It was a small field of 14 that decided to take on Pattana GC on this bank holiday here in Pattaya. We must thank the course management for the price that they gave us for the day.
Has been a while since we have played this course and by all reports the course is in good condition. Weather started well but as the day went on the warmer it got. It was a warm day but it is summer and we need to remember this!
We played stableford and went from the white tees (ladies from the red) with all novelties in play. People had decided to do something different on the day as the course was quiet, not much traffic at all.
Only one flight today and it was Sal Brizzi that showed the way with a very tidy score. Following were Steve Younger and Bill Stienmann who both finished with the same score only to be separated by the countback system. Steve, who has lost many a countback took second with Bill taking third.
1st – Sal Brizzi (5) 35 points
2nd – Steve Younger (15) 33 points
3rd – Bill Steinmann (12) 33 points
Near the Pin:
3 – JJ Harney
7 – Sal Brizz
11 – Steve Younger
16 – Rudy Regenass
Long First Putt:
9th – JJ Harney
18th – Colm Lawlor
