Pattaya Links Golf Society……Bangpakong…..Mon. Dec.3….S/ford

 

Forty? That’ll Do Nicely

 

High Season must be here as forty golfers turned out to play with the Pattaya Links Golf Society at Bangpakong Riverside on Monday, 3rd December. As usual the course was in wonderful condition with weather to match and if ever there was a day for high scoring surely this was it.

 

Playing in eight groups and two flights, with the cut at eighteen and under, good progress was made until the fourth hole when inevitably play was held up at the first par three. Why do Thai courses have par threes following par fives? – holdups are guaranteed.

 

However the PLGS are made of stern stuff and continued on as if nothing had happened. The two flights saw some excellent scores with the first flight headed by an excellent round from Brian Talbot who took the victory with forty points.

 

In second was Huw Phillips with 39 points, one ahead of Maurice Roberts on 38 points. The minor places went to Vincent Smyth with 36 points and Tony Browne taking fifth on countback from Doug Crowe with 35 points.

 

The second flight saw better scores. In fifth place was Larry Slattery with 39 points, losing out on fourth to Stan Stewart on countback. Third place went to Jim Ferris with forty excellent points but he lost runner-up place to Brian Gabe on countback.

 

The flight winner and recipient of the green jacket was Dave Arataki with some fine golf giving him 41 points.

 

Near pins went to Doug Crowe (4), Brian Orr (7), Merle Humphreys (13) and George Muller (16).

 

The best front nine award went to Danish golfer Nils-Petr Kristensen with 21 points whilst the best back nine award went to Colin Service for his 19 points, won on countback.

 

At the other end of the scale was Don Carmody’s wig contender of 21 points and Mick Coghlan’s poor nine hole score of 10 points.

 

What a fine start to the holiday season this day wss, High standards have been set. Up to you!
