points

5th Henning Olsen (20) 34 points
