Pattaya's inaugaral Songkran tournament was held on 16, 17, and 19 April at Burapha, Pattana and Khao Keow golf courses. In total, 68 players joined us although some players did not play all three days. 

A great thank you to our sponsors, Pattaya Car Rental being the main sponsor. Outback Golf Shop, Chaba Massage and McAllen insurance who contributed for the fabulous prizes that was on offer for the winners and for novelty prizes. Together with other banner sponsors supporting this event, it sets a great benchmark for a 3 day golf tournament in Pattaya, and we will definately be back in future with this format with heaps of prizes.

After a rain shortened 2nd day, the tournament was open for the taking with several players in the running. After the last day's play, 7 players finished within 2 shots of each other, so it was a very tight result. Overall 3rd place was won by Hisahiko Makino with 110 points, beating several other players on count back. In 2nd place, losing on a countback based on the better overall score was Myles Knowlson who played very good golf on day 2 and 3 to finish on 111. In the end, the fabulous day 1 round of one over gross 73 which was posted on day 1, helped Dave Stockmanto stay in the lead and win our inaugural Songkran tournament of 2018. Dave was also the low gross champion.

Plenty of food, a good time after and fantastic atmosphere at the Prize presentation makes this a memorable tournament and thanks again to everyone that participated and help make the tournament a success.

Keeping to the tough C and D course for the second time in a row this month, it is great to see three divisions battle things out. The C&D courses at Burapha does not take any prisoners, and you have to be on top of your game to beat handicap on this course, and there is no doubt that the higher handicappers struggle a lot more on these courses than the lower handicappers, even with the extra shots that the higher handicappers receive on the slope rating.

So with three divisions, C division with handicap 24 and up had Rodger Ellis in 3rd place with 32 points. (Jimmy) James H. Little beating him narrowly on countback on the last six holes for 2nd place, and our winner in this division being Tom Parker who has been on a good run recently with 36 points.

In the B division, with handicaps 16-23, David Atkinson scored 35 points and loosing on countback to Phil Lamb with 2nd place. Barry Green scored the highest score today with 37 points to clinch first spot

In the A division up to 15 handicap, Charles Miller scored 34 points to reach 3rd place, Sel Wegner scored 35 points for 2nd place, and Grant Hall beat Sel on a better count back to win the A division.

Only two 2's and scooping some very nice prizes today were Peter Nixonand Fred Feucs.

Playing the AB course has become a lot more challenging than before, since management started setting the course up with a difficulty (magnified by a strong wind) and distance that actually matches how the course was rated in the first place and it is good to see again that only two players (10%) exceeded their handicaps. 

The challenge we had was that Monday was a public holiday, and although management assisted our golfers to use our normal voucher system rather than impose an extra charge, we were caught very off guard by having to wait until almost 10am before we tee'd off, with the starter inexplicably pushing group after group of people in front of us. A few phone calls to the right people finally put a stop to this, but at the end of the day, the last groups did not get off the course before 3pm, a really annoying situation.

In 3rd place in B division, (Bill) William Peach scored a 34 points, followed by Doc Beard who has joined us again this year with his 35 points in 2nd place. Top spot went to Ed Turner, who said that he should have had a lot more putts in wasn't it for the yips on the short putts!

In the A division, Per Lövgren scored a good 34 points to finish 3rd, followed by (Acco) David Atkinson with his 36 points. Winner of the A division was Tom Cody on his 37 points, a very good performance on a hard track with very windy conditions.

The only two of the day was had by (Bill) William Peach. Well done today!

I have had several conversations with Burapha's Management about the ratings of the A&B course, which is rated harder on paper than the C&D courses, but usually attract a lot better stableford scores amongst our handicap golfers. Mike looked into it for me and over the last two weeks implement some changes whereby the white tee boxes on AB are set up to more accurately reflect the yardage of the white tee ratings (over the length of 18 holes), and the changes did make a substantial difference with the results much more in line with the expected scores across all players. So, out of 28 players today, we had in past rounds almost half scoring better than handicap (penalizing them subsequently a bit unfairly on handicap reduction), but not anymore! Today, only 4 players scored better than their playing handicap, with a good distribution of other players in the 33-35 points range, and great balance between the A and B division (which is a sign that indicates whether a course is setup too easy or too hard. Better high handicap average scores mean a course is set up too easy, and better low handicap average scores mean a course is set up too hard). 

