A clear day for our visit to a regular venue which is a favorite of our members. As always the course was in excellent condition with the greens running true and fast. P J Redmond off the silver tees was able to put together his usual controlled round with some fine putts and despite his lack of distance was mostly on the fairways. Gordon Melia managed to keep Ken Davidson out of second place with 13 points to Ken’s 11 points over the last six holes after both had regulation 18 points over the last nine holes. On the way home storm clouds gathered and all our players had just handed in their cards when the heavens opened, causing a flood which took hours to subside.

There was a good turnout for this course which appeals because of the reasonable rate plus the condition of the course which is always testing but playable. Gordon Melia featured again following up his 34 points on Monday with 36 points today.Thomas Nyborg was able to deny P J Redmond a place on the podium with his excellent 21 points on the back nine to P J’s 17 points. It is definitely the rainy season as there were heavy rains most of the return journey but fortunately dried up completely when we arrived home.

A low turnout for this medal round on a course that has tried hard to recover from the dry period when there were many dry patches which have not yet grown over. Apart from this the course was well presented with good greens and nicely trimmed fairways. Jimmy Carr rose to the top with a fine 71 net with a controlled game that did not encounter too many problems and saw him in dispatches for the second time this week. The short holes were testing with only two of them claimed.The Bunker Boys play out of The M Club located 100 metres up Soi 14 off of 3rd Road.
