Thomas (36) 39pts T2nd Alan McKendry (12) 39ptsAs of this writing, Green Valley has now closed 9 holes so we are playing Silky Oak on Mondays until further notice. With just a month to go before RGV hosts a ladies pro event, we hope to see frantic work on the course for it to be ready on time.It was a cooler day than normal and the overcast skies gave us a nice break from the heat.  J.P. was firing on all cylinders and tied with Alan McKendry for second with 39 points.Peter LeNoury got the right course this time and an impressive 41 point round gave him the win for today.  He started strong with a front nine of 24 points and that included two three-putts!  Capt. Phil was on track for the Caddy Smile near pin and yes, he got the ‘2’.Wednesday, July 26, Siam Waterside (white tees) – Stableford1st Micky Beresford (20) 40ptsT2nd Mark Wood (11) 38ptsT2nd Scott Moore (21) 38ptsOur special treat this month took us to the fabulous Siam Waterside.  Wednesday is their Sports Day special so the all in rate was a reasonable 2,900 baht and well worth it.  The course was in perfect condition and is much more user friendly than the other Siam courses.Scott Moore is visiting us from Australia and playing well lately.  Thirty-eight on the card got Scotty a tie with Mark Wood for second place.  Mark had in interesting way of getting those points on the card and with all par-5 holes reached in regulation, Mark proceeded to bogey each and every one of them!  The other 14 holes were far more generous.It was Mark’s playing partner who cleaned up today and our mate Micky Beresford done good with 40 points for the win.Friday, July 28, Greenwood A&C (yellow tees) – Stableford1st Jim Dundon (18) 41pts2nd Richard Goodwyn (20) 39pts3rd Tony Moore (18) 36ptsThere is a new little shortcut to Greenwood now and it shaves off about 7 minutes from going down the 331 and making that tricky U-turn to enter the main gates.  The new route has you turning right in the direction of Pattavia (much safer) and a left turn 800 yards down puts you on the Greenwood property. They have even put up a small sign to let you know you are on the right track. If you use Google maps it will also show you the way.Ben Denham is one of the few scratch golfers in town and known to be a long hitter.  He is also quite handy with a 7-iron and Ben took our Caddy Smile near pin today.  Tony Moore had brother Scott on the podium on Wednesday but today was his turn and today 36 points got him third place.  We welcomed back Richard Goodwyn who returned from the States and hit the ground running with 39 points for second.Getting his land legs back is sailor Jimmy Dundon and he did it in fine form today with a big red 41 circled at the top of the scorecard.  Jim is with us for another couple of weeks so expect to see his name up there for a while.last_img
