We were met with a blue sky and lite breeze when we arrived Staffield early morning Nov 26 for the November Champion game and for a change in comparison quite a smooth registration.
Obviously, it had been raining overnight as the workers were busy returning the bunkers sand to its place, others than that the course was in good condition. It became a bit hot later in the game, luckily the breeze increased to compensate for the heat. I noted that the sky was unusually deep blue in some places, very nice.
Postgame lunch at clubs restaurant, the good flow of Carlsberg Smooth Draught compensated for a bit late arrival of the dishes.
We played here two months ago for the September Champion game, today’s scores were not as good as the course played a few shots more:
– Shared 3rd the English Tony Morris and the French Roger Surieux 35 points
– Second the Dutch Martin Belderink 37 points
– And the winner the English Brian Stubbs with 38 points
