PSC Golf from The Billabong Golf Bar
Monday, Feb. 9, Khao Kheow – Stableford
Monday saw us take a trip to Khao Kheow with 3 groups and when we got there we found the course to be in good condition with slick greens. It was quite busy but we got off to an early start and kept good timing for the A course, we did slow down a bit on the inward C nine but not enough to spoil a good day.
It was the first time playing this course for a few of the players and it has been a while for others. The minor places were very close with fourth going to ‘Gentleman’ George Barrie on 36 points, closely beaten by ‘Kick Ass’ Kev Wild with 37. Thirty eight points gave Glyn Davies second place but this was well beaten by a great score today of 42 from one of our regular lady players, Nid.
Wednesday, Feb. 11, Green Valley – Stableford
It was a fun day out at Green Valley today, with the ladies playing a stableford round and the guys playing a rainbow event. It’s not all that easy playing from the red tees as some will contest they make some of the trouble come into play very easily. Some of the stories coming in at the bar later on were hilarious to say the least, with players scoring double and sometimes treble bogies from these tees.
George Barrie, Kevin Wild and William Macey.
The ladies were a little disappointed I was told so next time we will have a rainbow for girls only, very sorry about that ladies!
The course was in great condition as usual with lightening fast greens, but the fairways are showing a little sign of lack of water.
Coming in third in the ladies division was Liz Collier with 34 points, second went to Saipin Woollett with 35 and taking top spot was Yanghong Sakulthip (Thip) with a great 40 points.
In the men’s rainbow event the places went down to fourth with William Macey taking that spot on 36 points. Third place went to George Barrie with 37 and second was taken by Sel Wegner with 39, but topping them all was Kevin Wild with a fine 40 points, 16 of them coming on four holes and 25 points on the back nine alone!
There were three ‘2’s, coming from Colin Goon, Wayne Cotterell and Ray Adams.
Friday, Feb. 13, Greenwood – Stableford
Five groups playing today at Greenwood and we were off to a slightly early start and finished in under four hours. The course was in great condition and the greens are as good as you will putt on anywhere, really fast and true. They have had a lot or rain on the course recently as some of the bunkers had a lot of water in them.
Pin, Lot, Thip and Liz.
Colourful ‘Kick Ass’ Kevin Wild had another fine day out today, winning with a fine 42 points (24 points on 6 holes). Taking second was Dave Collier with 39 and in third was Peter Eriksson with 37.
There was only one ‘2’ today, coming from Capt Bob (must have been an easy putt),
