Links Golf Society 26/10

Beer at the Top…and Bottom

 

The Pattaya Links Golf Society ended the week with a dose of pain at Treasure Hill on Friday, 26th October. In extremely sultry conditions with the course offering little run and with greens still recovering from maintenance, therefore running at a slow pace, seven playing groups took to the yellow tees immediately on arrival.

 

Golfers enjoying a real challenge see the course as a “must play” venue and any minor success there is regarded highly. But it has to be played sensibly with an emphasis on course management skills.

 

 

With two flights, cut at eighteen and under, there was everything to play for and in the second flight Dave Arataki again found some form with a fourth place finish, albeit with 27 points. In third with 29 points was Len Jones, stewarding the day in place of the absent Maurice and Phil.

 

Second place went to Howard Bland with 30 points and the winner was Aussie Ray Cody with 32 hard earned points.

 

 

The top flight, as usual, scored better with Ed Wyckoff making his presence felt in fourth place with 32 points, one behind the consistent Japanese golfer Masa Takano. Chris Barker managed second with 34 points and an uncharacteristic “blob” on the final hole spoilt a fine card.

 

The winner with the best points total for the day was Swiss golfer Marco Beer who followed a splendid round two days previously with 38 points to take the green jacket.

 

 

Near pin awards went to returning favourite, Andrew Purdie, Ron Matthews, Ed Wyckoff and Ray Cody.

 

 

Winner …”A” flight……..Marco Beer (18)…………38 pts

2nd Place…………………….Chris Barker (13)………..34 pts

2nd Place………………….Howard Bland (19)……….30 pts

3rd Place…………………..Len Jones (29)……………….29 pts

4th Place………………….Dave Arataki (27)………….27 pts

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)……Tip Briney ………..15 pts

Best Back Nine ( non winners)…….Bill McGarvie…….17 pts

 

In the absence of the golf day gaffer, Mr Phil, the hairpieces were kept under wraps and the old favourites, the Booby Bevvies were rolled out for the day’s low marker Kevin Pross and his mate Steve Potter for the lowest nine hole score.

 

 

So it was beers all round and more importantly Beer’s all round game which took the honours at Treasure Hill.
