Pleasant Valley GC – 9th April 2015
Fred Cuypers finishes on Top
Despite the exodus from Pattaya due to the approaching Songkran we had two busloads of players looking forward to the game.
Dave Fletcher was welcomed for a brief stay in Pattaya and Fred Cuypers farewelled heading back to Australia.
Hot weather greeted the players carts were not permitted on the fairways whilst the greens were slower than a politician’s promise coming to fruition.
Fred Cuypers sparkling like the duco on a new Ferrari, handed in thirty nine points to take first place.
Pierre Cere took second spot on a count back over Marc Henkel both players scoring thirty seven points.

Our resident hound Deefa was once again on hand to collect donations from the generous punters and they are thanked for their efforts.
The GS is a friendly golf outlet and caters for and encourages all golfers male and female to have a hit at any of our weekly outings. We generally play Mondays and Thursdays at one of the many fine golf courses in and around Pattaya. Please contact Peter Grey if you are interested on 0861 503086.

The Growling Swan also caters to the bowls enthusiasts. Bus transport departs the GS on Wednesdays at 10 AM to play at Cocos on undercover synthetic greens and on Sundays at the same time for open grass bowling at The Retreat. Please contact Paul Rennison on 0843 454005 if you wish to partake. The cost including return bus transport, bowling fees and a hot lunch is less than 400 baht so great value for a day out.
