WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15TH
Is it going to close or not? How the management have decided to carry out the renovations to the course depends on who you speak to. Are they going to close the course, close a hole at a time, 9 holes at a time or what? We can only hope that the management know what they are doing but we will discover the result in due course. With the Singha Open taking place shortly, a lot of attention is being given to the course and, with the exception of some bunkers, the course is playing well and was reflected in the scores which, overall, were good. Ten groups today but Miss Noodle had the best score of the day. A welcome return to winning ways with 40 points but Miss Sa could have reached the 40 mark had she scored on 9 holes instead of 6 on the front nine but ended up with a respectable 38 points. Miss Kran secured 3rd place with 20 points on the back nine for 36 points. In the men’s competition, Wayne Cotterell beat off the challenge of Dick Hayes with a better back nine for 4th place on 35 points. Jeff North was steady with 36 points but a return to form from George Barrie secured 2nd place one better than Jeff. William Macey, a candidate to be the worst chipper in Thailand, surprisingly got up and down 3 times to secure the win with 38 points. 4 twos today going to Cottee, Arch Armstrong, Peter Le Noury and Miss Yen.
