Hookey a Runaway Winner at The Mountain
Many around Town are asking “ where are all the golfers?” As with many of the Golf Societies in Pattaya at the moment, we are recording a large slump in numbers turning out for a game. It seems only a couple of weeks ago we had 2 days of 44 or so starters.
Today we managed to round up just 8 players to try out the testing Mt. Shadow course. Quality not quantity was the order of the day. Well, that’s how it looked on the start sheet.
The reality was somewhat different with only two golfers fitting that description on the day. And of those two, only Garry Hookey, with a wonderful 40 points, managed to better handicap, 6 points clear of Steve Truelove who once again gained a placing with his 34 points.
We, not long ago had some critical words about this course, but in the past couple of visits much work has been done and now it is in very good condition. The rough has been trimmed to a playable level, the fairways well grassed and the greens are playing well. A couple of visiting friends, one for the first time, complimented the course and were more than happy with the greens. So well done, Mt. Shadow management.
Oh! Must mention.. They have brand new towels in the locker room.
The Caddies forecast a number of times “rain coming”. Just like the Weather Bureau they eventually got it right. As we sat in the Restaurant the heavens opened, and kept up a heavy downpour until we neared Pattaya. Lucky !
With only two places to pay, presentations were quick and easy. Garry deservedly got to wear the Green Jacket for the photo op, while there was no doubt about yours truly donning the “Wig” for the first, and hopefully, the last time.
Winner……Garry Hookey (19)……..40 pts
2nd Place….Steve Truelove (8)………34pts
