The Golf Club 03/07
The Golf Club 29th June – 3rd July
Happy Birthday to T.G.C.!
Monday 29th – Green Valley – Monthly Medal – White Tees.
1st – Kenny Aihara (3) net 70
2nd – Paul Tudor (5) net 72
3rd – Charles Tregurtha (7) net 73
Wow! Kenny does it again! For the very first time in our 8 year history, one man has won 4 stars on his shirt for 4 Monthly Medal wins and it is no surprise to see it is Mr. Aihara. That is a run of great golf and as consistent as Kenny is, it really was just a matter of time. Way to go Kenny, we know a 5th is on the cards for next year! Pretty soon you will have as many Antigua’s as Dave Ferris!

Wednesday 1st – Greenwood A&B – White Tees
1st – Ben Denham (3) 37 points
2nd – Kenny Aihara (3) 34 points
3rd – Steve Zeigler (13) 32 points
We haven’t been out here to Greenwood in quite some time and it was good to get back to this lovely golf course. Like Pattavia and Treasure Hills, it is another 15 minutes up the 331 but so good when you do finally get here.
Visiting Floridian Steve Zeigler did well today and found his form for third. Once again, it is Kenny up on the podium as last week he was absent from any victories thus giving the other lads a shot. Ben Denham was the story of the day as he blew away the field with a 37 out here, so well played to Ben for a great round off just a 3!
Friday 3rd – Pattavia Century – 2-Man Scr.- White Tees.
1st – Billy Eyles/Peter Rogers net 61.8
2nd – Freddy Graham/Nick Handscombe 63.6
3rd – Barry Collier/Ron Robertson 64.5
Today we celebrated the 8th birthday of The Golf Club a day early as the 4th fell on a weekend. Chu had the Weber BBQ cleaned and ready for action when we returned from our 2-Man Rainbow Scramble at Pattavia. Our famous Clubhouse Ribs were on the menu as well as Beef Tacos al Trevino with our fresh salsa, Bubba’s pulled pork, Johnsonville Brats, Speith’s Sliders, Buffalo Wings and loads of sides. Nobody leaves this place hungry!
It was a quick trip out as the last 7 kilo’s of road has improved greatly and we had little problem dealing with Amata as last week was a nightmare through this junction. You just never know! Time out was 55 minutes and back about the same, but it is well worth it once you get here. Apart from a sizzling one hour stretch in the middle, weather was just great and a perfect afternoon breeze kicked up for the back nine play.
The golf course was in top shape, it really is worth that little extra bit of a drive to get out here because it is such a good track. Greens are probably the fastest and most treacherous in Pattaya, but that is what makes this place fun!
This is a great course for a Scramble, and when you throw in that Rainbow format (6 red, 6 white and 6 blue tees) it makes for some interesting strategic moves. For once, my fellow TGC partner Adam and I found ourselves at the finishing 4 holes with all our drives in and playing 3 reds and a blue in hand. As hot as Adam’s putter was, I certainly dragged him down to my level.
Third Place went to Barry Collier and Ron (R2) Robertson with a decent score of 64.5 and second was a card from Freddy Graham and Nicky Handscombe with a 63.6 circled on top. But the big winners were the defending Champions Peter Rogers (U.S.A.) & Billy Eyles (England) who ham & egged their way around this tough track to reclaim the top prize with a hot 61.8 Both will receive our legendary Antigua shirts monogrammed for the event as well as a Steak Night dinner of their choice.
Near Pins went to Peter Rogers (4th hole), Mark Wood (7th hole), Nick Handscombe (13th hole) and lastly Steve Ellison on the 17th. Nicky also took the longest putt on the 18th of 26 feet and Kenny Aihara had the long drive nailed down on the 9th. All of these technical prizes win pork chop dinners on the BBQ for another day. Thanks to all who joined us and we hope the 4th was just as good for you!
