Playing at Treasure Hill seems to be a problem for many golfers and it doesn’t get any easier, even though the course is in very good condition.
Twenty three players came out today and seventeen of them struggled to get to thirty points total. It’s a mind game for many!!
On this day the weather was very comfortable with a light breeze and not too hot.
Unlike some courses, there is still enough green grass on the fairways to hit from, but some rain will be needed soon.
The greens are in top class condition and playing truly, albeit some of the pin placements were a bit ‘nasty’.
Pierre Zbinden has been playing at Green Valley mostly as he is a member there, but paid us a rare visit for this round, and good to see him again.
Pierre played a steady, if unspectacular game, and put together two even nines of 18 points for his winning total of 36 points.
As usual, Petur Petursson was right at the top of the ladder and, with 33 points, took second spot.
Francis Goyons missed out on a Green Jacket this time, but had a handy score of 32 points for the third place.
Mike Firkin had another steady round of 31 points for fourth spot and the player once known as ‘the Treasure Hill Specialist’,𝑱𝒐𝒉𝒏 𝑨𝒏𝒅𝒆𝒓𝒔𝒐𝒏, won a countback to grab fifth place with 30 points.

Young Min Ko had a terrific score of 23 points for the back nine but, as he had already won a ‘near pin’, didn’t qualify for the ‘best back nine’, much to his surprise, but that’s the way it is.
Where others have quietly had some price increases, Treasure Hill has kept the very good price of 1150 bht all-in which includes a 100 bht voucher for drinks, all excellent value.