So with that bit of Trivia out of the way, here are the results:
B Division: Vince Connolly scored 35 points to come third, Shay Mitchell had 37 points in 2nd place, and Aussie visitor Dion Hyland an awesome 40 points to win the B division.
A Division:Neil John Lavery, a good 35 points for 3rd, followed by Steve Dull with 37 points in 2nd, and Pat Regan with a fantastic 39 points to win the A division. There were 3 two's today: Shay Mitchell, John Langley and Peter Nixon.

Another week where we play the more forgiving A&B courses and the scores at the top reflect this. As it turns out, you had to score 38 points today to make it into the prizes. Quite a drop below that however with 35 points being the next best.

So in 5th place,Tony McDonough scored 38 points losing on countback to  Colin Goon, who played another low 70's round to take him into 4th place with his 38 points. I am very pleased to see uncle Ed Turner doing so well today with his 39 points which propelled him into 3rd place. Frank O'Hara and his Irish compatriots have had a good run during their trip here, and Frank scored an awesome 40 points to take up 2nd place. The grand winner for today was Willy van Heetvelde with a great 42 points.

There were 4 two's today with Bernie Stafford collecting 2 two's, Ed Turner and Peter Nixon each recording a single two.

Back to A&B this week where scores are generally higher than on the more difficult C&D courses, and one would have thought with the beautiful mild weather that there would be some really big scores. 

With 3 players scoring 37 points, it was all down to count backs as we see often nowadays, and Acco (David Atkinson) scoring 16 points on the back nine to land him 5th spot overall. In 4th spot, with 19 points on the back nine, John Langley held together another good round for 4th place. In 3rd place, with 21 points on the back nine, Sel Wegner came out tops on the count backs. In 2nd place, John O'Keefe scored 38 points and after having his score added up wrong on the card, our tournament software was quick to point out the mistake which led to Ed Turner having 2 more points than he signed for, resulting him being declared the winner with a great 39 points. Well done Ed!

Thanks to Don Anderson, Norman Reid and Kevin Welsch joining our regular crowd today. Playing the tough C and D courses, good scores are hard to come by and especially the higher handicappers find the conditions very hard on the C&D courses. With the division cut off at 18 course handicap, David Atkinson's 28 points was enough to hand him 3rd spot in this division. John Langley had 29 points which set him in 2nd spot and Barry McIntosh was astonished to find himself the winner at 31 points. 

Things went a lot better in the A division, where 6th place would have been enough to win top spot in the A division. As it were, Fidge Button's 34 points was a pretty good score on the day and that handed him 3rd place.

Welcome back to Mike Stennett, his brother Paul, and friends Mark, a couple of fun lads joining us for a week or so. Welcome back as well to Barry Macintosh, joining us after a long absence. Playing on the A+B courses today, the scoring wasn't as high generally as what we usually see on the this course due to a few heavy clouds moving about and generally wet conditions after the heavy rains on the weekend. Our group was really lucky, the last group barely getting in just before the heavens opened again.

In the B division today, Barry Macintosh had 32 points which was good enough to make it into 3rd place. Ecco (David Atkinson) had 36 which was good enough for his round making it to 2nd place, and clear winner today was John O'Keefe, playing a fabulous 42 points to make it to the top spot. 

In A division, Sel Wegner had 38 points which was only good enough for 3rd place, followed by Peter Nixon in 2nd place also with 38 but a better back 9. Sugar Ray Handford is getting back to form with a fantastic 39 points, beating out the competition and getting top spot again.

There were 3 two's today, Mel Hogan, KB (Jin Lee), and Acco (David Atkinson).

Burapha Mon 2 Jan

After a day or two from golf, clearly a lot of chaps where eager to get out and have a round after the new year celebrations, and we had 8 groups teeing off today. Playing the C and D course is always a welcome difference from the easier A and B courses. We also welcome back a few returning friends, David BuchananFidge Button, Carl Luke and the Kiwi's joining us over the last few weeks.

In the B division Waldo (Stephen Blazsanyik) came in 3rd place with 38 points, followed by Jon Kittleson with a great 39 points. Ecco (David Atkinson), the funniest man in town (judging by how the ladies always seem to laugh when he's around), scored a great 40 points on his ting tong handicap which will hopefully be cut severely after today. Great effort Acco. 

