Capt. Phil with Mark Wood and Masao Ishikawa back at LK Metro.
The high season still rolls on here in Patts and the weather is nothing to complain about. All of our signup sheets are full these days so please plan in advance and let us know where you want to play and we will get you up on the board. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org, it’s easy!
Green Valley is in great shape these days and always a popular venue for our Monday golf. We had a very straightforward 1-2-3 today and they took home all of Phil’s handsome man vouchers.
Ishi has been a very consistent player these days and has been in the frame on many occasions this past month. Today was another exhibition of good, solid play to give Ishi third spot on the podium with a 37 point card. Mark Wood found himself sandwiched betwixt a couple of 16 handicappers to claim second with a fine 38.
Jimmy Dundon had the best card of the day and nobody could beat his 39. Jim is getting a lot of practice out here at RGV with Mr. Mascari and the Donovans gang and today used the knowledge to his benefit. Jeez, he even got Stevie out of the house to come down for a drink!
Wednesday 2nd – Khao Kheow A & C – Stableford – Yellow Tees
1st – Terry Dyer (15) 38 points
2nd – Fred Graham (16) 37 points
T-3rd – Kenny Aihara (5) 36 points
T-3rd – Mark Wood (9) 36 points
It was to be a long day out at KKCC this Wednesday, not so much time wise, but length wise as playing from the yellow tees proved quite exhausting. We all enjoy a good test of golf, but the course beat the field today and only two blokes shot better than their handicap.
Sure they’re smilin’, they’re back at the bar! Fred, Terry, Mark & Kenny.
Condition of this Pete Dye course was just great, as was the 950 baht green fee. The weather started out gorgeous, but as the day wore on the heat started to beat us down. It ended up being a good day to have those arm sleeves on, I am getting enough of those funny red blotches on the forearms! Pass the SPF 40 please!
Anyway, let’s see who did good out there and posted the big numbers. Two of our regulars were in the hunt, but Mark Wood and Kenny Aihara both came up a bit short and still turned in respectable 36’s on the cards. Aussie Fred Graham didn’t let the heat get him down and posted a promising 37 pointer. The day was all for Terry Dyer, and a 38 at this length is a superb round so a well earned victory it was. Nice shootin’ Mr. Dyer.
Friday 26th – Silky Oaks – Stableford – Yellow Tees
1st – Mark Wood (9) 39 points
2nd – Jim Dundon (16) 38 points
3rd – Blake Hanna (16) 36 points
What a lovely track to finish the week on. Silky Oaks is steadily climbing the ranks of popularity of Pattaya golf courses with the lads here at The Golf Club. For myself, the elevation changes make this a bit of a cross between Green Valley and St. Andrews, and with a combination like that you cannot go wrong.
Condition of the course was very nice indeed, once you get around all the other construction that is going on with the surrounding areas. The weather was just fine as well and starting early left us with just a little of that afternoon heat.
It was another good round for Blake Hanna (remember he shot a 43 last week!) as the 16 handicapper is getting into the groove with Thailand golf. Blake still has another month here so watch out for more from him.
Looks like Jimmy and Mark swapped around their Monday scorecards as this time it was Mr. Wood with the 39 and the win. Our triple Monthly medal winner did well here today and the silky smooth Scotsman bags a deserved win at Silky Oaks! With a week’s tally of 38-36-39 and three podium places, Mark Wood was our best golfer this week! That’s got to be good for a free Pork Chop dinner don’t you think? See ya on the next Steak Night Markie!
By the way, just heard our mate Colin Davis just bagged an Ace on the B-8 par 3 at Khao Kheow, so congratulations on that one Colin…it’s the best one!
