The Bunker Boys 28/09
Mountain Shadow G.C. — Stableford
The ” Silver Bird ” — P.J. Redmond — glides home with a smooth 37 points to take first place at the always challenging Mountain Shadow G.C.. The rest of the field didn’t fair so well averaging only 30 stableford points.
The course was in good shape and the recent rains seems to have contributed to the blossoming of many of the flowering shrubs and trees. A really pretty place to spend the afternoon hitting that little white ball.
1st P.J. Redmond (26s) 37 pts
2nd Geoff Cox (15) 35 pts cb
3rd Tony Berry (12) 35 pts

Wednesday, September 30, BangPakong Riverside C.C. — Stableford
Geoff Williams picked the perfect day / the perfect track to join the Bunker Boys for a round of golf in fun city. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, and Riverside is truly a Country Club in every sense of the word — well, not really. It isn’t members only — thankfully. Geoff took advantage of the beautiful weather / beautiful course to post 34 points for third place, and topped it off with a near pin. Welcome back Geoff.
It may be a bit of a hike up the motorway to reach this lovely course but, for most of the Bunker Boys, it’s always worth the drive.
1st Geoff Parker (15) 37 pts
2nd Jimmy Carr (18) 36 pts
3rd Geoff Williams (13) 34 pts
Near Pins: Geoff Williams, Jimmy Carr
Friday, October 2, Crystal Bay G.C. C & A — Stableford
” Steady Eddie ” — Geoff Parker — posts a very commendable 42 points to take first place at CB. Ian Milne was right on his heels with 40 points, and Jimmy Carr wasn’t far off the pace with 38.
Before departing The Ranch, the conversation centered on our high expectations of being able to play the B-course for the first time in what seems like years. Wasn’t to be — still under repair. Oh well, C & A were in decent shape — fairways softening up and turning green, bunkers raked, and the greens running slow but true. The consensus back at The Ranch was good course / good value.
1st Geoff Parker (15) 42 pts

3rd Jimmy Carr (18) 38 pts
4th Les Hall (23) 35 pts
