Ged Foy who used to say he couldn’t handle Green Valley proved himself wrong today as he scored forty one points to win his flight by seven points, a score which will see a sharp reduction on his handicap. Terry Mangan has just returned from a few months in Ireland and has settled in quickly as he came second today with thirty four points. Russell Gilroy took the third spot with thirty one points.Support Pattaya Mail – Click HereIn the A flight Andy Featherstone kept up his very steady golf and was the winner with thirty seven points. We then had two players on thirty six points and here Lyle Blaw won the count back which went down to the last six holes to come second. Paul Pavloff was playing his last game with us for this year and although he lost the count back to Lyle to come third he still came away with the most money today as he had the only two of the day.Tuesday, Oct. 17, Crystal Bay – Stableford1st Craig Hitchens (17) 36pts2nd Andy Featherstone (5) 36pts3rd Paddy Naughton (18) 35pts4th Joe McArdle (17) 34pts5th Dan Hobbs (23) 33pts2’s: Dan Hobbs, Paddy Naughton and Andrew Purdie, one each.We were back with our friends from the PFGS in Crystal Bay after a long absence to find the course in excellent condition. We played the C and B courses in that order and while the Greens on the C course were a bit slow they were still in very good condition and the Greens on the B course were a bit faster. Unfortunately one of our group got mixed up today and went to the wrong course but for those who got there it was very enjoyable, not too hot and also not a drop of rain.As the course was around 6,400 yds and playing long the scores were reasonable with two people managing to play to their handicaps.Craig Hitchens came out on top with thirty six points as he beat Andy Featherstone who is still playing very steady golf in to second place on the count back. Paddy Naughton took the third place with thirty five points and Joe McArdle was fourth with thirty four. We then had three players on thirty three points with Pat Carty and Per Forsberg who was playing his first ever game with us losing the count back and Dan Hobbs winning it to take the fifth and last place for today and Dan also had a two to make it even better.Thursday, Oct. 19, Burapha – Stableford1st Pat Carty (28) 42pts2nd Andy Featherstone (5) 39pts3rd John Fenwick (20) 34pts4th Joe McArdle (17) 34pts2’s: Per ForsbergWe were here in Burapha for what was our penultimate visit for this year as the Sport Days are near at an end. We will miss it as it is very popular with our group and always in immaculate condition. We all played off the White tees today as the fairways are still soft with no run and again we played the A and B nines.Pat Carty really came in to form today and was a very clear winner with an excellent forty two points which included a blank on the seventeenth, a score which will see a sharp reduction on the handicap. Andy Featherstone probably thought he had done enough for another win as he had gone round in two over par gross for another excellent score of thirty nine points but today it wasn’t good enough and he had to settle for second place but still great golf.We then had three players on thirty four points and here John Fenwick won the count back to take the third place and Joe McArdle took the fourth on a count back over Joe Peters which went down to the last two holes.last_img
