Links Golf Society 25/6

 An Absolute Joy! –Laem Chabang  Mon  Jun  25  S/ford 

 

The headline says it all.!  If you are in any doubt check with any of the three dozen Pattaya Links Golf Society golfers who had a memorable day at Laem Chabang on Monday, 25th June.

 

In its wisdom the club has introduced a magnificent promotion for PSC members for Mondays where the rate is even less than the normal midweek “Sports Day” deal, thereby giving the majority of Pattaya’s golfers an opportunity to play this premier course at a splendidly favourable rate. PHX and GV please take note!

 

With the closure of the Mountain Nine for refurbishment the Lakes and Valley Nines were in play – B and C to most of us and the course was in excellent condition throughout, with consistent greens running at 9 on the “stimp” and the weather was an extra bonus, with a light breeze adding some comfort.

 

The large field was divided into two flights at sixteen and under and, with a quarter of the field playing off handicaps of ten or less, some fine golf was on show.

 

In the second flight Dave Jarvis – wig winner last time out – showed better form with 32 points taking third place from Tip Briney on countback. He was only one point behind the runner up, Kym Richardson (33) but a further four points behind the flight winner Irishman Derek Phillips, winning with an excellent 37 points.

 

The top flight saw an all-American podium as Pete Seil took third place with 37 points, and Tommy Marshall take second with 39 points, whilst registering the best gross of the day, 75. The flight winner was Tom Herrington with an impressive forty points and he was duly awarded with the Green Jacket back at the Links.

 

Near Pins were won by Len Jones (B5), Mike Ehlert (B5), Dave Arataki (C5) and Graham Pratt (C8).

 

Consolation awards went to John Pierrel for his best front nine of 21 points whilst Garry Barker took the back nine honours with 21 points also.

 

Winner …”A” flight…….Tom Herrington (16)…………..40 pts

2nd Place……………………Tommy Marshall (6)………….39 pts

3rd Place…………………….Pete Seil (6)…………………..37 pts

 

Winner…”B” flight……..Derek Phillips (20)……………..37 pts

2nd Place…………………Kym Richardson (19)………….33 pts

3rd Place…………………Dave Jarvis (19)………………..32 pts c/back

 

The most popular award of the day was the “wig” which was thoroughly deserved by Colin Service, who has been sweeping all before him in recent weeks. Karma is a wondrous thing Colin!

 

Without doubt this had been the finest golf day of the year with the Links and more opportunities to play the course have already been taken with bookings already in for July and August. Because of the exclusivity of the deal please make sure you have your PSC cards when we visit there next, on 2nd July.
