Thursday, February 16th saw the launch of what will be an annual charity event for the Links, a 2-man scramble, with the proceeds of today going to Jesters Care For Kids. The aim was to have 50 pairs teeing off at the popular Eastern Star course, but this was well surpassed, as with the support of many of Pattaya’s other golf groups, a total of 126 signed up for the day.
With excellent prizes for the first four pairs, together with technical prizes at every hole, a big thank you went out to all the corporate and individual sponsors, who made what turned out to be a truly excellent day, extremely successful.
The single figure pairing of Jon Lay and Kari Kuparinen played some excellent golf to register eight, to take first place with a net 61.1 off their 3.9 handicap. Tony Duthie and Kevin McIntosh were next best followed by the pairings of Geoff Parker & Barry Murnin and Pierre Cere and Patrick Engels.
Technical prizes went to Andy Galvin (2), David Lowe, Stephen Donahue, Piere Bietry, Arthur Hancock, John McHugh, Geoff Parker, George Cullen, John Dearden, Barry Murnin, Nicky Clow, Mark Stanley, Yui Bietry, Michael Byrne and Shane Ruddle.
However the big winner of the day was Jesters Care For Kids, for whom over 150,000 baht was raised.
Thank you very much to Links for organising the tournament and to all who helped, supported and played.
