It has been well over a year since Links Golf last paid a visit to Green Valley. Recent good reports of the course condition convinced us to make a return to check it out.
We were not disappointed as the presentation is all that we had been told.
Fairways nicely cut and, perhaps, the most run we have had at any course recently. The greens are excellent and playing truly.
The price of 1500 bht all-in included 200 bht for drinks or food purchases, which made it good value.
John Chelo has had a couple of quite ordinary scores recently and his handicap has blown out a few strokes, but he has saved his best for this return to Green Valley, by producing a very good score of 38 points to grab first place.
Was it the pressure of playing off scratch handicap or just having a couple of off days? Paul Smith was, unusually, not in the placings for the past couple of games, but you can’t keep him out for long.
A handicap equalling 36 points has taken him to second place.
Taking out the final placing, Paul Anderson who found some form last week, continued on by handing in a solid 35 points.

1st Place – John Chelo (22) – 38 pts
2nd Place – Paul Smith (1) – 36 pts
3rd Place –Paul Anderson (22) – 35 pts
The weather stayed hot and still, but some relief came, sparing as it was, when the dark clouds moved in overhead, which created some breeze.
Although there were groups from another society in front of us, our three groups moved along at a good pace and finished in good time.
𝑷𝒉𝒐𝒕𝒐: Winner, 𝗝𝗼𝗵𝗻 𝗖𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗼 (C), in a blast from the past, with Michael McGuigan (L) and Pat Murphy (R).
