Jacket a Perfect Fit For Adam


The countdown to Thai New Year, Songkran, is on and so is the exodus of Ex-pats to drier parts. This left us with eighteen players headed for Treasure Hill Golf Club.

This day was a public holiday, but the 1700 bht all in holiday pricing is still cheaper and better value than many others around.

Recent rains have given new life to the course as today it was in immaculate condition, with good grass coverage on the fairways and super greens. One player didn’t expect much, but was pleasantly surprised at how good the course was presented.


We played lift, clean and place even though carts did go on fairways, but the course was firm enough that we tended to forget LCP mostly.

The weather was a little more friendlier with some nice cooler breezes and some cloud cover in between bouts of hot sun.

It is never expected to see big scores here but three players did manage to equal or better their handicap.

Adam Barton led the way with an excellent 39 points on his last game before going back to work. He works shifts so will be back soon.

Then came a countback situation between Gerner Lykke and Petur Petursson both scoring 36 points. Gerner won that countback.

In fourth place was George Mueller having a good round with 35 points.


Near pins:  Petur Petursson (2 and 6),  Masa Sugaya (13) , Kevin McEntee (17)


Best Front Nine (non winners)  – David McKey – 17 pts

Best Back Nine (non winners)  –  Will Brown   –  21 pts


Results from Treasure Hill:

1st  Place – Adam Barton (17 ) -37 pts

2nd Place – Gerner Lykke (14) -36 pts c/back

3rd Place – Petur Petursson (6) – 36 pts

4th Place – George Mueller (14) – 35 pts c/back


Bryan Barrell wasn’t sure which one he would get, thinking he could have both, but he was only allowed one, so it was the “silly hat” for him for having the lowest score on a nine.

Iain Craigen has just returned and wasted no time in getting back his favourite headwear, the “wig”, for having the least impressive score for the day.

We got away with a rain-free day, presentations were completed early and soon everyone had slipped away to whatever  their next activity.
