This Saturday there was a tournament held that took place at both disc golf courses on the island. Both courses are 9 holes each. 2 rounds on each course were played for a total of 36 holes. The winner of the event to be named “King of the Island”.
First and Second place were only separated by 1 stroke. It came down to the second to last hole. Hole 8 both Dave Lehmann (owner of Laem Dor Disc Golf) and Eric Fitzsimons (Reigning Korean Disc Golf Champion) from Canada were tied. Dave made a great drive and made a long putt for a birdie on 8. Eric ended picking up a Boagie. Michael Arseneault came him at third place.
There were 4 Closet to Pin holes. Nigel Mills won both Hole 1 and Hole 5 on the Laem Sor Course. Dave came was able to get Hole 1 on at Samui Disc Golf. Chris Vawter took the CTP on Hole 5. All four CTP’s were 500 baht each. There were 2 discs given out for 6th and 7th place. These were given to help the lower half of the field considering it was a scratch tournament. View got the first disc. For 7th place there was a playoff between Chris A. and Nick. Chris was able to win the disc on Hole 1.
It was followed up with a bbq. It was a great day of golf for everyone. A special thanks to Eric for coming down to our island and helping out our locals players with disc knowledge. 🙂
