Boss gives it his best shot

first_imgPattaya Golf Society at The LinksMonday, June 13 Mountain Shadow StablefordOn Monday, 13th June, the Pattaya Golf Society visited Mountain Shadow to play a Stableford competition from the blue tees. The recent rains have done the job at the course and fairways are now well covered and the greens are in good condition. There may be some small patches of worn turf off the fairways but off fairway destinations are not the places to be at the course.There was only one other four ball on the course for the whole morning so progress was excellent.In second place was Murray Edwards with 29 points in his penultimate round this trip and the winner’s place went to Mr Len with 34 points, which should have been better had he not four-putted two consecutive holes.No booby prize was awarded as all players had put in “good shift” and with an empty course millionaires’ golf had been the order of the day. All Square at Soggy EmeraldFriday, June 17 Emerald-StablefordOn Friday, 17th June the Pattaya Golf Society visited an empty Emerald golf club to play a Stableford competition on the rapidly improving course, after a few weeks of regular rain. Fairways are well grassed and the greens in a week or so will be excellent after some recent repairs.The moderately sized group found scoring tough as they followed a Gallic social four ball intent of playing like “escargots”, meaning that five hours on a humid course punctuated by a heavy storm would guarantee nothing more than moderate scoring.Sharing the win on 30 points were Toby Glass and Mike Davies, with Mike Wilsher coming in third with 29 points. Toby also recorded the only birdie two with a fine, if speedy effort on the short fifteenth.The week finished in the usual way with beers at The Links back in Soi Buakhao and another week of tough golf on excellent courses was anticipated.last_img read more
