Well it didn't rain for once but it was bitterly cold. So how great that 18 juniors played in this our first competition of 2014.
As you can see from the above, there were good scores in all divisions. As players in Division B and those in the 9-hole competition have Club Handicaps, it allows me to adjust their handicaps in relation to the scoring and the use of the additional "Stableford Adjustment Scoring System". Oh! Goody. I just love reducing handicaps.
So, in Division B Joe Mellor has reduced his handicap by two shots down to 42. Well done Joe.
Success for Brocton Juniors at the S.C.G.P. Championship!
Juniors involved in training with the County Academy Programme during the year 2013/2014, were invited to play in The Staffordshire County Golf Partnership Championship at Drayton Park (20th Feb 2014). The Championship was open to those with a CONGU handicap.
Due to the extremely wet weather conditions of the last few weeks the hollow tining planned for course maintenance week has been cancelled as ground conditions are not suitable, it is also unlikely to be possible to top dress at the moment.
The maintenance programme will be modified to suit the conditions. Instead we will be carrying out a less aggressive solid tining.
Please still give priority to any greenstaff on the course.
Due to the less intensive programme play on the course will be less restricted next week.
