Links Golf Society 26/1 Royal Lakeside
Harrison’s Haul at Lakeside
The Pattaya Links Golf Society abandoned an expensive Phoenix visit in favour of a late booking at Royal Lakeside on Friday, 26th January, and found the course in impeccable condition and at half the cost of a visit down the road in Ban Ampur.
Even the early start did not deter too many golfers and three dozen early risers played in two flights with the division set at eighteen.
With quick greens and a steady breeze scores were not as high as normal but a couple of golfers excelled with sub-par rounds.
In the top flight “Mr Consistency” Colin Smith scored 35 points for fourth place, on countback from Maurice Roberts and Huw Phillips.
In third was Andrew Purdie with 36 points, losing runner-up spot to compatriot Bob Watson on countback and the winner was John Chelo with 38 points, his best effort this trip.
The second flight had Harry Langkoff in fourth place with 33 points, again assisted by countback, which was also used to separate third placed Colin
Service and runner-up Helene Lindberg, both on 34 points.
The flight winner was Nigel Harrison with an excellent forty one points, the best total by far on the day.
Near pins were won by Tommy Marshall, Chris Barker, Simon Watts and Nigel Harrison whilst the consolation prizes went to Paul Greaves for his best front nine of 21 points and Ray Banks’s best back nine of 17 points.
