131st PSC Monthly Tournament at Plutaluang
PSC 131st MONTHLY GOLF TOURNAMENT
Friday 28th February Plutaluang
The choice of Plutaluang – the Navy Course – by Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham for this month’s tournament was a popular one by all 99 players – including 14 Ladies playing North and West 9’s on a perfect day for golf – not too hot – a slight breeze and an excellently presented course with rounds taking a little over 4 hours.
Joe Mooneyham and Nigel Cannon arrived early to place the necessary markers on the course and to prepare for registration. All players arrived well in time for the 2 tee start at 0930 with speedy booking in by the Plutaluang staff.
