Twenty seven golfers today faced the challenge to their skill, intestinal fortitude and disseminating perseverance.

Pre game comments included Fletch remarking that his game was about as enthralling as the thought of Jerry Lewis playing the lead in a live stage performance of Macbeth.

We welcomed David Fletcher, Peter Bailey, Simon Niven from Australia and Gordon Uvanile from Canada.

Playing the East and South nines from the white tees the greens were found to be very slow despite being cut and provided as much pleasure as sitting through the complete Aussie soap series Home and Away.

In the A grade Eric Black was as busy as a one armed man on the spotlight at a Pink Floyd concert in compiling thirty six points to relegate Mike Gosden to second place on the same score.

Third was Gordon Uvanile and Frank Riley rounded out the podium with both players scoring thirty three points.

Alan Sanders stood atop the B grade with thirty five points whilst the fast finishing Patrick Poussier, Jerry Dobbs and Max Bracegirdle all on thirty three completed the set.

Deefa was the happy recipient of many donations for the needy children of Pattaya and the golfers are thanked for their generosity.
