Today marked the first day of Lewinskis new golfing schedule, designed to give everyone a chance to play Monday to Friday on some of the wonderful courses to be found in the Pattaya area.
The weather was gorgeous; sunny with a very pleasant cool wind and although we were a little late teeing off, due to The Golf Club having higher numbers than usual following the funeral of Steve Ellison, yesterday, it was nice to enjoy the friendly banter on the tee.
The greens had been sanded recently but on close inspection, they were quite reasonable and ok to putt on, despite the usual grizzles from a few. Two groups was a satisfactory start the high season and the choice to play here on a Monday instead of the large number on Fridays, seems to be the right decision.
The day was won by Alan Atwell with an excellent 37pts playing off 12. Ning was second on countback, scoring 31pts off h'cap 22 beating John Harrison, also with 31pts playing off 13. A special welcome also to Reijo, one of my old customers from my Outback days.
For the remainder of the week, we shall be at Chee Chan (Weds), Burapha (Thurs) and we return to the Old Course on Friday, with a first tee time of 8.30am; call Jack on 081 578 1956 of you wish to play
