Burapha G.C. (A and C courses) Stableford
We only play Burapha during the low season when the summer promotion prices kick in, and normally our local resident players look forward to returning here. However, this being Songkran week only 10 players turned up for our first visit of the year, with most regulars having already made their escape from Pattaya. We were allocated to play the A and C nines, but our tee off time was delayed slightly, due to a shortage of caddies. The course was generally in good shape and the greens were quick and true, even though a violent storm and heavy rain had hit the course the previous day. We elected to play off the blue tees, but several players found the course excessively long, and the scores on the day reflected that. No player played to their handicap and a countback was needed to give Steve Durey the top podium position ahead of Jerry Waselenkof, both with 33 points.
1st Steve Dury (hcp. 17) 33 points
2nd Jerry Waselenkof (hcp. 17) 33 points
3rd Colin Greig (hcp. 10) 29 points
Only 2 near pins were hit : Tony Robbins and PJ Redmond

Bangphra G.C. (Stableford)
Only nine players today, for what is normally one of the most popular venues on our schedule. John Graham made a welcome return to form to take the overall win beating Gerry Cooney on a countback, both finishing with 37 points. Gerry must be one of the unluckiest golfers in the Bunker Boys society when it comes to count backs, perennially losing out, our maybe it’s just an age thing, losing steam on the back nine! It was Colin Greig’s last game today, as he prepared to make his annual return to the U.K., but his consistent play throughout the month has put him in pole position in April’s Golfer of the Month competition. With the cancellation of Friday’s game, the contenders now have only four games left to catch him, and prevent him from taking his second consecutive award.
1st John Graham (hcp. 11) 37 points
2nd Gerry Cooney (hcp. 14) 37 points
3rd Mark Stanley (hcp. 11) 35 points
Near pins : Colin Greig Gerry Cooney, John Graham and Mark Stanley
Friday 19th April 2013
We decided to cancel today’s fixture as the Pattaya Songkran madness reached it’s crescendo, and all sane people (well, those who had foolishly decided to stay in Pattaya) stayed indoors.
The Bunker Boys are a PSC affiliated golf society, who now play out of The Ranch bar on Pattaya 3rd Road (in front of the fire station, and almost opposite the Buffalo Bar). We play three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so if you enjoy a fun day out, and a friendly but competitive golf competition why not come and join us. We meet at The Ranch at 9 a.m. for breakfast and transportation, and new players are always welcome. Contact “Buff” on 086 046 5091 or 080 605 5663 for all enquiries.
