Links Golf Society 9/4

Pattaya Links Golf Society at Royal Lakeside on Mon Apr 9  S/ford

     Bren Guns Down the Field at Lakeside

Golf at Royal Lakeside can be a wonderful experience with the finely manicured course on the banks of the Bangpakong River attracting constant cooling breezes. The quality of course maintenance is unrivalled and a field of two dozen golfers from the Links Golf Society visited there on Monday, 9th  April to play a stableford competition. The field was divided into two flights at eighteen and under.

Scores are generally good here and this day it was no exception with five golfers attaining forty points or more and the whole field averaging 34 points.

In the top flight third place went to Steve Truelove with 37 points, helped in part by two-putting seventeen holes, a single putt sufficing on the other. Runner-up was a rejuvenated Phil Davies with another fine round, this time recording 41 points.

Then flight winner was Martin Patch with 42 points and his golf, though not spectacular, was a steady mix of length, accuracy and some shrewd course management.

In the second flight Tip Briney emerged from the shadows of his previous few rounds to record 40 points for third place. In second was Paul Chesney experiencing his first round at the course and he recorded a debut 42 points in style.

The flight winner and the green jacket recipient was Brendan Gilsenan who put together a sumptuous round of 44 points, again on his first visit to the course.

Near-pins went to Andy Lawlor (3), John Mason (6), John Chelo (12) and Tip Briney (15)

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)…Wayne Morrison…..21 pts

Best Back Nine ( non winners)….Stan Stewart……….20 pts
