Tropical Golf 26/10
PSC Golf from Tropical Golf Group
Friday, 26 October, 2018 Treasure Hill – St
Mashi Takes First Place
Another fine Friday morning in Pattaya, and the Tropical golfers gathered at BJ’s Holiday Lodge on Soi 3, near Beach Road. Fortified with coffee or breakfast, we hoped to play well at the always challenging Treasure Hill.
Treasure Hill offers a great green fee, caddie fee, and cart rate that enticed almost everyone to ride the course today. The caddies must love this all in rate as they rarely need drag a pull cart around the course. I’m sure they would be as disappointed as the golfers if this promotion is discontinued.
The recent rains left the course a little soggy, so drives tended to stop near where they landed, denying the players the benefit of much roll. However, lift clean and place, through the green, gave the golfers a little advantage. The greens were slow, and uphill putts required a pretty good rap. The weather cooperated, providing some sunshine and only a few sprinkles of rain and an excellent day for golf. Our timing was good, and on the drive back to Pattaya, the weather took a turn for the worse, and we motored through an afternoon rain storm.
Back at BJ’s the players enjoyed a drink and grub before the presentation. No player was able to play to their handicap today. The first place winner on the day was Mashi Kaneta with 34 points, playing off a course handicap of 16. Second place went to Dave Cooper (27) with 33 points. Daryl Evans (25) and Don Carmody (29), claimed third and fourth place, both finishing with 32 points. Congratulations to all the winners.
