The Golf Club we 17/10
Monday 13th – Rayong Green Valley – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Pierre Bietry (16) 36 points
2nd – Andy Makara (28) 35 points
3rd – Thierry Danzas (21) 34 points
3rd – Yui Bietry (8) 34 points
3rd – Wayne Cottrell (12) 34 points
The signup sheet was full once again as our regular Monday venue of Green Valley proves to be so popular. We all love this course but the only thing I still can’t get my head around is the hole numbering. I think this current system is probably working out to be the best and the flow seems to be working just fine now. The course was in great shape as usual. There have been many improvements to the cart paths over the summer months and when that is all finished, RGV will be perfect.
Scoring was certainly on the sensible side and we had a trio at 34 with Yui, Thierry and Wayne (your August Medal winner) all hitting that number. Regular Andy Makara did well on the day and his 35 was good enough to snatch a sole second. Winner, winner poulet dinner went to our long time friend
M. Pierre Bietry, the only golfer to shoot to his handicap! He’s a lucky man to have Yui as both a golf partner and a life partner. Bien joué mon ami!
Some of the Laem Chabang Crew on the first tee.
Wednesday 15th – Laem Chabang A & C – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Phil Smedley (11) 33 points
2nd – Walter Baechli (17) 32 points
3rd – Ray Powell (15) 32 points
This was a well anticipated venue as we booked this last day of the summer special over 2 months ago. The weather was near perfect and with the A and C courses on the agenda it was a golf day to look forward to. The course was in great condition and the clubhouse is coming along nicely with a date of Dec. 31 for completion. We still had the private hotel rooms to change and shower in, which was a nice change from the jammed up conditions elsewhere.
The first nine seemed to go all so well for just about everyone. The A course was forgiving and calm. And then there was the C course, a much tougher challenge with the heat of the midday sun to cope with also. It was here that many fell to only a few Stableford points on the back and the reason the final scores were probably not our best.
Phil and Ray après-golf back at the bar.
Ray Powell is back! Escaping the depths of an English winter, Ray is back with us for the season. This last week has seen many of our regulars returning to the fold so you will be seeing more familiar faces here soon. Ray had the same score as our colourful buddy Walter Baechli and with 32 points each, they share a second place spot.
Making just one more putt than the other boys, our own Golf Captain Phil Smedley rose to the top with a big red 33 circled at the top of his card. It has been a few weeks now since Phil ended up winning and good to see him back in form. Thanks for herding the cats, buddy!
