This is the first time that this trophy has been played for. It has been presented by Mary Allen in memory of her husband David who died in September last year. As most of you will be aware, David was our Assistant Junior Organiser from 2010. He was also the Chairman of The Staffordshire County Golf Partnership Academy Committee.
We decided that this trophy would be played for as a “Pairs Competition”, with a draw for partners. Players from Division A, those with a CONGU handicap would have a partner from the Division B, those who hold an 18-hole Club Handicap. The competition was a Greensome Stableford with a stroke allowance of half the combined handicaps. However, a Division B player would only be allowed to play from a maximum handicap of 30. So, in many cases some youngsters had to lose shots before they even started!
This trophy was presented in 2006 by the family of Bryan Baker MBE in his memory. Bryan was Captain In 1988 and President in 2003.
Congratulations to Marcus, not only for winning this trophy but, for his handicap reduction by 0.6, now playing off 18. Well done Marcus. Good to see our Captain and Vice-Captain doing so well.

On Friday August 22nd The County Ladies (SLCGA) organised a Beginners and Bronze Division Competition at Stone Golf Club. These events were organised in conjunction with Rob Bluck and Tom Gibbs from The Three Hammers Golf Complex, where the girls also have County Organised coaching.
The day was split into three divisions: An 18-hole Stableford competition for the older girls; a 9-hole Stableford competition for the younger girls and a fun “flag” competition for the very young ones.
I am delighted to report that 1st in the 9-hole competition was Caitlin with 22 Stableford points and 2nd place went to Maria with 18 Stableford points. Fabulous going girls, exceedingly well done.
