TGC write up for 22 nd – 26 th Jan.
Steve Ellison

A dandy week for Andy!

Monday 22 nd – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
1 st – Andy Leach (9) 42 points
2 nd – Jim Dundon (18) 41 points
3 rd – Pierre Gymer (16) 39 points
T - 4 th – Mike Cantrell (32) 38 points
T - 4 th – Peter Thomas (23) 38 points

This is the peak of the high season now and the sheets are always
full. If you want to be sure of getting a game in, then you had better
commit to a date and sign up well in advance. Some of you guys
don’t realize it but on some courses, I have to book the tee times
over 2 months before and there are only so many slots available.

Capt. Phil had a lot of calculations for today’s event, but as he is a
certified accountant it should make things a lot easier. Five were in
the winners’ compound and were rewarded for their efforts at Green
Andy Leach ended up at the top of the pile with a pretty darn good
round of 42 points and topped Jimmy Dundon by just one shot for
the win. Pierre took sole third and Mike and Peter had to split the
pot at the 38 point mark. This is Mike Cantrell’s last week with us as
he sets sail for another trip back to the States until his next journey
east to Pattaya. Have a good trip back… see ya soon.
Jimmy Dundon also took the near pin for our Caddy Smile project
and generously donated all the winnings to the charity. Thanks to Jim
and all the support he has given us over the years to our charity.

Tuesday 23 rd – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White Tees
1 st – Kenny Aihara (7) 38 points
2 nd – Mitch Black (13) 36 points
3 rd – John Rodwell (30) 35 points

Love this course big time. Pattavia is a great layout and is presented
to us in great condition on every visit. Management has the sense to
keep the high season pricing at a fair level, so let the games begin!
As we all know, the greens here are the fastest in Pattaya… bar none.
Get your head around that and you will have a lot of fun here. As
long as you are happy with Beer Chang as the beer of preference
then the après- golf scene in the clubhouse will be just fine.
20 golfers filled our 5 slots today and Kenny was top of the class for
his podium finish. Mitch had a solid showing with 36 and don’t forget
John with a great round turned in from the 30 handicapper. Hey, we
were all there at some point, right?

So, Kenny gets the win on a course we played from over 6,600 yards
and plucks the Caddy Smile near pin as well? That is a damn good
day of golf from one of our dearest pals and good to see his form
continues to improve even after last weeks’ victories!

Thursday 25 th – Khao Kheow B & C – Stableford – White Tees
1 st – Doc Beard (23) 38 points
2 nd – Zed Belagovic (17) 36 points
3 rd – Dan Dietz (11) 35 points

A beautiful day on an equally beautiful golf course made for a really
nice day of golf in the Kingdom. Never, ever a complaint here as the
greenskeeping crew, the management and the starter have all got
their act together.
Dan Dietz pretty much just got off the plane and showed up guns-a-
blazin’ for the third slot with a 35. The visitors gained complete
control of the podium here today as our usually reliable local
squaddies apparently took the day off and handed the comp to the
lads from abroad.
It was not only the lads, but our near pin was won by Madame Fraser
Noran playing from the red tees, who showed all the Japanese and
Korean tourists there how it should be done.

Friday 26 th – Emerald - Stableford – White Tees
1 st – Dan Dietz (11) 40 points
2 nd – Brad Gearie (12) 39 points
3 rd – Andy Leach (9) 38 points

Is there anybody else having problems with Emerald? We were
pushed back 40 minutes from our original starting time and stuck
behind a slow gang of locals yet again. I called to confirm our next

booking only to be told that our tee time was moved back… so I
cancelled. Somebody there has lost the plot for bookings which is a
shame as it is a popular course for locals and visitors. Hence, our
scheduled February 9 th booking here has been cancelled so please
see the venue change on our facebook page.
There was a tight race at the podium and we find Andy and Dan right
back up there. Our Aussie mate Brad Gearie split the gap on 39 and it
was Jimmy Dundon with another Caddy Smile near pin win!
Thanks to all who joined us for an amazing week in Pattaya, the
home of golf in Asia.
