Takeshi & Thientong Have A Pleasant Day!
With five groups on the Starting Sheet we headed off to Pleasant Valley on this fine and hot Monday morning and welcomed back Tony Cook and Lorraine Percy from Australia along with local newcomers Ying & Pancake. Our first group got away just a few minutes before our scheduled 10.05am tee time and with no-one in sight ahead of us we proceeded at a good pace. The golf course was not in as good shape as it usually is with some very “ordinary” greens and your writer did struggle adapting to things after my recent Laser Eye Surgery but had an enjoyable day anyway with good company. With no hold ups we managed to complete our round in three hours & fifty minutes.
In the men’s Flight it was Takeshi Hakozaki who stole the show and won with a fine 38 points while also winning all three novelty awards. That man Christian Boysen was once again on the podium and finished second with 34 points and Lionel Rowles took out third spot with 31 points. With several ladies in the field we had a separate Ladies Flight which was well won by Thientong Charoenrung who scored an excellent 39 points.
1st – Takeshi Hakozaki (14) – 38 points
2nd – Christian Boysen (15) – 34 points
3rd – Lional Rowles (36) – 31 points
1st – Thientong Charoenrung (18) – 39 points
5th – Takeshi Hakozaki

Wednesday, 20th May – Eastern Star – Stableford
Oddur Wins In A Tight Finnish!
Not huge numbers but a quality field for a long awaited visit to Eastern Star and the weather was fine but quite hot. We got away right on time at 10.00am and with the course practically deserted we were able to get around the course in the very good time of three hours & forty five minutes. The golf course was looking good although some fairways were a bit dry and the greens were quite ok.
With two golfers on 33 points a count back was required to decide the winner and that resulted in first place being awarded to Oddur Olafsson (18 point back nine, 12 points on the last 6 holes & 7 points on the last 3 holes) with Thientong Charoenrung (18 point back nine, 12 points on the last 6 holes & 5 points on the last 3 holes) in second spot. The colourful Walter Baechli finished third with 32 points.
1st – Oddur Olafsson (13) – 33 points
2nd – Thientong Charoenrung (18) – 33 points
3rd – Walter Baechli (15) – 32 points
18th – Thientong Charoenrung
Friday, 15th May – Phoenix, Mountain & Ocean – Stableford
Christian Wins Yet Again
Once again it was our “Friday’s at Phoenix” game and your writer sat this one out but we had a reasonable amount of players on the Starting Sheet and welcomed back Neil Skilton from the UK. After the delicious breakfast at the Phantom Bar the golfers boarded the new Phantom Golf Society bus, now equipped with a quality Sound & Video System to entertain them and in next to no time they were at Phoenix. They teed off around 11.00am on another hot day and it was reported that the course was again in fine “nick” with the greens getting better.
Yet again it was the Boss, Christian Boysen who stole the show and was the winner with a fine 38 points, 3 points ahead of big Steve Truelove and Dave Neal came third on 32 points.
1st – Christian Boysen (13) – 38 points
2nd – Steve Truelove (9) – 35 points
3rd – Dave Neal (24) – 32 points
