The Golf Club 24/08
Easy wins for Otterman!
Monday 24th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees.
1st – John Hutt (22) 36 points
2nd – Adrian Dembrinski (21) 34 points
T – 3rd – Stephen Dunn (0) 33 points
T – 3rd – Jimmy Dundon (17) 33 points
T – 3rd – Gary Emmett (18) 33 points
First off, Bam dropped by to remind us of the annual Jesters Children’s Fair on Sunday the 6th at the Regents School from 11-5. With music, great food and many stalls and events it is a great day out, and you don’t need to have kids to attend! This is a huge charity event in Pattaya so if you need a ride out, just give us a call and we will get you there.
Back to the golf, and 3 at 33 we haven’t seen in a long time, but today was an auspicious (not suspicious) day for us. You see, our address on LK Metro is 33/133, so the numbers all clicked! I digress, it was a fine day for golf once again here at Green Valley and good numbers as 6 groups went out today.
Not the best scoring we have seen, but one of us managed to get to his handicap number at least. With Stephen, Jimmy and Gazza all in that 33 club, it was only Adrian Dembrinski at 34 points to bridge the gap. John Hutt was once again on the top of the heap and his 36 point round was the best of the day!
Tuesday 25th – Khao Kheow B & C – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Michael Otterman (17) 35 points
T -2nd – Jimmy Dundon (17) 29 points
T -2nd – Ken Sorensen (15) 29 points
Only one guy got more than 30 Stableford points out there today? Are you kiddin’ me? I’m just sayin’! We all know that Khao Kheow can be a mother of a course on some days, and I guess this was one of those days. Sounds like it ate ‘em alive but I wasn’t there to count the bodies.
Anyway, 29 points was good enough to tie for third and Jimmy Dundon and Ken Sorensen did just that. Blowing away the field with a 6-stroke victory was visiting Swedish-Israeli-American Michael Otterman who was the only golfer to tame this Pete Dye track. The man with 5 languages under his belt (I’m really not jealous, really) took control on the back nine as his iron play was the key factor.
Thursday 27th – Burapha C & D – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Michael Otterman (17) 43 points
2nd – Darryl Evans (22) 37 points
3rd – Ken Sorensen (15) 36 points
The Great Burapha was our golfing destination today and it was an eagerly anticipated event, with 24 golfers trekking to the tees. The C & D nines were on the agenda and the slightly overcast skies made for an absolutely perfect day.
We love this golf course, it is definitely one of the best in Pattaya and host to many Asian Tour events, which makes this a must play for the first time visitor. You can always count on Burapha to be in excellent shape, and it was. There were 4 or 5 guys who were playing here for the first time and commented how good the condition and the layout was.
We see Ken Sorensen back up on the podium, and with 36 points he has managed a 7 stroke improvement on his round on Tuesday at Khao Kheow! Nice shootin’ Kenny, and well played to Darryl Evans who ended up one shot better on 37 for second place merits.
Story of the week must be Michael Otterman, who wins again today and his 43 is once again 6 strokes ahead of the next guy! Those approach shots were his saviour and left short putts that were mostly made. That’s great golf Michael, and a great way to end you holiday in Pattaya. Well played my friend and see you in November when you escape the Swedish winter!
Thanks to all who joined us this week for another 3 rounds of perfect golf.
