Thirty odd golfers rocked up to the picturesque Khao Kheow course to take on C and A nines. Some were disappointed that the par-three Alcatraz hole on B course would be missed today, but the majority of players were considering themselves lucky to be able to save some predictable lost balls!
Despite ideal conditions, only one player managed to better their handicap. Young Brad Todd continuing in fine form, top scored with 37 points in B grade followed jointly by dad, Martin Todd, in A grade and Anthony Cook in C grade, both with 35 points.
Steve Younger deserves a special mention for winning three of the four nearest pins and outright 3rd in A grade.

We had 24 eager golfers waiting to take on Mountain Shadow today. Playing from the white tees scores were not too bad with the one outstanding return once again came from Brad Todd. He has hit a purple patch with us and the handicappers will catch up with him soon.
It was tight at the top of A Flight as Keith Buchanan, Steve Younger and Martin Todd all returned 35 points. The count back system was put into play and they finished in that order.
B flight saw Brad Todd return with 40 points (again) to beat Shane Young and Graham Laurie (Patch) who were well ahead of the rest of the field.