In the A division, Svenn Lund's 34 points was enough to get him into 3rd slot, with Peter Nixon doing great with 35 points. The round of the day belonged to David Buchanan, scoring a brilliant 70 gross with 5 birdies and an eagle for 39 points off his 1 handicap. David's comment after the game was that he thought it was a mediocre round because he had 5 bogey's as well! Nuff said from a great golfer and a humble man!

There were two 2's today - Per Lövgren on hole 3 KB Lee on hole 8.

Burapha Mon 5 Dec

We're joined today by a couple of Siam weekday members who did not want to pay the ridiculous Holiday prices there, not that Burapha has a great deal going on the Public Holiday either by the way! Nonetheless, 14 players on a Pubic Holiday Monday at Burapha is good going and a couple of folks got really good value judging by the amount of points they raked up! 

I don't think the Outback bus was ever hit by a golf ball, but as Tawan drove the bus to the clubhouse in Burapha a Korean chap's tee shot went haywire and he ended up smacking a nice little dent in the minibus. The normal thing would be for a Thai lady to demand compensation, (and plenty of it), but not Tawan. She just accepted the highly embarrassed Korean fella's apology and went on her way again. Let's face it, the way I sometime hit the ball off the tee, it could have been me. Although with my luck, the wallet would have required opening, no doubt!

In 4th place Bob Lindborg scored a very good 37 points with 17 on the back nine to finish in 4th spot. KB Lee outpaced Bob on the back nine to capture 3rd place. First and second place was an entirely different matter. How often does one loose with 43 points! In this case, the unlucky fella was Chris Thompson, who's 22 points on the back nine with 43 points overall got him 2nd place. John Langley shot a superb 3 over par back nine that gave him 24 points on the back nine with his overall 43 points. Great going John! 

There were two 2's - Chris Thompson and Bob Lindborg.

Thanks to Kim Danboise organizing the golf day for me. By the looks of things, its been another good scoring day on the AB course, with a lot of good scores doing the rounds.

In 5th place, Jon Kittilsen scored 39 points, loosing on count back to Vince Butler who had a better back nine of 23 points. In 3rd place, loosing also on count back on the last three holes, was Per Lövgren with a great 40 points. Per also scored one of only two 2's today making it a good day for him. In 2nd place, Sel Wegner just managed to sneak ahead of Per with his 40 points. Big winner of the day (on his 2nd last game before returning from AWOL), was Roger Drake with an amazing 43 points.

Playing the easier AB course today, the scores were due to be higher, and no less than 6 people beat handicap today. 

In 5th place, Kim Danboise's 36 and a good back nine of 20 pts was good enough for 5th place. In 4th place, KB Lee, shooting a great 79 gross scored 37 points. Sel Wegner, who had a great week of golfing finished with a solid 39 points for 3rd place. Brad Jordison, with lowest gross of the day and a superb 40 points is in great form to finish 2nd. Jon Kittilsen also had a great week and finishing on 41 points was a superb achievement. Well done everyone!

Jon Kittilsen and KB Lee each scored a two to complete a good day out for them.

Playing the more difficult C&D course, scores are usually lower than the A&B course, and coming in 5th place with 34 points was Maurice Copan. In 4th place, Kim Danboise is continuing his good form with another good round of 35 points. Paul Pedelty scored an excellent 20 points on the back nine to beat Kim on count back for 3rd place.

With the high season kicking in, it is good to see some return visitors joining us, some of them coming only once a year and enjoying the benefit of the Outback fetching them right from their hotels to join us for a fun day out. Well to our long standing Japanese friend, Kazuo, who brought 4 friends along enjoyed playing courses like Burapha, Laem Chabang, the Siam courses etc. and where tour requests match up with our society, we welcome such visitors to play in our tournaments as well.

Judging by the scores, our Japanese friends had a hard time keeping up with the field with Kazuo performing by far the best with a 4th place. Just behind Kazuo was Guy Lindsay Watson who also joined us for the first time, finishing 5th. In 3rd place, Bob Lindborg had another good round with 37 points in 3rd place. Jim Black joining us on his annual leave scored a great 38 points but Steve Plant took the win with his good form with a solid 40 points.

Jim Black had the only two of the day collecting a healthy ransom from the field.

We were joined by Graham Holmes this week on a short visit to Pattaya where he started making some arrangements for the TIAC tour that he hosts in March next year. Conditions on the course was great with the difficult C&D course made extra difficult with a thick rough which complicated manners immensely for the higher handicap players.

