The August Monthly Trophy Game was held at Staffield Golf & Country Club. We were delayed in starting today as there was heavy rain but we eventually got off at around 8:30am or so. However the rain persisted for the first 9 holes making it a bit of a slog dealing with sodden gloves and golf club grips. However by the back 9 the rain stopped making it more pleasant.
The course was in very good condition despite the rain and the greens really excellent. There were only a few small patches of water which we had to get relief from on the greens.
Due to the late start we decided to have lunch at the club instead of the drive back north to East of Highway Restaurant.
Some high scores today were recorded due to the rainy conditions but we did have some good scores in the first few places. Winner of the August Trophy was Mike Smith with a 96 for 40 points – congratulations Mike! Runner up was Jeff Pearce with 93 for 39 points, receiving a bottle of wine kindly donated by Ricardo Castro. 3rd place was Mike Williams with 87 for 38. Best gross of the day was Andrew Cseszko with an 84 ….. although we were about to amend this to 85 for the extra stroke he took with ReinLi’s club to break his car window after locking his car keys in!!
