Takeshi Hakozaki receiving the Green Jacket from Phil. Also pictured is Russell Birtwistle wearing the infamous wig for having the lowest score.

The Links took 36 golfers to Pattaya Country Club on Monday, 25th July. It has been a long time since this scribe has played Pattaya CC and the upgrades that have been done have made a tremendous difference. The course management and members should be very proud of their green keeping and maintenance staff.

                The number of players meant we had 2 flights with flight A being 0-16 and flight B being 17-36. Coming out on top was Takeshi Hakozaki with the excellent score of 41 points. His nearest challenger was Stu Thompson who returned 39 points.
