A small contingent of11 brave souls made it to Khao Kheow on a very hot and humid day. The course was in far better condition than the golfers, who struggled around the B and C course where seven of the eleven failed to make 30 points. Neil Carter continued his fine run of form (which apparently the handicapper hasn’t noticed!) with 34 points only to be beaten on count back by Les Hall (to whom the handicapper continues to be very generous). Stuart Tinkler took third with 33pts.

Our thanks to Stuart Tinkler who kindly took over the duties of collecting the dues and arranging the playing partners as well as allocating transport. Thirteen players made their way up the 331, which is now a pleasure with most of the roadworks complete. The three groups enjoyed a day on a course that is remarkably well maintained with good quality greens which proved a little testing at times.Gerry Cooney managed to hold off the fast finishing pair of Les Burns and Stuart Tinkler and took the prime position with 35 points.For a change we held our prize giving in the clubhouse after the game before heading home.

Only eight players made the trip down to Ban Chang to a course that is always a pleasure to play where all the holes are well laid out and the course up to standard given the challenges of the heat. Les Burns once again playing well shortly before his return to home. We again held our after golf functions at the course before making the return trip.
