Quality Scores and Service With a Smile
Pleasant Valley is a course which golfers either love or hate. A bit like Silky Oak really,especially in peoples’concept of a good golfing venue. The Pattaya Links Golf Society visited there to start February and numbers were down, probably for this reason but two dozen golfers made an excellent competition in two flights, cut at seventeen and under. The course was in good condition with well covered fairways and consistent greens with a little
pace in them.
Scores were incredible with a quarter of the field breaking par. The course played short from the shorter than normal tees and the persistent wind seemed to help on almost every hole.
In the top flight German golfer Udo Emmerich took third place on countback with 38 points for his first podium place this trip. In second was Udo’s compatriot Olli Orth with 39 points and the winner was Ray Banks, concluding his visit this day, with 41 points. Ray’s golf seems to have rejuvenated him this year after a few visits recently with little success.
In the second flight Richard Dobson at last came good with 39 points but this was eclipsed by the top two. Tina Orth enjoyed a splendid “PB” with 44 points but saw “Murphy’s Law’kick in when Colin Service returned a score of 46 points to take the day. Such scoring brought the number of PLGS “69-or- less” rounds this year to thirteen.
Near pins went to Masa Takano, Tip Briney, Tina Orth, Colin Service The consolation places went to Pierre Cere for the best front nine of 22 points and Keith Melbourne for the best back nine of 22 points.
