Weekending 7th July

Monday 1st July

Here is the draw for the Monthly Stableford to be played tomorrow.


Tuesday 2nd July

23 Players came out to play in the Monthly Stapleford, including the Cliff Knapp Trophy and Order of Merit. A cooler day for a change, not much wind, just enough to blow some balls into unfindable territory. The greens had been ’spiked’ and were playing slower than usual.

Division 2 members fought hard for the ten points in the Order of Merit with Tom Byrne claiming them on count back. Tom, by being the day’s top scorer also won the Cliff Knapp Trophy for this year. Click here for the latest Order of Merit table.

Division 1 winners:

1st place went to Andrew Boyce on 39 points.

2nd place came Bill Collins with 37points  a.c.b.

3rd place was Peter King on 37points a.c.b.


Division 2 winners:

1st place a.c.b. was Tom Byrne with 40 points, claiming 10 points in the Order of Merit and the Cliff Knapp Trophy.

2nd place a.c.b. came Nick Nicolle with 40 points.

3rd place went to Barry Searles a.c.b. with 40 points.

2’s Competition

Tom carried on his perfect day with the only 2 scored, he achieved it on the 16th hole.

There was some confusion as players logged in on the computer. The computer terminal showed play off the Blue tees instead of the yellow tees as defined for the competition. This complicated manual Stapleford score calculation. The reason for the terminal showing blue tees, is under review. After the competition, the submitted gross scores were evaluated as intended, using 95% Yellow tees course handicap to calculate Stapleford points.

On the Course.

With reference to the fault on the computer, ” showing the incorrect tee”.

Keith contacted Golf Genius to report the fault and received the following reply.

“I just wanted to provide you with an update here. The team have now rectified the issue with the incorrect tee showing on the Terminal prior to a player checking in. This will now show correctly. We apologise for the inconvenience that this has caused and thank you for your patience whilst we investigated this issue.

The fix was released a couple of minutes before I provided you with an update. If players were checking in first thing this morning, then unfortunately they would have still experienced the issue.
