Pattaya seems a bit cooler than last week and the golf is a bit more bearable these days. Our weekly jaunt to Green Valley was a lovely day out, especially for one Scotsman!
Mark Wood had his best round of golf in ages and a 43 on the card was the best we have had out here at RGV in quite some time.
It would turn out to be a stellar week for Alan Rothwell who shot a 40 out here today. Alan will find himself on the 40 or better mark for every round this week!

Masao Ishikawa, Dale Shier, Winner Blake Hanna, Alan Rothwell and Mark Wood.
It was a beautiful day for a medal as we headed up highway 7 to Khao Kheow. This is one of our favourite courses and today she was spectacular. They have closed the “B” track for renovations and we can’t wait to see the results.
There were some great scores out there today so let’s get on with it. When you shoot a net 69 and only stake a claim for fifth spot, it is a tough field out there. Dale Shier and Fred Graham shared that podium place at 69. Ishi (last weeks big Kabinburi Killer) and the hot Alan Rothwell could only muster joint third on a crowded box.
When you walk into the clubhouse with a net 64 you would think it to be a shoe in. Mark Wood had his doubts and he was right! Still, it was a fine round indeed, even with that rogue shank! After his winning 43 points on Monday, Mark can certainly hold his head high.
Story of the day and the winner of our March Monthly Medal is our friend Blake Hanna. Blake has been playing with us for the last three months and is winding down his trip to Pattaya in style. You would think a 62 would be a record, but in fact Blake is at a tie with Brett Chan who also shot a 62 three years back. Great shooting Mr. Hanna!
Friday 1st – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Alan Rothwell (8) 41 points
2nd – Kenny Aihara (5) 39 points
3rd – Doc Beard (23) 34 points
Have you played this golf course yet? It is a beautiful track designed by the Nick Faldo team and it is terrific condition, as well as being a bargain. The Friday green fee is 550 baht, just 10 quid or 23 bucks for a quality course. Do yourself a favour and give it a try, I am sure you will love it as we do.
Alan Rothwell loves it! The boy is on fire this week and shoots another plus forty round to finish off a golfers hat trick. Nice when it all comes together, isn’t it?
Kenny also did some good work out here and a 39 is just fine. Congrats as well to our Navy buddy Doc Beard who also got his mojo workin’!
A big thanks to all who joined us this week for some great golf in Pattaya.
