Pattaya Links Golf Society – Crystal Bay/Wed Jan 31 S/ford
Banks in Credit Again…
The PLGS visited Crystal Bay on a warm bright day on the final day of the month and found the C and B nines in reasonable condition with fairways soft in places and greens which hardly passed muster.
The front nine greens – C course – were slow and "woolly" whilst the back nine – B course – had them in much better condition and a full stimp point (or more) quicker. Just another problem for the large field to consider. Two flights were identified with the division at 18 and under.
Scores were not startling and in the second flight third place went to Big Mike McGuigan with a score of 33 points. Countback was needed to identify the flight winner and Stuart James took the win from Paul Chesney, both with 35 points.
In the top flight countback again identified the third place winner, Wayne Peppernell. The unlucky golfers level with him being Masa Takano, John Kelly and Maurice Roberts.
In second was Takeshi Hakozaki with 36 points and the only sub-par round of the day was recorded by Ray Banks in his penultimate round this trip, a meritorious 37 points.
Near pins were won by Takeshi Hakozaki, Wayne Peppernell and Tony Browne (two). Consolation Prizes for Best Nines.
Best Front Nine ( non winners) Richard Dobson 18 pts
Best Back Nine ( non winners) Colin Service 17 pts
Winner “A” Flight Ray Banks (14) 37 pts
2 nd Place Takeshi Hakozaki (15) 36 pts
.3 rd Place Wayne Peppernell (14) 29 pts c/back
Winner “B” Flight Stuart James (20) 35 pts c/back
2 nd Place Paul Chesney (19) 35 pts.
3 rd Place Michael McGuigan (24) 33 pts.
The field were unanimous in their wish to see the A course reopened soon and at least some consistency brought back to the greens.
