The Rest of the World v. England for the Mulberry Ryder Cup 2018.
R.O.W. takes the Mulberry Ryder!
It was destination Khao Yai for the 2018 Mulberry Ryder Cup that pits
the England side against the Rest of the World. With players coming
in from Canada, Dubai, Japan and Abu Dhabi there was an
international presence joining our local Americans and Australians
for this years’ event hosted by our mate Steve Mulberry. This is our
big competition of the year and an event we all look forward to at
The Golf Club.
It was the closest competition yet and it all came down to the last
four holes of the last day of singles and in the end it was the R.O.W.
team captained by Mike Newbert who claimed victory over David
Brannigans’ England squad.

42 golfers and 4 of the very best golf courses including Rancho
Charnvee, Khao Yai Golf Club, Toscana Valley and Lotus Valley made
for an excellent week of Matchplay golf. Next year’s venue…TBA!

Monday 5 th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
1 st – Thierry Danzas (26) 42 points
2 nd – Takita (23) 41 points
T-3 rd – Dan Dietz (11) 39 points
T-3 rd – Gary Emmett (15) 39 points
Back to the reality of Pattaya and our local golf goes from strength to strength
with the daily comps always fully booked. 32 golfers joined Capt. Phil for the
Monday Green Valley event today as we welcome back some old friends.
With an impressive 42 points, it was Frenchman Thierry Danzas who stole the
show here today. Gary Emmett is back on the scoreboard at a tie with Dan
Dietz and Takita-san takes sole second place. Terry Pettitt is with us again from
England and claims the Caddy Smile near pin.

Tuesday 6 th – Khao Kheow – Stableford – Yellow Tees
1 st – Masao Ishikawa (17) 41 points
2 nd – David Johl (18) 37 points
T-3 rd – Mitch Black (12) 35 points
T-3 rd – Andy Leach (6) 35 points
It was a perfect day for golf again with slightly cooler weather than last week.
We could do with a good rain, but that is not on the horizon, so instead we can
take advantage of those added yards from drier fairways this week.
Khao Kheow is in beautiful condition still, so everyone wants to play here. The
lads did well out there and 41 points went to Ishi, who also took the near pin.

Thursday 8 th – Greenwood A & B – Stableford – White Tees
1 st – David Nicholson (17) 42 points
2 nd – Franjo Blazevic (4) 38 points

3 rd – Louis Ventimiglia (20) 37 points
Our 09:36 tee time was just about as late as we wanted out here at
Greenwood today. The course was very busy as we had expected, but the staff
had everything under control. Things went smoothly from start to finish and
the course was in pretty good shape for as much play as it is getting.
It was a good day to be Louis Ventimiglia as Lou snagged first place with 41 as
well as the Caddy Smile near pin. Did he make the birdie? Well, yes he did and
yours truly owes you a drink for the 2!

Friday 9 th – Silky Oaks - Stableford – White Tees
T-1 st – Dan Dietz (11) 41 points
T-1 st – William Batwin (18) 41 points
3 rd – Blake Hanna (16) 39 points
It has been an interesting week for golf, with all those in the winner’s circle
scoring 41 points or more. Mind you, there are big fields these days and the
courses are in prime condition for the most part.
Don’t forget that we are doing a 2 hour practice session at Siam Waterside
every Sunday, departing TGC at 10:30 and returning around 13:30. It really is a
5-star facility but you need to sign up early as we can only take 11 golfers in
the van. Is that why they are playing so well?
Good to see Blake getting onto the podium in this final round of the week with
a strong 39 on the card. Dandy Dan Dietz and William had to share the prize
with both netting 41 points. Our good ol’ boys are back and the siblings Gilbert
and Scott King are always welcome home at TGC. Today it was Gilbert that was
our near pin winner so thanks to all for your contributions to the caddies!
The Golf Club is “The Home of Golf in Pattaya” and located in the Heart of
Pattaya on Soi L.K. Metro. We broadcast all PGA, EPL, UFC, NFL, MLB and NHL
games live. Our kitchen is open from 07:00-22:30 with our famous Steak Nights
