       PSC Golf …Pattaya Links Golf Society…Pattavia.. Mon..May 1….S/Ford.

 

                               Christian’s Birthday Bash.

 

What a Party it turned out to be! 44 golfers came to celebrate at the beautiful Pattavia Century Golf Club to contest a Stableford round. Then nearly everybody returned to the “Links Bar” for the after party. Free drinks and food aplenty,a live band and golf presentations had the big crowd in the Party mood.

There are winners and winners as we had two flights with 4 placings in each, 4 nearest the pins and best 9s.

Pattavia was already very busy when our 44 golfers arrived, so much so that we were told there were no carts available. Some accepted that they would be walking, others not so sure. However, as the early morning players returned, carts did become available before we teed off.

This course is in magnificent condition, and although the greens were as quick as ever they didn’t seem as treacherous as usual. Maybe the pin placements were more friendly, or maybe we are learning how to play them??

With so many on the course, in addition to our large contingent, it became a long slow round so that we on the last bus arrived back at the Bar under the cover of darkness. Mine host, Phil, met us at the bus and told me to hurry inside before the free beer is all gone…. So who were the winners?

The best score of the day and getting to wear the Green Jacket was a visitor from Darwin ( Australia), Peter Bailey, scoring a big 43 points, well clear of Maurice Roberts, currently in fine form, beating two others on countback, all with 39 points. Nevertheless good scoring from Mike Allidi and Mark Cooper.

He seems to save the best for the big occasions! Torben Lingaard headed the “B” flight tryers scoring a terrific 40 points to edge out Peter Henshaw by a solitary point, well played. Ken Hole on 37 pts and Alan Walker 36 pts filled the placings.

Regular readers will know about the “Wig”, awarded to the player with the worst score of the day ( undisclosed, of course). We have had some fine golfers donning this prestigious prize, including “The Pocket Rocket “, she, the partner of today’s worthy recipient.

Birthday Boy Christian Boysen was very happy to get the “Wig” on his Big day, and just as happy to hand it back to Phil quickly after the photo op.

Thank You to all who participated in Christian’s Big day.
