Truelove Conquers All at Treasure Hill
The final week of March dawned in a foul, stormy manner, condemning Pattaya to a constant downpour but the stoic golfers of the Pattaya Links Golf Society knew better than to abandon hopes of a golf day and made their bedraggled way up the 331 to Treasure Hill to play a stableford competition from the yellow tees
A quick call to the golf gods from the organiser put paid to the rain and the whole round was played under gloomy skies but generally dry underfoot. On a good day the course is a test but today it was bearing its teeth. The rough was wet and clingy for those who ventured there but greens were a good pace for putting
Results saw three golfers on 33 points with Wayne Peppernell taking second on countback and Colin Service easing Huw Phillips into fourth on countback also. The winner was Aussie Steve Truelove with an astounding total of 39 points on a course where golfers generally are in heaven with a level par round. The near pins were won by Steve Truelove (13) and Big Phil Mitchell (17) and Peter Wilson took the consolation for the best front nine with seventeen points whilst John O’Sullivan took the back nine with seventeen splendid points also.
On a day when the timorous chose to stay in town the PLGS ventured out and thoroughly enjoyed taking up the cudgels against Treasure Hill in curiously comfortable conditions.
