Bangpakong 22nd May
On Wednesday, 22nd May, the Pattaya Links Golf Society travelled up highway 7 under heavy cloud cover to play a stableford competition at Bangpakong Riverside.
Since our last visit three weeks ago the fairways have been cored and are currently well under repair but the “bounce” associated with them has disappeared, leaving little run. It is not helped of course by the daily rains which affect all Bangkok “local” courses. Indeed, thunder rolled around for most of the round but it came to nothing more than that. Greens were very consistent as usual.

Six groups set off and preferred lies were adopted for the day. Scores were good as always with Darren Beavers taking fourth place on countback with 36 points.
