On July 22nd the Staffordshire County Union and The County Ladies Association, teamed up to hold their respective Under 14 and Under 12 Championships. This was a special occasion as this is the first time that the Championships have been held under the same banner.
I am delighted to report that the winners of both of the Under 12 Event were Brocton members, Hannah Golding and Ethan Evans. Many congratulations to them both.
Well, as you can see from the results below, the scoring was so good today that the CSS dropped for both the White and Red Tees. Fantastic scoring again from Jake who has now reduced his handicap to 8.6. Congratulations on the single figure handicap Jake and for winning the Oakwood Cup.
Holly has been playing steadily recently and I am delighted to see that today she has broken the CSS barrier. This reduces her handicap down 1.5 shots to 14.8. Good going Holly.
Junior Captain George will, I am sure, be pleased that he is continuing his recent good form getting cut another 0.9 of a shot down to 11.6. Well done all 'round folks. The cup was presented in 1994, the Centenary Year of the club, by Kenneth Davies who has been both Club Captain and President.
Steve Redford has been appointed Front of House Manager/House Manager. Steve Joined us on the 21st July. Reporting to the Food and Beverage Manager, Steve will be in charge of all Front of House operations as well as looking after the House.

Welcome on board Steve!
What a fantastic turn-out we had with 26 juniors eventually taking part and what great scoring all 'round.
In Division A. the Gross Prize went to Jake Sheldon with a 73. As Jake's handicap was 12 this made his Net score 61 – wow, how good is that? Accordingly Jake now plays off 10.4. The Net Prize went to Ethan Evans with a 64. Ethan cut his handicap by 2 and now plays off 26. Second in Div. A. was Hannah Golding, playing to her handicap with a Net 70.
Division B. was won by Alex Dommett-Palaez, with a brilliant 41 Stableford points. Alex plays from the Red Tees and, for his efforts, his handicap has been reduced down to 28. Alex also got Nearest the Pin on the 3rd. This is a young man that we will be hearing a lot about I think! Second, playing from the Blue Tees was Joe Mellor.
