P.S.C. Golf from Cafe Kronborg
Monday, 7th July 2008: Green Valley (Stableford). A very pleasant day of Golf was had at the Rayong Green Valley layout. The Course was in very good condition and presented in a very tidy manner.
The Course was fully booked but we arrived early and teed off 20 minutes early. Martyn Topham won with 37 points ahead of Sid Ottaway in second with 34 points. In third was Ted Morris on countback from Henry O'Brien, both with 31 points.
Thursday, 3rd July 2008: Greenwood (Stableford).
“Here we go again, and we seem to have been here before” were the comments as we met at The Cafe Kronborg. This is one of the Courses that seem to be the first on the list as soon as we look to book Courses for the coming month.
The road there is now very good, and the road back even better. If you do not understand that comment, try it. It is all to do with the fact that on the way back we do not get diverted, and it is a straight drive on, at least, dual carriageway.
Arriving it was nice to see, for the players that is, that the car park was nearly empty; however we did not all make it on time as the Bus had a flat. No worries, but with the drivers trying to squeeze as much room on the Bus for the players, a spare tyre seems excess.
Finally at the start we were told we would play the A & C Nines, and of course this is usually a real test. On this day the Course was in good if wet and sloppy condition, and the carts were limited to the paths. A downpour half way around did not help and wet spikes were the order of the day. It became a struggle. It always seems to be raining at the Golf Courses at this time of the year.
Round over we sat in the restaurant, and realised that Ebrahim had had a 'Hole in One', so it was on with the Celebrations and Ebrahim bought a drink for everyone, whether it was a Coke or a Beer. Well done Ebrahim!
In the Competition we had Two Flights. In the A Flight, 0 to 18, the Winner was Ted Morris with a fine 38 points ahead of the 'Hole in One' man Ebrahim with 36 points and in third was the new PSC Golf Chairman, Perry McNeely with 32 points.
In the B Flight, 19 up, the scores were not as good. The Winner was Daryl Evans with 30 points ahead of a countback for second won by Norm Martin, with Tom Cotton in third, both 29 points.
We were finished nice and early so were able to have a slow petrol saving drive back. T.T.F.N.
