The Golf Club 17/11
TGC write up for 13 – 17 Nov.
Mulholland drives to win!
Monday 13th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Bob Mulholland (8) 42 points
T-2nd – Mark Wood (9) 40 points
T-2nd – Peter LeNoury (15) 40 points
T-4th – Gary Emmett (14) 38 points
T-4th – Frank Tordeur (18) 38 points
Overcast skies were most welcome as our vans took off for Green Valley one more time. Greens here are back to their best, but I still can’t get over that inexcusable palm tree culling.
Today was the last round for our mate Frank Tordeur, who heads back home after several podium finishes over the last 3 weeks. Frank gets another one today in a big field of 28 with a 38 on the card. Just getting back in town, Bob Mulholland starts off his trip with a 42 point winner! Talk about hitting the ground running!
Sandwiched between them, locals Mark Wood and Pete LeNoury tie with 40 points with Gary Emmett 2 shots back to tie with Frank for fourth.
Tues. & Wed. 14th -15th – Kabinburi 2-man BB
Another trip up north gives us a chance to visit with our pal Oliver Daniel and to stay at his fabulous Serenity Hotel. The Kabinburi Sport Club was host to the 2-man betterball organized superbly by our mate Neil Carter whose M Club is home to the Bunker Boys. Paul Hack also brought some of the Darksider lads up for our 46 man tournament over the two days.
There was no rain at all (surprisingly) on the course and while Pattaya was getting drenched, we were high and dry…literally! I mean, there’s no point in going up there without a poolside wine and cheese party, is there?
Getting to the numbers, as Agent 86 might say…would you believe a 92? That was the tally Paul Hack and partner Dave Stockman posted for a convincing two day win. We had a slew of technical prizes and a fantastic BBQ buffet dinner to add to the great atmosphere of the event. Don’t worry, we will be back for another overnighter soon.
Friday 17th – Khao Kheow A & C – Stableford – Yellow Tees
1st – Franjo Blazevic (6) 42 points
2nd – Bob Mulholland (8) 41 points
3rd – Kenny Aihara (6) 35 points
Yes that is correct, the yellow tees. I guess Phil was feeling like his driver would be working today as the event at Khao Kheow was over 6,400 yards. For me, driver- three wood would have been the mantra for all but the par-3’s and being a bit on the damp side, the “plays like” factor would be closer to 6,700 yards.
The long hitters ruled the roost today as pro Franjo took first place with his new clubs finally out of the bag. Last weekend, he and fiancée Kathy tied the knot at a beachside resort past Jomtien so all the very best for your future together mate!
He won last Friday at Pattavia and today comes in third with 35 points, it is Kenny Aihara back to his old form. We will see more of Kenny after the NFL season is over and his beloved Boston Patriots give Ken a chance to play more golf!
We can’t leave without mentioning the winner of the Caddy Smile near pin, and that went to our pal Mitch Black. Yes, Mitch finally wins something! Way to go, we knew you had it in you Mitch!
