North Hill, 31.07.17
At tee-off we had 4 members for today’s round, but before we had finished the first hole we were joined by another member. We then split into two groups of 2 and 3.
Scores were not particularly good today. The winner was Peter Haddon (Smiley) on 32 with Don Bishop coming a close second on 31. Both Smiley and Don Bishop needed to get away quickly, so no photo again.
Great day for golf at Lanna today – 8 members formed 2 groups and whizzed around the course unhindered. Greens appear to have been given a #1 haircut but most of them were a little parched and slow. The fairways had also been cropped so the balls got a bit of a run – which was nice after all the rain we’ve had recently. Leon sometimes joined his group on the fairways but was otherwise usually enjoying his ball-searching nature walks through the forests followed by 4 caddies.
Today we had a tie for runner-up position between Nigel Stubbs and Leon Smiler who had 36 points each, but the winner was Lawrence Nahlik with an impressive 38 points.
Next week will be Stableford around courses 3+1 – not stroke play (NET).

15 Members for todays stroke event in very, very humid conditions. We had a tie for 3rd. with net 75 was Adam and Kuzie in 2nd. was Craig with a net 74 and our winner today with a great score of 74 off the stick and a net 68 was Ronney. Well done to those people. Hope to see a few more on Wednesday.

There were 9 members present for a Stableford round today in humid and overcast conditions. Reverse handicap order today in 3 groups of 3. Unfortunately for us it was a holiday and the course was busy but more because a teaching pro had some young ones under instruction in front of us for the whole 18 holes. The first thing they should teach is course etiquette about holding up 5 groups of golfers while they replay their shots. Marshalls were advised and things improved slightly on the second 9 but it was still a four hour round which is not good for three balls. Our 9 players turned to 8 on the 14th when Roger called it a day. The winner today with a great score of 41 points was Ralph Hamilton with Leon Smiler coming in second with 39 points.

It is with a heavy heart I must inform those who do not know that we lost another of our members on the 21st of July. Lennart Larsson died in hospital after a motorcycle accident. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
Today we had 15 members for a stableford comp. In a tie for 2nd was Adam and Nigel on 35 points but the clear winner today was Frank with 40 points. Well done guys. Have a good weekend and see you all on Monday for a stroke round.
Green Valley Away Game, 27.07.17
After the previous evenings lighting storm and torrential rains (20) members arrived at Green Valley under clear blue skies to compete in a stableford contest. Everyone arrived on time subsequently resulting in a orderly and on-time tee-off from both the front nine and back nine holes. Most players competed their respective rounds in 4 1/2 hours and, as stated above, under clear and sunny conditions.
Relative to the result the following were today’s winners:
- 1st place with 36 points was Frank Schwarz
- 2nd place went to both Jack Cooper and Graham Adams both posting (34) points
- another 2-way tie for 3rd place with 32 points each was Ronny Peters and Jack Kuzina
The Winners Circle: Jack, Frank, Graham
Ten members turned up today with glorious weather for the round. Unfortunately, one early retirement due to injury.
Today’s event was Stableford with a twist. Golfers were paired together for the Mutliplier Event. Partners’ Stableford scores were multiplied together to produce a joint score for the hole and then an overall total.
Winners today were the pairing of Ian Carr and Ashley on 70 points with Terry and Milton a not too distant second with 65 points.

