GROWLING SWAN 9/7
RUDY BRINGS HOME the BACON! AT PLEASANT VALLEY GOLF CLUB – MONDAY 9th JULY, 2018. STABLEFORD
By PRH Grey.
Not a large field that chose to venture out but one could say it was an enthusiastic group of golfers. Today’s trip was to Pleasant Valley, one bus and 3 cars did the job of getting all punters to the course!
Despite the fact that we were delayed, with one golfer forgetting his voucher for the day, we arrived with plenty of time to have a coffee or beer as the case may be and the first group teed off from the Blue tees on time.
The course was in fine nick, fairways were clean and freshly mowed, the rough had been trimmed and it appeared that the greens were playing true. Conditions were perfect with no sign of rain, the sun was shining and a gentle breeze offered us some relief.
Golf in Pattaya at present is suffering and the numbers that we see or don’t see tells us this. Our numbers may be down but at the very least we are putting golfers out to play.
With our numbers today we were to play one Division with three placings, all novelties are in play.
Well it was That Wild South African Rudy Regenass that took the days honors, Rudy returned to scales with an excellent 40 points. Finishing second was Takeshi Hakozaki only one point behind our leader. Third past the post is that man that has found the fountain of youth Gordon Clegg.
