   PSC Golf …Pattaya Links Golf Society…Crystal Bay….Fri.  Mar.10…S/ford

 

                                      Irish Larry Dons  the Green Jacket

 

Busy morning at “Links” Bar as many golfers arrived early to breakfast and prepare for the trip to Crystal Bay. Loading into 3 Mini buses and a number of cars, 34 players were raring to go.

I’ve never been a back seat driver, so when our bus driver, Christian,drove right past the turn that I know is the way into Crystal Bay, I sat quietly wondering. Never fear, he had another entrance, via a rocky and dusty dirt track. Upon questioning later, “ no, I always go this way, I like it rough!!” OK.

Check into the Pro Shop was easy, as always at Crystal Bay, and unbelieveably my clubs had arrived with me. ( I personally put them in the bus 55)

Quick change and down to the first tee (C1). Golfers gathered, milling around waiting for their turn to tee off on this slightly warmer and a little windy day.

As the “A” course is closed for renovations, we, as has been the case for a while, played “C” and “B” in that order. The “B” course recently went through it’s own renovation and we find the difference in the 2 nines distinct. Not to say “C” is not a good golf course, but once you get to the much quicker greens on “B” and the slightly more lush fairways, the game plan needs to change somewhat. But isn’ that a way to keep us thinking?

St.Patrick’s Day is coming soon, and how fitting that the Best score of the day and to become the wearer of the” Emerald” Green Jacket is an Irishman by the name of Slattery, Larry, that is, His 40 points was the Top score for “A”Flight, followed 3 points in arrears by Phil Davies, still in fine form.

After a few games down on form, New Satita came right back with a very good 37 points, to take out “B”Flight from  Richard Dobson,  who had 35 points for the day.

Larry was presented with the Green Jacket by Phil, who then went in search of the next head to wear the “Wig”. Phil decided that, since he liked it so much last time, it will go again to Billy Hill. And proud he is.

Green Curry Chicken was today’s complimentary Golfers meal, and the winners of the “2s”.announceed.
