133rd PSC Monthly Tournament at Pleasant Valley
Friday 20th June Pleasant Valley Golf Club
Joe moves on! Mark takes over!
Following the previous weeks’ AGM, former Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham was elected Vice President and Mark West Golf Chairman, today’s tournament was the ‘swan song’ for Joe and an introduction to Mark.
It being the low season, the numbers signed up was less than normal but those who took the opportunity to play had an enjoyable day with the weather not too hot, and the course in good shape. Despite the infiltration of a couple of 5 balls, all rounds were completed in around 4 hours.
On the reception desk was Joe, Mark and Nigel and many took the opportunity of meeting Mark and wishing him well acknowledging Joe would be a hard act to follow.
Later Joe and Mark received the cards and clearly there were going to be some good scores.
The low gross winner was Mike Allidi (3) with a great 72 – Gross.
Jeff Wylie (6) took ‘A’ Flight with a net 74.
An unusual situation in ‘B’ Flight occurred when 3 players all came in with 41 points, the count back went to the last 3 holes with Wolfram Krueger (17) being declared the winner.
‘C’ Flight produced the best Stableford of the day with Malcolm Farquharson (26) coming in with 43 points!
Just a few Ladies today but with 41 points Rungratree Puangsal (12) was a clear winner.
It was an early finish so many went home before going to The Player’s Lounge where today presentation and buffet was held.
Most of the players came for the Presentation with many bringing their partners and families to enjoy the excellent food provided as well as the excellent drink service.
Time now for the presentation – as usual Nigel called order and introduced Joe Mooneyham and Mark West. Joe expressed his appreciation for the support the PSC members had given him over the last 4 years and was sure Mark would enjoy the same support. He also thanked the PSC office staff, William, Noy, and Nigel for their help during his term of office. Thanks also went to the Management and staff of the Players’ Lounge for their hospitality.
Mark said he looked forward to the role he would be playing as Golf Chairman and announced he had already appointed a golf committee to assist in his task. He paid tribute to Joe and wished him well in his new role of Vice President.
Nigel then announced the winners and Joe presented the prizes. Lucky draw followed and then the 50/50 draw which was won by a delighted Bryan Neal. Many stayed on to enjoy the banter with fellow members and guests well into the evening.
The next PSC monthly is scheduled for Friday July 25th at Pattana Golf Course with the buffet and presentation at Shenanigans in Jomtien. Note this is a change in date.
