Back down the 7 to a course that was in good condition after all the rains and all the bare patches have now got good grass coverage. The greens and bunkers were excellent and no fault could be found with the course. Our man on fire Jimmy Carr once again winning the A flight beating Geoff Parker by a solitary point which makes him the leading contender to claim the golfer of the month title. A welcome to Chris Cox who managed to hang onto third. In the B flight another frequent winner Ross Schiffke shot lights out to score 45 points and must now come under the close scrutiny of the handicapper, but who minds losing a few shots after an outstanding game like this. Mike Brett was convinced that he had won with his excellent 41 points only to have his dreams shattered on learning of the top score.

Greenwood was, as always, in fine form with well tendered bunkers and fast smooth greens.In the A flight, Stuart Tinkler coming back to form with dreams of the Golfer of the month that he won at this time last year but will have to go some to catch the form players. Gordon Melia showing a glimpse of his previous ability and crept into third. In the B flight Peter Allen and John Hughes tied with 37 points each and on the count back Peter secured the win with 20 points on the back nine. John could be heard all evening recounting his game hole by hole to anyone who would listen.

This course is still not back to top notch condition and needs a little tender loving care but is probably suffering from the numbers playing there now that high season is here. Even cutting Jimmy Carr by a further stroke on his handicap didn’t stop him from recording his second win in A flight this week and everyone is tired of seeing his photo so often in Pattaya Mail. Geoff Parker must be wondering what score he needs to shoot in order to win and to add to his woes loosing the count back to Chris Cox with only 17 on the back nine to Chris’s 20.

Les Hall made the winning score in B flight managing to beat Eddie Kelly by one with Lawrence Harding in third. Neil Carter is enjoying the cold weather while cruising on the Mediterranean and everyone sends regards.
