The Golf Club 23/01
The Golf Club write-up for 19th – 23rd Jan.
Woody nails it!
Monday 19th – Rayong Green Valley – Monthly Medal – White tees.
1st – Yazuru Yamasaki (18) 38 points
T-2nd – Alfie Butler (18) 35 points
T-2nd – David Deira (18) 35 points
Another fine day of weather as overcast skies for most of the round made it a great day of golf. Winner Yazuru Yamasaki had the same magic as Adrian last week at 38 points, so now you know what to shoot for lads. An unusual feat as we look at this week’s leaderboard as all on the podium play off an 18 handicap! What are the odds of that?
Our visitor Yazuru from Japan took a note from Kenny Aihara and won the day with a 38 point round on a course he is not that familiar with. A tie for second with 35 points found (What’s it all about?) Alfie and Davey D. neck and neck so a split those handsome man vouchers!
Wednesday 21st – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Mark Wood (7) 36 points
2nd – Alfie Butler (18) 34 points
T-3rd – Mark Tilden (13) 32 points
T-3rd – David Ferris (24) 32 points
Yes, back to our favourite track and the most improved golf course of 2014! This place gives more bang for the buck than the Devil’s Den and still features the most exciting greens in Chonburi. The course was a bit dry and hard in places but never mind, it was still great fun.
It’s tough to turn in a card here with much more than a mid-thirty score on it, but Mark Wood shot better than most and equaled his handicap here today. Mark is on a roll of late, and even with the whole family in town manages to keep his wits about him to focus on the game at hand. Good goin’ Woody! Alfie stays in form and takes another second place, whilst TGC regulars mark Tilden and Dave Ferris tie for third.
Friday 23rd –– Khao Kheow – Yellow tees.
T-1st – Barry Russell (6) 33 points
T-1st – Alfie Butler (18) 33 points
T-1st – Mark Wood (7) 33 points
T-1st – Bill Shepley (7) 33 points
What a funny old week for golf. On Monday all the winners had an 18 handicap and today all the winners shot 33 points. What are the odds of that?
Khao Kheow rewarded us today with better pin positions, as the greenskeeper finally made up with his wife. They were rolling quickly out there, but true as an arrow so no reason to complain. The rest of the course was absolute heaven and now is the time to get out and play Khao Kheow. We all loved it!
As you can see from our leaderboard, a four-way tie ended another magic week of golf. There is a reason January is the peak of the high season and perfect weather was with us once again. Mark Wood finished on top for a sensational week, but visiting Irishman Alfie Butler was on the podium every golf day this week!
This weekend, many of us head up to Chiang Mai for the Mulberry Ryder Cup 2015 as 20 of England’s finest take on 20 of the best lads from The Rest of the World. Follow our fortunes and foibles on our facebook page www.facebook.com/golfclubpattaya as we play the best golf courses in the far northwest of this beautiful country. Good luck to both sides on this highlight tournament of the golf year for The Golf Club. Bon Voyage Boys!
