The John Astley Trophy was presented in 1997 by the Astley family in memory of John, a senior member of the Club, whose daughter Jenny was a junior member. The competition is an eighteen-hole Stableford, for those with a CONGU handicap. Maximum handicap allowance of 28. In fact, George Williams, who plays in Division B, is John's grandson. Just thought you might like to know.
Congratulations to George Johnson for winning this Trophy. I guess you can see from the scores (apart from the 9-hole competitors) that conditions were tough out there. It was really quite windy.
Congratulations go to Josh Smith who wins The Seighford Shield for the Best Gross score over two rounds and to Marcus Smith (no relation) who wins The Walton Shield for the Best Net score over two rounds.
Great scoring all 'round in all divisions. Jake had his handicap cut 0.2 down to 8.4 and has subsequently had an ESR applied (something Hannah Golding will be familiar with) and been cut a further 2 shots down to 6.4. Many congratulations Jake. Marcus has dropped his handicap by 1.6 down to 26.4.
The Junior Organisers at 4 Clubs, Brocton, Beau, Trentham and Walsall decided that it would be a nice idea to play a competition between ourselves for a Trophy.
The thought behind this was to; introduce younger juniors into competitive golf at other Courses; to have contact with juniors outside our own club; to introduce juniors into the etiquette of social after match chat (well we can but try), before they proceed to playing in senior matches.
