Treasure Hill Preserves its Modesty on Fri July 20 s/ford

 

Twenty four hours notice of a cancellation by Khao Kheow is hardly the best preparation for a revised trip to Treasure Hill, but the Pattaya Links Golf Society regulars are stoic enough to realise a good days’ golf could still be had and travelled the 331 in fine spirits on Friday, 20th July.

 

The course was well populated, with two other PSC Golf Societies in front of our groups, having originally booked here. The course was in good shape, although the tee boxes are still under repair so the group played from the yellow tees. Elsewhere this would ease the test but at Treasure Hill accuracy, not length is paramount of course.

 

The greens were quite challenging with a little pace and some tough pin placements and consequently scores were modest only.

 

In fourth place was Japanese golfer Masaaki Sugaya with 29 points, losing third place to Phil Davies on countback. Similarly, the top two needed a countback to decide the victor and Wayne Peppernell’s efforts on the back nine fell just a little short behind Paul Smith who took the win with 32 points and a best gross of the day of 78.

 

Near pins went to Graeme Dunn (6), David Beames (13) and Paul Smith (17) whilst the long second hole stayed unsullied throughout.

 

The consolation awards went to Bobby Shirkey for his best front nine of 16 points and Darren Beavers for his best back nine of 17 points.

 

Winner ………………Paul Smith (2)……………….32 pts c/back

2nd Place……………….Wayne Peppernell (16)……..32 pts

3rd Place………………..Phil Davies (10)……………..29 pts c/back

4th Place……………….Masa Sugaya (21)………….29 pts

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)……Bobby Shirkey ……..16 pts

Best Back Nine ( non winners)…….Darren Beavers……..17 pts

 

The wig was won by a blushing Ray Byron and the day’s “silly hat” special went to Greg Proctor for the poorest nine total of the day.

 

It was modesty all round at Treasure Hill with the course keeping its secrets for another day and modest scores only being recorded. Thanks Khao Kheow!
