  8. Interesting question. We would probably have allocated you to the USA team on the basis of them being a closer neighbour than Europe. Looking forward to your arrival Chris. I assume you will play in the RideHer Cup and the Misty's Open? Same shirt size as last year? Doggie
  9. Brian. You informed me at Phoenix golf club last year that you did not consider our organisation of golf events met your exacting standards and that you had no intention of entering any further events. That effectively means that I have decided to count you out.
  10. The dates for the RideHer Cup are on a new post in this section. Misty's Open will take place on Monday 12 November.
  11. IMPORTANT NEWS! The 11th Solar Golf RideHer Cup competition will take place at St. Andrews 2000 (4 ball and Scramble) on Wednesday 7th November and Burapha Golf Club (singles) on Friday 9th November. We are delighted to announce that a party will take place at Burapha Golf Club right after the golf on Friday with a pig roast and poolside buffet.

The trophy presentation will take place in FLB Bar later in the evening and will continue long into the night.

  12. Sorry for the delay in replying Carling. I have just agreed the dates and rates with the golf courses so my full post is imminent. Doggie
  13. That's a cracker! Reminds me of many years ago when I was in the mobile comms business. One of my sales guys had a dispute with a customer after we lost a load of our antenna sites during a big storm. The customer was claiming for loss of earnings due to a lack of radio coverage. I told the sales guy to refer him to the contract section entitled Force Majeure. Then I listed to him calling the customer back. "It's not our fault mate. It's all down to Forbes Macguire!". Result - one very baffled customer and end of dispute!
  14. I've started putting 20 baht aside each day to save up for your arrival Dunghie. Good memories of Heaven a number of years ago. I'll never forget when "know it all" Brian was in the room for over 2 hours. Turns out he fell asleep while the tart was running the bath and she couldn't be arsed to wake him up. She watched the Thai soapy from beginning to end while he was knocking the z's out!

This annual festival draws golfers from throughout the world to share a unique golf and party experience in paradise. Many of the players return year after year and others are very welcome to join us for the first time. Here’s what’s happening during this 2 week festival. Many golfers have already signed up for the events. You can register for the events by sending us an email, visiting our offices at Tara Court on Pratamnak Hill or at the registration evenings on 30th October and 1st November. Sunday October 30th – Ride Her Cup Registration Evening Sign up for the RideHer Cup and other golf events at the FLB on Walking Street between 8.00pm and 10.00pm. Monday 31st October – Practice day – Burapha The practice round at Burapha will tee off on A and B courses from 10.30 am.

Tuesday November 1st – Ride Her Cup Captains team announcement There will be a change of USA captain this year. Bob Williams will captain team USA for the first time assisted by Scott Javer. Duncan Mathieson will captain the European team for the second year in succession. The captains will meet at 8.30 pm at FLB to pick the teams. The teams and pairings will be announced at 10.00 pm Wednesday November 3rd – The 2011 Ride Her Cup – Round 1 – Burapha GC. Possibly the greatest golf event in Asia, this prestigious tournament celebrates its 10th anniversary. This match play event pitches Europe’s finest golfers against the cream of the USA. Mix in a few Aussies, blend with a Thai or three and you have a field of the world’s greatest golfers! The event is delicately poised with 4 victories to USA, 4 to Europe and 1 draw. To celebrate the 10th anniversary, the event will take place over 2 rounds with each player participating in 4 x 9 hole matches. The bus will leave The Avenue shopping centre on Second Road at 9am prompt. Tee times are from 10.30 onwards. The bus will take us to a Thai restaurant near the golf course for dinner after the golf. The bus will return to The Avenue at 8pm approx. The first round will take place at Burapha over A and B courses with groups teeing off at A1 and B1.Each group will play 2 matches with a point available for each match. Course A will be played as a Texas Scramble/Ambrose. Both players in the team hit their drives and select which drive will be used. Thereafter, the players each hit a shot from the position of the best-placed ball until the team has holed out. The second ball should be placed within one scorecard length of the selected ball and surfaces cannot be changed. The handicap allowance will be 1/4 the combined handicap of the 2 players in the team. Strokes will be according to the stroke index of the hole. So, a team comprising an 18 and a 28 handicapper will receive 11.5 (12) strokes and a team with a 14 and an 18 will receive 8 strokes. In this case, the first team will receive 4 strokes for 18 holes and this will be reduced to 2 strokes for course A to be taken on the 2 holes with the lowest stroke index on course A. To add a bit of spice, the team will be required to select a minimum of 3 drives for each partner on the 9 holes. The holes will be played as straight match play and the match will be determined as a win (1 point) or a half (1/2 point) for the 9 holes. Course B will be played as four ball better ball. Each player in the team plays every shot at the hole and the best net score for the hole wins that hole. The handicaps for the four balls will be full handicap allowance stroking off the lowest handicap player. So, in the above example, the 14 handicapper will play off scratch, his partner will get 4 strokes and the players in the other team will get 4 and 14 strokes respectively for 18 holes. The number of strokes received will then be halved for the 9 holes that are being played. Strokes will be allowed according to the SI off the holes on course B. The four balls will also be match play with the lowest net winning the hole and the match determined as a win or a half. Friday November 4th – Ride Her Cup Second Round – Laem Chabang The bus will leave The Avenue shopping centre on Second Road at 10.00 am prompt. Tee times are from 11.34 onwards. The bus will take us to Cabbages and Condoms Restaurant on Pratamnuk Soi 4 for dinner after the golf. You can bring a partner to dinner but you must book and pay for this at the same time as your registration. The additional cost for a partner is 600 baht. The bus will return to The Avenue after dinner. The presentation party will take place at FLB Bar at 10.30 pm. The format at Laem Chabang will be singles match play. You will tee off in 4 balls selected by the Captains. Each 4 ball will comprise 2 players from the USA team and 2 players from the European team. There will be 2 singles matches – USA vs. Europe – in each 4 ball on each 9. The opponents will switch on the second 9. Handicaps will be calculated as ¾ of the difference between the 2 players and shots will be taken according to the stoke index. The stroke indices at Laem Chabang are 1 to 9 for each 9 so the number of shots received will be halved to allow for the fact that only 9 holes are being played. The bus will depart for Cabbages and Condoms when everyone has showered and changed. Please remember you are responsible for your own golf clubs or any sets you have rented from Solar Golf. Dinner will be served as a buffet around 7 pm. Your food is included in the entry fee – please lay for your own beverages. The bus will depart for The Avenue around 9 pm. We will meet up again at 10.30 pm in FLB Bar. The entry fee for the Ride Her Cup is 6,900 baht. This includes 2 rounds of golf with green fee, cart and caddy, transport by coach, polo shirt, cap and 2 dinners. Please pay your entry fee at one of the registration evenings. Tuesday November 8th – Misty’s Open at Phoenix. The Misty’s Open is an individual stabelford event. Handicaps will be calculated using the 36 system. Transport will leave either Tara Court or The Avenue shopping centre on Second Road at 8.30 am prompt. Players will tee off as 4 balls from 10.00. Transport will return to the Avenue and Tara Court at 1830 approx. Entry fee is 2,900 baht per player – payable either at FLB on one of the registration evenings or at the Solar Golf Offices in advance.
