PSC Golf from the Billabong Bar

Monday, Dec. 10, Phoenix Gold – Stableford

Phoenix was jam packed today on all 3 nines but the management and the marshells did a splendid job and kept everything moving smoothly. We played Mountain and Lakes off the white tees and got round in 4 hours.

The scoring wasn’t too bad with only one countback between Glyn Davies and Capt Bob, with the Captain prevailing to take fourth place with 33 points. Third went to Dave Bramley with 34 points, second went to Lloyd Shuttleworth on 37 and the little general took line honours with a fine 38 points.

Wednesday, Dec. 12, Green Valley – Stableford

One benefit of golf in Thailand is that we have almost perfect playing conditions all year round and this may be a contributory factor for the high standard of play from the ladies today. Three of them came home with 39 points but it was Miss Sasicha (21) who lost out in fourth with 16 points on the back nine, not helped by 2 blobs. Miss Poopay (10) and Miss Kran (22) both had 19 points so it was down to the last 6 holes and, despite a blob, Miss Kran recorded 13 points and edged ahead of Miss Poopay by 1 point. The consistent Miss Porn (22) had six 3-pointers and three 4-pointers for her 42 points and No. 1 spot on the podium.

The men, as usual, could not match this performance with only 3 playing, out of 20, to their handicap. Arch Armstrong (10) had four consecutive 1-pointers for 35 points and fourth place, one behind Sandy Chapo (21) who birdied the last for 4 points for 19 points on the back nine and 36 overall, losing out to Mikael Anderson (15) who had 20 on the way home. But the star of the day was Wayne Cotterell (14) who had 8 consecutive pars starting at the 5th hole 43 points overall.

The 2s today went to Jeff North, Arch and Sasicha.

Friday, Dec. 14, Burapha – Stableford

We played Burapha A and B today with no holdups and the course was perfect in all ways. With 6 groups out we had a countback for the minor places, all on 36 points, with Sandy Chapo taking fourth, Dougie Crowe third and Capt Bob second. Bobby Driggs, playing his first game for a while, came out on top with 37 points to take line honours.

There were two ‘2’s, coming from Bobby Driggs and John Locke.
