Friday, June 10th – Eastern Star
The Eastern Star course is difficult at the best of times, when there is a two-club wind blowing its almost impossible as it was today and this was reflected in the scores which were very modest at best. To make matters worse the wind peculiarly never seemed to favour us, blowing either across or against us most of the time. The course was very busy today with large groups everywhere so a very slow round which also didn’t help.
Whenever a low scoring round is played you can almost guarantee that Steve Durey will figure in the winner’s circle as he did again today taking first place with thirty-three points. Steve is well-positioned to go back to back in the golfer of the month contest. Second place went to Michael Brett one point adrift with Tony Robbins rounding out the scoring on thirty-one points. The highlight of the day was a rare eagle from Craig Webster.
A trip to Khao Yai is on the cards for July with games proposed for Sir James, Khao Yai Country Club, Mountain Creek, and Royal Hills. Nothing has been confirmed yet so anyone wishing to participate should stay tuned.
1st Steve Durey (20) 33 points
