Hanrahan Kicks Off High Season

 

The Pattaya Links Golf Society kicked of high season with a visit to Pleasant Valley with forty golfers on Friday, 2nd November. It has always been PLGS policy to reward courses that offer deals/discounts in preference to those who don’t and the voucher scheme here, which applies for PSC members certainly represents good value.

 

The course was in good condition with some damp areas on fairways but greens were running well. With lower humidity of late an excellent day’s friendly competition golf was in prospect.

 

 

The large field was divided into two flights, cut at eighteen and under and the top flight, with seven single figure handicappers, had their work cut out to succeed. In fourth place it took a countback to decide the minor place with Maurice Roberts coming fourth with 35 points. In third was Liam Bennett with 36 points, one point behind Ray Cody on his final round this trip.

 

The flight winner was Ian Pope, returning 39 points (75 gross) on a short “R&R” trip, enroute to Sri Lanka for a dose of Test Match cricket.

 

 

In the second flight Margaret Stanton nudged Steve Baker into fourth on countback with 34 points leaving her two points behind the second placed golfer Stan Stewart. The flight winner and green jacket recipient was Jerry Hanrahan with a fine 40 point return.

 

 

Near pins went to Dave Arataki (5), Alan Cauldwell (8) and Ian Pope (13, 17)

2nd Place…………………..Stan Stewart (20)……………..36 pts

3rd Place………………….. Margaret Stanton (30)………..34 pts c/back

The consolation awards saw the wig presented to Martin Billsborrow on his long awaited return to the group and Tip Briney taking the silly hat for his low scoring back nine,

 

But it could have gone elsewhere because, on a lighter note, recent form-man Mike Firkin had one of those days. When others were climbing the ladder to success he managed to step on two snakes. His Christmas wish list is now complete with his Monopoly of a few weeks back he is now anticipating a box of Snakes and Ladders! Enjoy Mike!
