Pattaya Country Club – Medal
Mikito Hoists Monthly Mug
Its time again for the Tropical Golf Monthly Mug. Its is a fine container to hold beverages of all sorts, and highly coveted. A smaller than usual group had many thinking the odds might favor them this day and, there was much optimism before the round.
Playing stroke play at Pattaya Country Club off the white tees the groups were soon on their way. For a change there was little worry about the weather, and conditions were fine with partly cloudy and steady breeze. PCC remains a work in progress. The back 9 greens are recently cored and sanded, but that’s the price of proper course maintenance. Final scores were higher than usual for this course, so everyone had their chance to with the mug… who would it be?
Winning the September Monthly Mug was Mikito Homma (h’cap 18) with a fine net 68. Congratulations Mikito! Just missing out yet another first place but still in the winnings was Don Carmody (25) with net 69. Ever present Mashi Kaneta (15) was next with net 71 followed by colorful playing partner Walter Baechli (16) with net 72. For the rest… there is always next month.