North Hill, 24.07.17
6 members turned up for today’s round. Ian Fraser was a clear winner on 37 with Soren Nielson coming in second on 29.
No photo again.
Another hard day at the Lanna Office. A dozen members arrived (including 3 of the girls) so we had 4 groups of 3 and the rounds were pretty quick. But what is the matter with us all? Scores were dismal and only one person managed a sub-100 stroke round (Well done Nigel). Balls were not rolling on the fairways because of the recent rain I suppose – any excuse!
The winning Stableford scores were 34, 33, and 31 from Keith Taylor, Lawrence Nahlik, and Nigel Stubbs respectively. See you all next week for more of the same unless numbers increase and the game format can be varied a bit.
Mae Jo, 24.07.17
13 players for our stroke round today. We welcome back Kim Anderson for a 2 week break from Australia. The results are in a tie for 3rd on net 73 was Craig and Kuzie in 2nd was Steve on net 72 and still holding form on net 70 was Adam. Well done people. Wednesday will be stableford, hope to see a few more faces.
North Hill, 21.07.17
There were 18 members for todays stableford round under cloudy skies but with no rain. No takers for the birdie hole once again. Yung’s birthday group took a majority of the prizes with Dao coming home with 36 points just beating Smiley Haddon with 35 points and third places were three tied on 32 points Camilla, Yung & Milton. Well done all concerned and see most of you next week.
A big turn out today with 26 members playing in very humid conditions. We had a tie for 2nd with Graham and Ronny on 38 points and our winner for today was Rob on 40 points who just missed a hole in 1 on 17 by 10 inches. Well done people, have a good weekend and see you all again on Monday for a stroke round.
13 members turned out for a great day and the rain only appeared after every one was in.
The ladies showed the men how to score on Moving Tee Day where everyone moved one tee back. Tayakorn won with a creditable 40 points and Denise second on 35.
This Wednesday we had (14) members playing in a Stableford Nassau competition. For a change we completed our entire round without and rain.
As for the results taking the front nine holes was Alex Stewart with (17) points with the back nine holes going to Nigel Stubbs with (20) points. Our overall winner today was Ronny Peters posting a score of (36) points.
Hats off to all of today’s winners and we will see you Friday the 21st for a straight stableford competition.
Not much of a turnout today probably because of the rain that kept up until the 5th hole. Two groups trudged around in the water soaked fairways for over 4 hours with not much to show for their efforts.
Allan Gariano nudged out Julian Wing with 28 points citing that he started and finished with the same ball. That’s easy Allan – you just use different balls on holes 2-17. Winner was Roger Mack, who hasn’t played the course for 5 years, with 33 points.
North Hill, 17.07.17
We had 5 members and no guests for today’s Stableford round. Today we had a little rain not enough to cause concern but enough to make it a pleasant round. The “pleasantness” was not reflectively of the scores unfortunately. The winner today was Ian Fraser on 31 with second going to Denise Reynolds on 30.
Because of the less than incredible scores it was decided that a photo was not appropriate.
Mae Jo, 17.07.17
A wet start to our game today for our 16 members and it was off and on for the whole round. Taking out the front on a net 33 was John, the back was won by Adam on net 32 (76 off the stick) but our clear winner today was Frank with a net 67….well done guys. Wednesday will be stableford nassau. Hope to see you all then.
North Hill, 14.07.17
There were 15 golfers at todays stableford event and it was nice to catch up with Hayden after the game back in country for a few weeks. Todays winner was Leon Smiler with 39 points followed by Yung Beece playing to handicap with 36 points and coming in third was Peter (Smiley) Haddon with 34 points just beating out the captain and a couple of others. I will agree with the Maejo report and the comment “GO THE MIGHTY MAROONS” albeit to the detriment of the few blues supporters, sorry about that Hayden and Brian. No takers for the birdie hole on #15 a tough hole we expect to last for a while. Well done all concerned and we will see you all again real soon .

Only 5 members today — the winner was Ian Fraser on 33 with Ralph Hamilton second on 29.
No photo this week.
Only 7 members at Lanna today, probably because the skies were grey and there was a sprinkle of rain. Not much to be worried about though and the 2 groups completed their rounds in about 4 hours. Outright winner was Lawrence Nahlik with 38 points and a handicap adjustment, while Keith Freeman managed to come second with 35 points.
There is nothing to report on the supposed imminent re-development of the course, with most of the chatter being about the proposed new caddie figure-hugging uniforms that they were told about last week. Many of the caddies are now talking about dieting which will be difficult considering that they never stop eating.
Mae Jo, 10.07.17
13 members played in our comp. today in what was plesant weather apart from the odd light sprinkle of rain.

Today we had 8 members for a very pleasant Stableford round. First place went to Ian Fraser on 38 with Brian Heuston and Milton Reynolds tieing for second place on 33.
It was a very enjoyable round of golf at Lanna today. It was our monthly Stroke-play event around courses 3 and 1 and conditions were excellent. We had 14 members and all 4 groups finished in around 4 hours even though we had a slow group of “little people” being coached for the first 9 holes.
Kim Stogner and Jomo Mac Dermott tied for 3rd place with Net 74, and Leon Smiler came in 2nd with Net 73, but in 1st place with Net 70 was Nigel Stubbs with a near perfect textbook round earning him a slightly lower handicap index.
Now there are rumours flying about from Caddies that Lanna Golf Course is doing some deal with Singha Corporation, and that the course is going to be re-modelled starting with Course 1 as early as next month. New Caddie uniforms and probably a whole host of other changes – apparently there is a big Caddie meeting coming up soon. The Office staff that I questioned knew absolutely nothing about this major event so perhaps today is April 1st in the Lanna Caddyshack. Anyway, I shall endeavour to find out more – watch this space!
Mae Jo, 03.07.17
14 players for todays round of stableford nassau in rather plesant conditions.

Hope to see more of you on Wednesday for a stroke event.
