Treasure Hills G.C. (Stableford)

13 turned up to be greeted with an empty course. It was a fine day that turned out very hot and humid. The course was in excellent condition and extremely good value at ThB800. They are really working hard on this course and it is turning into a  real Championship venue. It played like it and  the decision to play off the white tees which were well back added to the difficulty. Only Paul Smith handled it well with an excellent gross 75 net 73 for 35 points, aided by birdies on the final three holes, the next best being 29points.

 


Results :

1st  Paul Smith            (hcp.  2) 35 pts  

2nd Mark Stanley         (hcp.  8) 29 pts

3rd  Gordon Melia        (hcp. 17) 29 pts

 Near pins : Paul Smith, Dave Ashman and Gerry Cooney

Khao Kheow G.C. (Stableford) B&A

 

Everybody’s favourite course (well almost) attracted a field of 19 to form the 2 flights of good and aspiring to be good golfers. Continuing the recent trend, we encountered no holdups on arrival and our first 3 ball teed off on time, not catching up with another group until the final hole. Temperatures  and humidity are creeping up into the seriously leaking bracket and with very little breeze for respite there were a few participants running out of puff towards the end. Course conditions were  good with the  greens slower than usual and the fairways still quite hard and in need of some rain. A couple of very light showers passed overhead but not enough to make any difference. The weather definitely took it’s toll with only Tony Robbins with 37 points in A flight and Neil Griffin with 36 points in B flight posting par or better scores. Struggling on the back nine,  it was lucky for Neil that he amassed 23 points on the front although unfair calls of applying the brakes could be heard from one of his victim’s in the sixes. A negative mark for the golf club at  this time of year is the wheeling out of  “trainee” caddies during the school holidays for the same price of experienced personnel.

 

Results :

1st Tony Robbins         (hcp.  12) 37 pts

2nd Paul Smith            (hcp.    2) 33 pts
