The Golf Club 12/10
Hamilton hammers the field!
Monday 12th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Kevin Hamilton (14) 34 points
2nd – Terry Pettitt (12) 32 points
T – 3rd – Fred Graham (16) 31 points
T – 3rd – Andy Makara (27) 31 points
T – 3rd – Zod Beloglavec (13) 31 points
T – 3rd – Gary Smedley (20) 31 points
We still hear a lot of grumbling about the condition of Green Valley these days, especially the greens. I guess that is why we had another smaller-than –usual turnout today to our regular Monday venue.
As it turned out, a mere 34 points took first place today whereas our average winning score is a 38 so lots of lost shots went somewhere. We had another mobbed podium as 4 guys tied for third place (what’s the deal with all these ties lately?).
Capt. Phil has his brother Gary in town this week from Australia and got on the board to share third place. We see yet another win for Kevin Hamilton and another dropping of his handicap as well. Kev is in a bit of a purple patch, especially at Green Valley!
We must also give a congratulatory note to our mate John Hutt. John had an operation back in the UK this summer but bounced back strong. John entered the Hazelmere G. C. Seniors Open with 85 players taking part, and he won it scoring 41 points playing off a 22 handicap! Great going Johnny!
The short but sinister 4th hole par-3 at Pattavia Century.
Wednesday 14th – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White Tees
A splendid day of golf was ahead of us at the ever popular Pattavia Century. The course was in great condition, not like some of us from the night before. It is an extra 15 minutes drive to get out here, but the trip through the pineapple fields is well worth it.
Our podium today was filled with TGC regulars for a change! This time the local knowledge on these tricky greens paid off as the tourists struggled with the flat stick. I think we all know the feeling, as the first few times you play here is a big learning curve for the quick greens of Pattavia.
Co-pilot Dave Ferris shared the win today with Peter Thomas, both on 37 which is a brilliant score on this course. Papa Dale and Markie also done good with respectable 34’s on the day. Well done guys!
T – 1st – Dave Ferris (22) 37 points
T – 1st – Peter Thomas (18) 37 points
T – 2nd – Dale Shier (13) 34 points
T – 2nd – Mark Wood (9) 34 points
Friday 16th – Phoenix Gold – The T.Q. Masters
Probably the most fun golf tournament in town, this was the 22nd annual T.Q. Masters hosted by The Golf Club for the oldest bar in Pattaya, The Tahitian Queen. We had a good solid field of 68 golfers out at Phoenix today, and for the full story and results please see the big write up in the papers. A big thanks to Bjarne at The Kronenberg for another beautiful Ox Leg dinner!
