The Bunker Boys 12/10
Monday, October 12, Pattavia G.C. — Stableford —
We arrived — after suffering through the roadworks on 331 — to find the course virtually deserted. The traffic jam was soon forgotten as the course was in excellent condition and the weather was perfect.
Gerry Cooney was hoping to continue his streak of wins at this lovely track but Tony Robbins had other plans. Gerry put in a fine performance playing to his handicap, but Tony bettered his by three strokes to take first place with 39 points. The other nine Bunker Boys turned in an average stableford score of 32.
The three courses out on this side of town are some of the best in the area; all are in good nick and great value. If only we could commute by helicopter.
1st Tony Robbins (17) 39 pts
2nd Gerry Cooney (16) 36 pts
3rd Jimmy Carr (17) 35 pts

Wednesday, October 14, Bangpra G.C. — Stableford —
Management is obviously thinking ahead to the ” Big Tournament ” that will be held here in a few weeks as there was a lot of work being done to get the course in tip top shape. Of course, I speak of the 10th Annual John Preddy Memorial Tournament. The Preddy Tournament is always a fun outing for Pattaya’s golf societies; an event everyone has marked on their calendars, Nov. 23rd.
As the Bunker Boys are planning to take home the trophy, we were out in force today getting the lay of the land. As usual, the course was in good condition, but it was a bit hectic having to dodge all the groundskeepers.
1st Geoff Cox (15) 35 pts
2nd Tony Robbins (17) 33 pts

4th Geoff Parker (13) 31 pts

Friday, October 16, Parichat G.C. — Rainbow —
Please be aware that you would be ill-advised to arrange a Rainbow competition at the new Parichat G.C.. The issue is the t-boxes, or lack thereof. There are no yellow or silver tees and, more consequentially, there are two-sets of white tees in which you play one set on the front and a different set on the back. Who has ever heard of such a thing ?!! The spacing from black to white is all out of whack with some whites a mere ten yards placed forward and others some fifty yards. Having said this, it is somewhat of an interesting course and could undoubtedly be topped up with a windmill.
Tony has been keeping his head down and turned in three fine performances this week averaging 37 stableford points for the week. Two first place and one second place finishes. Way to go Tony. Cut him! Cut him!
