Apple’s Irish Bar 19/1
Our small society , despite current and understandable restrictions, continues to get good support.
On Tuesday 19th Jan we had a very good turnout of 6 groups for our January Medal which is gererously sponsored by A1 Car and Bike Hire. We played it at Pattaya Country Club which was in good condition and at 1,080 all-in great value for money. There were no 2’s so a very nice pot gets carried over to Laem Chabang. 1st, 2nd and 3rd in B Flight went to Rudy Regenass (20) Captain Gerry (19) and Randy Tusing (35) with 71, 73 and 76 nett respectively. 1st, 2nd and 3rd in A Flight went to Bob Newell (12), Paul Greenaway (12) and Simon Philbrook (10) with 69, 72, and 74 nett respectively. 1st place and Medal winner with a terrific 68 nett was Shaun Pullen ( 13 ).
Also a very good turnout for our 1st CrissCross 3Ball at Pattana. We had 5 groups and if Pullen hadn’t got pulled we would have had 6 groups. .
