Links Golf Society 20/4
John Coetzee Blitz’s Pleasant Valley
Songkran finished, everyone dried out, and some tired out, and golf was on again.
Thirteen golfers saddled up for a trip to Pleasant Valley to see what awaits us at this course that can be very good or a little shabby.
Unfortunately, the majority opinion was that it is the latter, and the price of 1850 bht all in is too high for a course that needs some TLC.
Fairways were quite ok, but the greens varied in pace from hole to hole, so maybe that can be fixed soon.
Weather was, of course, hot. However a short, welcome shower of rain cooled things for a while. But a couple of players found conditions just fine.
Within hours of setting foot on Thailand soil,
John Coetzee blitzed the field with a magnificent round of 43 points. Obviously no jet lag from Perth (Australia).
Tip Briney has had an interesting week. On Wednesday he set a new record for the highest score to win the “wig” with 31 points. He scored only 9 points on the back nine.
Today he has taken second place with a terrific 37 points. No crashing this time.
Peter Henshaw returned to us after an absence and recorded 36 points for third spot and Phil Davies was thereabouts again filling fourth place with 35 points.
Best Front Nine ( non winners)….Mike Tottenham …..21 pts
Best Back Nine ( non winners)….Dom Downy………..19pts

In case you don’t recognize the wearer of the “wig”, yes it’s Bill Copeland.
Last week the Green Jacket, this week the “wig’. Seems to be a trend here.