In 4th place today was Peter Stonebridge with 33 points beating Peter Nixon but losing to (Jimmy) James H. Little who came third on countback. Sel Wegner scored a great two on hole 17 and finished second behind Dennis Pelly who also scored a two and beat Sel on count back on the last three holes.

We have a lot of starters for Monday but please keep in mind that it is a Public Holiday and Burapha informed me that the Greenfee will be the weekend/holiday rate of Thb 1,400.

So once again on the A&B courses (which served as a good warm up for the PSC event on Wednesday, our players was greeted with the fabulous conditions at Burapha at the moment. Make no mistake however, the rough can be punishing, and with the wet conditions the course plays a bit longer than otherwise. The greens are as good as anywhere, they run true, in great condition and makes a very enjoyable day out. Scores reflected this, with again almost half the course getting better than playing handicap scores.

Coming in 5th place this week, John O'Keefe joined 4 other players on 39 points. His 18 on the back nine was the worst of the lot, hence his 5th position. In 4th place and welcome back after playing with us in Hua Hin, was Alex Field with 20 points on the back nine. Second and third places had to be decided with a count back on the last six holes, with Jim Brackett coming of worse and loosing to Bob Lindborg who still continues his good form. Dennis Pelly came out tops this week with a fantastic 42 points from his 13 handicap.

Was he chucking out the anchor cause he thought he bagged it with 39 points? Ivan Plunkett loves the A&B courses except if you make him play from the blue tee's, and since we were of the white's he had a fabulous round as well with 39 points to give him 3rd spot. Jim Brackett had the best back nine of the three 39 pointers and he finished in 2nd. Bob Lindborg who have been struggling for a while and who's handicap has been creeping up and up came good today with a fabulous 43 points to finish 1st.

Burapha Sat 3 Sep Skins

Welcome back to John Low and his crew from New Zealand that joined our regular Saturday golfers for a fun day out. As mentioned previously, Saturday golf is a bit more laid back, with lots of beer and even music on course and the only time that we do allow gimmies. The reason being that it is a skins competition where each hole carries a reward for the lowest net score, so it has a bit of a matchplay feel to it..

Carl Sellick played yet another amazing round with a gross 72 and with 40 points he was the clear winner on the day. However, being a skins comp does mean you have to get your birdies on the right holes (as a low handicapper), and his great round wasn't good enough for any skins! Instead, Shaun Pullen got a crucial net birdie on hole 7 and 8 and fabulous net eagle on the par 5 15th hole to bag him a total of 9 skins. The other 9 skins were gobbled up by the Kiwi boys with Geoff Christie getting a nice windfall of holes 16,17, 18 wrapping around to make his birdie on hole 1 count for 4 skins. John Low's birdie 2 on hole 12 ensures that he got 4 skins and Gary Bancroft got in with a skin on his birdie on hole 2.

Our pot & skins Saturday format is gaining good traction and what a great bunch of regular Saturday players they are. This format encourages a great bit of camaraderie, and not serious at all. The rules are a bit more matchplay lenient and it's allowed to give your playing partners a gimme. Don't be surprised if you hear David play a bit of rock music, or be offered a San Miguel on the first tee. Whilst the game is played in earnest, be willing to have a bit of good laughter as you make your way around with a great bunch of blokes. Another feature of our Saturday golf is that (by popular choice), winnings is drunk at the bar, and if you are not there, the boys will have a few on your winnings on your behalf!

From the 14 players this week's lowest score was played by Wez Smartwho had a tremendous game albeit from the girly tee's by his standards. He scored an awesome 77 gross to finish with 42 points. What makes things even better, is that he scooped up 8 skins, and the big win combined with the skins off course prompted a bell ring which set the tone for the rest of the day (and ended up with Craig DoneThat Blacklockand Shaun Pullen doing 80's soul rock shuffles by 9pm! Such is our Saturday's nowadays!) Other skins: Duncan Rocchi (3), Darren Yates and Daryl Clark (2 each), Neil FarrellPer Lövgren and Craig DoneThat Blacklock 1 each.

Another fairly busy day at Burapha saw two divisions compete on this windy day. With the C&D courses closed, it was a bit slower than usual but not too many complaints. 

Competing in two divisions, Bob Mattes got 4th place with 35 points in the B division, James H. Little made it onto the podium for the 3rd time in as many weeks with his awesome 37 points, (Barney) Jeffrey Clarksonplaying better and better with an excellent 39 points, and star performer in the B division this week being Peter Moon finishing with an excellent 40 points.

