Treasure Hill – 9th March, 2015


Wayco and Akapulco enjoy the spoils !

Stableford competition at Treasure Hill was today’s challenge as our field of 27 arose to a very humid morning in Pattaya. We had a host of visitors. Keith Buchanan, Biarne Kjar, Andrew Baker, Stuart McKenzie, Mark Henkel, Colin Styelo, Frank Riley, Eric Black and John Coetzee were welcomed and boarded the buses to the infamous ‘Crocodile Rock’.

We notice in the local mail golf reports, most players who take on this great course usually struggle to record good scores and to a man, we were determined to fare better on this challenge. With the humidity in Chonburi cranking up daily, today’s outing proved to be a tough test for us all.

As with our recent visits, the course was presented in fabulous condition and the greens were true paced on every hole. The caddies were loads of fun and efficient. Of course, there were numerous hard-luck stories. Mark Henkel showed he can airmail the golf ball but sometimes puts the wrong zipcode on it.

Bob Akapita and Kev Waycott returned to some semblance of form for a win in their respective grades. Count-backs were required to sort the chasing pack. Eric Black snookered Martin Todd   whilst Dobbsie pipped Michael Catillon.

1st   Kevin Waycott (10)  36 pts
