Weds June 17th – Pattaya Country Club
We are now deep in monsoon season with most days overcast and plenty of rain about and today was such a day. From the start of play, the rain came down, mostly drizzle but occasionally reasonably heavy, although we were never forced to shelter. The course was very wet in places so once again the pick, clean, and place rule was applied. The course was virtually empty on the first nine but a few more groups appeared later in the day.
Newcomer to the Bunker Boys Jerry Hanrahan playing his first game with us took the honours today, he had everything going for him being a member of the course and playing off a very generous twenty-four handicap. Jimmy Carr took second place on countback and Dave Ashman rounded out the scoring with thirty-one points.
Whilst the rain has been brilliant for the golf courses we have not yet had the usual monsoon floods that fill up the water catchments, hopefully, we get some soon as Pattaya water reserves are very low.
1st Jerry Hanrahan (24) 32 points
