Pattana – St
Dick Warberg conquers Pattana
Greetings golfers. This Friday the Tropical Golfers treated themselves to a visit to Pattana golf course. Not that expensive of a treat because coupons made this course reasonably affordable, but we don’t get to play there enough. It was drizzling with dark skies as the Hopefuls met for the coffee and breakfast, and a couple of little faith decided to cancel for fear of the weather. Mistake.
Pattana is a first class venue all around. Locker rooms, staff, and of certainly the golf course are all excellent. Despite overcast skies and a slight 10-minute drizzle that didn’t even stop play it was good golf weather. We got round the course in good time and gathered in the fine restaurant area to go over the results.
It was all very close, but when the counting was done Dick Warberg (Hcp 19) sneaked into first place with a respectable 34 points on a multi-step countback. Its good to see the Organizer get something back for his efforts. Ted Morris (15) took second place honors also with 34 points. Rounding out the announcements was John Pierrel (13) with 33 points. A good time was had by all.
