On Sunday 7th January, The 3rd SISBAA Golf Tournament took place once again at Suwan Golf and Country Club. This year we divided everyone into teams of pairs playing in 4s and playing under scramble format rules which means essentially you get 2 shots at each turn and then you choose to play whichever ball is in the best position. The Alumni were represented by Jackie (SHB13) who is now a professional golfer playing with Vicky (SHB20). Jessica (SHB11) played with Tanya (SHB19) to make up the foursome and by all accounts a thoroughly enjoyable round of golf with several pars, birdies and some near misses for an eagle. There was a bottle of champagne on offer for any player who shot a hole in one on the Par 3 15th but unfortunately nobody managed to accomplish this rare feat.
There was a them of there representing the staff featuring Shrewsbury International School Bangkok Riverside Principal Mr. Chris Seal along with Mr. Greg Threlfall (who has a hole-in-one to his name!) and Mr. Simon Aves. The other teams included Director of Golf Mr. Freddy Edmunds playing with Mr. Angus Turkington as a pair alongside the other pair of Wit (SHB18) and Gus (SHB18) alongside Win (SHB18) and defending champion Muffin (SHB18).
It was a close battle with the winner by one stroke after all the handicap calculations were taken into account was Jackie and Vicky who lifted the trophy.
