Imagine Scores If the Greens Were Fine – At Green Valley on Mon Jul 9  S/ford

The Pattaya Links Golf Society visited Green Valley on a beautifully fine day on Monday, 9th July. The course was in excellent condition but was let down badly by some wooly, rough-cut greens which were patchy and inconsistent. Fairways were fully covered and bunkers were well prepared.

 

Thirty two golfers filled the booking sheet and managed to get away on time. It soon became obvious that high scores would be the order of the day as, at the turn, a quarter of the field had collected scores of par or better.

The field was divided into two flights, cut at eighteen and under and ultimately a third of the golfers broke par or better.

In the top flight Wayne Peppernell’s crafty 39 points took third place, with Paul Bray recording 40 points for second, on his return to the group.

The flight winner was Phil Davies who is currently in top form at the moment, this time adding another forty-one point score to his already impressive CV with the group since his return from Wales a month or so ago.

In the second flight Ian Corica recorded 39 points for third place, with Steve Baker’s flattering 41 points in second place. Leading the field off and back in the clubhouse was Mick Coghlan whose 42 points was enough to blow the field away in style.

Consolation prizes went to Toby Glass for his best front nine of 20 points and Lachlan Gotz for his similar score on the back nine.

Near pins were won by Phil Davies (5), Paul Bray (8) and Dave Arataki (13) with the sixteenth retaining its modesty throughout.

Back in the clubhouse Phil had his usual wicked fun with the “wig” and it eventually found its way to the head of a nonplussed Ray Wilkes on his debut round with the group, though the usual suspects again “got away with it”.

 

It had been a fine day at Green Valley but imagine what scores may have been if the greens matched the quality of the rest of the course. One day we’ll be there and everything will be grand, we’re sure!
