MOUNTAIN SHADOW GC – 8th June 2015

The Coach Plays Straight to Conquers the Mountain!


Well we left the bar in the middle of a down pour, as the heavens had opened up over Pattaya, only to be greeted by a dry course with no sign of any rain.

Not too many players at the course other than our contingent.

Playing from the Blue Tees it seemed to suit some of our players as scores were not too bad and discussion at the completion was nothing short of good. Bernie I was not listening to you!

The course was in top condition and the greens slow as per the normal.

Welcomes were handed out to Volker Buley, Simon Niven and Kim Scadden!

Mike Gosden (Mr. Six O’clock, the coach) with his 40 points he was hotter than Bucket’s BBQ on a Sunday night when Bruce calls in for dinner!

Second place went to Mark ( the Viper ) Stapleton just pipping Jim Groves with Colin Stielow beating Denis Steele on a count back.

In the bar both Rob and Rocky were rather subdued whilst in the company of Geri and Peter, finding out some time later Geri and Pete got the better of them.
