The 134th monthly was the first under the stewardship of newly elected Golf Chairman Mark West and was a great success. The choice of Pattana – playing ‘B’ and ‘C’ 9’s was popular with a total of 115 players enjoying this delightful course which was presented in great condition and with fine golfing weather and a smooth check-in all was set for a great day. Unfortunately the management allowed a number of 5 balls in the middle of our competition which made for some delays. Later the Management apologized! As members arrived they were greeted by Mark, Peter Blackburn, and Nigel Cannon for registration who were at the course early to prepare the markers for long drives and near pins. Registration went efficiently with some late withdrawals and additions and it was off to the 1st and 10th tees for the start. A little over 4 hours later as the players were returning their cards to Mark, Peter and Nigel it was clear that the course had played tough for some. Not so for the low gross winner Bob Watson (6) who came in with a great 76 Gross! In ‘A’ Flight playing medal from the White tees it was count-back for top spot with both Chris Kerr(5) and Jean Maffray(11) having a net 72 with Chris getting nod. An unusual situation for 3rd with Dave Stockman (7) and John Pierrel (11) having equal scores on the back 9,6 and 3 and it went to the 3 hardest holes where Dave had a birdie! In ‘B’ and ‘C’ Flights playing Stableford from the yellow tees 40 points from Tim Bradfield (12) and Merie Humphreys (20) saw them win their respective flights. Phillip Davies (21) with 36 points took ‘D’ Flight, Noi Emmerson (18) with 39 won the Ladies and Barry Oats (20) the Seniors. The prize presentation and buffet was at Shenanigans in Jomtien where Dave from The Sportsman provided an excellent buffet which with efficient drink service from the staff all was set for a pleasant evening. Presentation time and Nigel called order and introduced Golf Chairman Mark West – Mark first introduced his golf committee members – Dick Warberg, Peter Blackburn, Andre Van Dyk and Gerd Riedier. He then went on to express his appreciation to today’s players and those who helped today, Peter, Nigel, Noi and with special thanks to the PSC office staff. Mark outlined his activities over the past month and announced that the Bangpra would be joining the PSC voucher system next week and he was in negotiation with other courses. He also announced that Shenanigans will be giving a 15% discount on food and drink to PSC members – on production of their membership card. Nigel then announced the winners and Mark presented the prizes this was followed by the lucky draw and the 50/50 draw which included 4 1000 baht vouchers kindly donated by Shenanigans. The lucky lady who won the 50/50 was Suwanna Kerjale, who is a caddy at Kheow Kheo, kindly returned half of her winning to be donated to charity.
