128th PSC Monthly Tournament at Treasure Hill
PSC 128th MONTHLY GOLF TOURNAMENT
Friday 25th October Treasure Hill Golf Course.
With all the rain that has fallen in Pattaya and surrounding areas it was, perhaps, a surprise that the 92 competitor’s in this month’s tournament had a rain free day on this challenging course. The weather was cool, by Thailand standards, and with a slight breeze making it great for golf. The course was presented in good condition and the management saw to it that we had the course exclusively which saw most rounds completed in just over 4 hours.
Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham and Social Chairman Nigel Cannon arrived at the course early to prepare for registration and place the appropriate markers on the course to find staff and caddies ready for our day. With some last minute adjustments to the starting sheets all were away on time at the 1st and 10th tees.
Treasure Hill has a reputation as a tough track, however, there were some good scores in all flights. The current PSC Club Champion Mike Allidi (2) showed his championship qualities with a superb 72 gross to take the low gross prize.
In ‘A’ Flight – playing stroke play it was good to welcome back Kari Kuparinen (6) who was in top spot with 71 net. It was the ‘old warrior’ Ted Morris (14) with the best Stableford score of the day with 40 points to take ‘B’ Flight.
37 points from Michael Jefferys (18) and 39 from Joel Flor (24) was enough to secure first place in ‘C’ and ‘D’ Flights respectively.
With just a few ladies playing today it was the smiling new face of Churairat Srinual (34) who returned the best score of 29 in the ladies Flight.
This month’s presentation was at Lewiinski’s where Colin and his team provided a mouthwatering buffet to cater for all tastes and diets! As is usual, the ‘Lewiinski’s Lovelies’ were on hand to deal with drink orders.
Presentation time – Nigel called order and welcomed all and expressed appreciation to Colin and his team and introduced Golf Chairman Joe. He expressed his appreciation to today’s competitor’s and gave details of the upcoming PSC golfing events for the next few months. He also announced that PSC were providing marshals for the PGA tournament at Amata Springs on December 12th – 15th. There are still some vacancies for this roll and full details are in the Clubhouse and on the PSC web-site for all those interested in this great opportunity.
Back to Nigel who announced the winners and Joe presented the prizes. Lucky draw followed then it was goodnight from Nigel, who reminded all that the PSC Christmas party on Wednesday 11th December at Town in Town Hotel,