In the A division, John Fitzgerald had 36 points for 4th, with Geoff Harrison getting the better of John on countback to make it to 3rd place. In 2nd place, Dennis the menace Pelly had a great finish with 37 points, but the big winner, by a huge margin and a huge score again, was Sugar Ray Handford with 43 points. The handicap system is now catching up with Sugar, and his projected handicap for next week has been slashed to 15.8, fair dues for a very successful period of excellent golf for Sugar.

Out of 28 players today, Geoff Braithwaite had the only two. Well done Geoff and hope you guys had a good journey back!

Playing the difficult C&D courses, scores were low. Some thick rough off the fairways had most of our golfers struggle to navigate the course and the A division, with handicap up to 18 navigated the course better. It certainly gives credence to the USGA handicap system which gives higher handicappers a higher playing handicap as the course difficulty increases. Having said that, it's clear that Burapha's rating on the A&B course are too generous, considering that it plays a lot easier.

In the B division, Colin Patterson came in with a third place with 32, beaten on count back by Ivan Plunkett who had a better back nine. Peter Moon won B division with 33 points, a testament again of how difficult the course played.

In the A division, Steve Plant scored 35 for 3rd, John O'Keefe in 2nd with 35 its as well and beating Steve on count back, and the winner, Tony McDonough being the only fella to beat his handicap on the day with 37 points.

With cloudy overcast weather and not too hot, it was a perfect day for scoring well, and a third of the field played better or equal than handicap.

Playing well from the Silver tee's, (Bill) William Peach again scored well to finish with 38 points in 4th. In 3rd place,(Jimmy) James H. Little played great to finish in 3rd. He was beaten on count back by John Fitzgerald who recently returned from Ireland to finish in 2nd spot.

A record turnout of 45 players making use of our Burapha Monday promotion, we set off on a 2 tee start on the tough C&D courses. Reports are that the course is in great condition, with the greens mostly in excellent shape. 

A great welcome to Wez Smart, a group of 7 Jomtien golfers led astray by @Harry Vinciency and also our group of 9 Marri Park golf musketeers led by John Leonard joining the Outback festivities. Arriving still tipsy after an all night bender in not unusual to see at the Outback, but @Beau Mette made it to the 4th hole before he though he couldn't play any further. However, some prompt attention by his lovely caddy and another beer or two got him going again until he reached the Outback, where he passed out for a 2 hour nap on the lazyboy in our aircon restaurant. Fresh as a Norwegian Salmon he was after that nap and reports of a quiet early evening was received.

Normally a group of 45 players require 3 divisions, however with 8 two's needing some decent rewarding, we restricted the comp to two divisions. In Division B, Adrian C Shelley scraped into 5th place on 36 points. John Leonard and Barry Macintosh had both 36 points and with the count back going to the last six holes, these gentlemen finished in 3rd and 4th places respectively. Dutchie (Darren Vanderham), scored a good 37 its to finish 2nd and 1st was Kenny Chung, scoring a very impressive 41 points. 

In A division, Colin Goon pipped Per Lövgren for 5th place on count back, with Wez Smart (4th) loosing in turn to Bobby Driggs (3rd) on count back. Swiss Boy Urs Stegman scored a great 37 for 2nd and Robbie Barnes took the 1st spot honours with a great 38 points.

Two's:  Peter Nixon, Robbie Barnes, Tom Novak, Colin Goon, Peter Stonebridge, Ainthira Phisetrit (Caddy from Laem Chabang), James H. Little (Jimmy), and Greg Smith each recorded a two.

First day back from an exhaustingly fun tour to Phuket and a small group of Outbackers played the A&B courses after a very exciting Singha Tournament. The Greens were clearly lightning fast, with the stimp sitting at around 10.2. The pin positions were also in tough positions, and, whilst Burapha A&B clearly gets slaughtered most of the time playing from the white tee's, this wasn't the case to be on Monday. Oh, and by the way, the Outback is running an exceptionally good promotion only for Pattaya resident golfers, with a round including cart and caddy costing only Thb 1,450. This is a full 250 baht cheaper than normal and a never heard of low price at Burapha, so please feel free to come and join us on a Monday to avail of this offer and join a fabulous crowd of golfers.

Sugar came out the winner with 36 points having had an exceptionally good run on the last three holes, with Jim Getty in 2nd and John O'keefe in 3rd.
