Monday, June 8, Treasure Hill – Stableford
There was nobody here today as we arrived so we teed off 20 minutes ahead of schedule. As the round continued the wind picked up and heavy rain clouds moved in. The first group reached the 11th green when the heavens opened and as the drinks kiosk on the third hole was open we all met up there to take shelter. Unfortunately the rain continued for over an hour so the day’s competition was cancelled. Apart from the rain, the course was in very good condition and we will be here again soon.
Wednesday, June 10, Plutaluang – Stableford
We played off the North and West nines today with two divisions out with the equal cut set at 7-17 in the top flight and 18+ in division 2. Terry Madsen returned the best score of the day, winning division 1 with 33 points while Paul Butler came in second one point behind and Wichai beat Alan Bissell 17/14 on the back nine for third after they both returned 30 points each. The greens were quite slick today and this reflected in the scores in division 2, with Gordon Everingham taking the win with just 29 points ahead of Roar Berger in second on 28 and Louis Wong third with 26. Near pins went to (Div 1) Terry Madsen and Wichai Tannanusorn, and (Div 2) Eiichi Matsumoto and Tom Novak. Terry Madsen birdied the lighthouse hole and Roar Berger the third on the West course to scoop the ‘2’s pots in their respective divisions.
Friday, June 10, Eastern Star – Stableford
Rain in most areas this past week but none here at Eastern Star and on the walk from the tees to the fairways we could see the grass was very burnt and yellow and the ground very hard. The greens have picked up condition wise and are quite slick. With 35 points Chris Voller recorded the best score of the day, winning division 1 ahead of Arthur Hancock in second one point behind and Sandy Lundie was third with 31. Tom Novak, in his last game before his return to Kazakhstan, topped division 2 standings with 34 points while Tony Thorne took second on 33 and Darryl Blair third with 32. Near pins were claimed by (Div 1) Arthur Hancock, Tim Hake and Chris Voller, and (Div 2) Paul Butler and Tom Novak. Marty Rock birdied the 3rd for the only ‘2’ of the day.
