A VERY PERRY CHRISTMAS FAYRE AT BANGPAKONG
Cafe Kronborg played their Christmas Fayre at Bangpakong on Thursday for the prized Alec Chilcott Trophy. Everyone was a winner as the usual prizes were replaced by an entry fee of a wrapped golfing gift with everyone picking a prize in the order of the results.
The journey up to Bangpakong always seems daunting, but today it took just over one hour door to door. It’s a long way in kilometres but not so in time (going at least).
The golf course, as always, was in good condition, however the greens were slow. This added to a following wind, which seemed to follow you around the course and was always in your face, meant that the stableford scores were surprisingly low with no one beating their handicap.
With the Alec Chilcott Trophy being vied for there was only one flight.
Nigel Perry was the winner with a fine 36 points, having a crucial 4 pointer on the last hole, Tiziano Dal Pastro came a close 2nd with 35 points, Walter Baechli was 3rd with 33 points and Richard Kubicki came 4th on 32 points, beating Graham Buckingham into 5th place on countback.
There was also a booby prize for being a trooper, coming last and continuing to play although all hope had gone for the day. This was a tight fought position, but Eddie Glinsek claimed the spot with a score that will remain a secret never to be told.
A fun day was had by all and even the roadworks adding an extra half hour to the journey back didn’t dampen the Christmas spirit, as back at the Kronborg Singha’s were drunk at breakneck speed to make up for lost time. It’s not easy to do a write up with a slight Singha overdose!
My wife and I would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and would like to welcome old friends and new to join the group at the Café Kronborg.
