New Satita Blasts 43 points at Bangpakong
This Monday started as a bright, sunny day when 18 golfers set out from “Links Bar” for the trip to Bangpakong. A slightly longer trip than most courses we play, but in our Mini bus we had an easy and pleasant trip up the “7”.
This course was described by another writer as “a feel good course” and so it is.As this scribe had a disastrous day at another unnamed course on Saturday, I needed to get back some confidence, and Bangpakong provided that, Phew!
We have had 2 trips here recently and on each occasion found it in immaculate condition.All comments afterwards were nothing but positive, fairways with good lies, rough not too rough and greens that were not crazy fast and ran true.
Last time here we had a rush of 40 plus points. Today there was only two. New Satita , still in great form ran away with it by 3 points from Steve Truelove, also having a good run lately. 3rd and 4th was decided by countback, with John Chelo edging out Gary Bolger.
Only 2 near pins ( someone forgot to take them from the bar, who? Me), but only one of them was claimed, that being Takeshi Hakozaki on hole 13.
Non winners Best 9s were decided on countback.
