Mon Aug 17th – Laem Chabang B & C
Moxey makes a big Pattaya comeback at Laem Chabang
Laem Chabang was looking a picture as our sixteen golfers made their way to the first tee. We would play the B and C nines on a perfect golf course and, once again, in perfect golfing weather.
The fairways here are beautiful and the grounds staff were busy keeping them even more well-trimmed and manicured. There were plenty of compliments for the greens also. However, with everything done that the greenkeeper could do, it was, as suggested by some, a fairly hard day. It happens that way sometimes.
It was slow going at times as, for a rare time, we didn’t have the course to ourselves. This may account for the lower scores, certainly lower than our last visit here.
Today’s winner – Steve Moxey
Steve Moxey has been down to an eight handicap, so he can play a bit, but that handicap has been slipping somewhat over a couple of months and today he played off a handicap of # 11.
But that old game started to return and he has grabbed his first win since having a run of wins earlier in the year. 38 points got Moxey a good win on a tough day.
We thought Darren Beavers had left town to move to Surin, and he had. But he had some things to do in Pattaya so he signed on for a game at Laem Chabang with his buddy, Colin Service. He has played some rounds at Surin, so found good form to grab second spot with a solid 37 points.
Ever reliable, Paul Durkan filled third place with 34 points off his generous handicap of #5. We are pretty sure that when Paul steps out, he will be in the mix somewhere.
Near Pins: Wayne Peppernell, Paul Durkan (x2), Steve Moxey.
