first_imgFriday, Oct. 25, Treasure Hill G.C.With all the rain that has fallen in Pattaya and surrounding areas recently it was, perhaps, a surprise that the 92 competitors in October’s monthly tournament had a rain free day on this challenging course.  The weather was cool, by Thailand standards, and a slight breeze made it great for golf.  The course was presented in good condition and the management saw to it that we had the course exclusively to ourselves, which saw most rounds completed in just over 4 hours.  Golf Chairman Joe Mooneyham and Social Chairman Nigel Cannon arrived early to prepare for registration and place the appropriate markers on the course and to find staff and caddies ready for our day.  With some last minute adjustments to the starting sheets all were away on time at the 1st and 10th tees.Low gross champion Mike Allidi.Treasure Hill has a reputation as a tough track, however, there were some good scores in all flights.  The current PSC Club Champion Mike Allidi (2) showed his championship qualities with a superb 72 gross to take the low gross prize.
