The tournament today was at the Phoenix Gold Golf Course with all the teams invited for a day out on the house as we say, the new general manager Nathawat Aksornchat (Nat) is a very approachable young man who is on a mission to get Phoenix where it should be IE supported by all the golf bars as before, and what a job he is doing, with millions being spent on the course and many more millions going to be spent it is not only a pleasure to play now but will be more so in the near future. It was a great day out and the staff should be commended for the professional way it was handled from registration to the beer and nibbles, when we finished which I might add took four hours from go to whoa which must be some sort of record for a shot gun start.
The game today was the best two stableford scores on each hole from a team of four players to keep it simple, and the scores were some very good some not so good but every golfer enjoyed their day out, it was a bit hot but with everything supplied including a free golf cart there was nothing you could complain about. There were four near pins donated by the Growling Swan, The Golf Club, The Baan Tong Tong Resort and the Billabong Golf Club. There was a hole in one from one of the Billabong regulars on the very difficult Mountain forth Eng Cotterell must have been a fantastic shot young lady well done.
Now there can only be one winner as there is one trophy which will be played annually with the same bars invited to play for this cup, the winning team today came from the 19th hole which is the new members bar and lounge at the golf course club house the players were David Smith, Andrew Spence, Bart Starink and Marijke Starink with a score of 90 points a great round of golf and your names will be the first on the trophy hope we will see you all next year. Once again a large thank you must go to Nat for his geniality and generosity for making this day happen we wish you all the best for the future.
