Links Golf Society 2/7

At Laem Chabang….Mon…Jul.2..S/ford – Low Season Highs at Laem Chabang

 

The Pattaya Links Golf Society began July with its second largest field of the year so far when they visited the sumptuous Laem Chabang to play a stableford competition in three flights, divided at fourteen and under and 21 and over.

 

The course, more especially the B and C nines, at the moment is in wonderful condition and a hot day, refreshed by a constant cooling breeze helped the golfers to enjoy the experience.

For many in the field it was their first experience of playing the course and the magnificent PSC deal at present allows most of Pattaya’s golfers to share the pleasure.

 

In the top flight three handicapper Jay Burns collected 34 points from his best gross round (77) to take third place on countback from Phil Davies, with Kevin McEntee also benefitting from c/back to take second place. The flight winner was Tommy Marshall who took the victory with 36 points.

 

In the second flight Toby Glass came good at last with a sparkling 35 points for third place, a couple behind a resurgent Colin Service on 37 points. The flight winner was Andre van Dyk with an excellent 39 points matching the best points total of the day.

 

The third flight saw Mike Firkin’s newly re-shafted driver do the business (most of the time) as he made his way to a third place of 34 points. In second was Terry Mangan with 37 points and the flight winner was Barry Oats with 39 points.

 

Near pins were won by Nigel Harrison (B5), Brock Jensen (B8), Barry Oats (C5) and John Pierrel (C8).

 

Consolation awards went to Phil Davies for his best front nine of 22 points and Ken Hole for his best back nine of 19 points.
