CP Foods Trophy - Medal Day
This year’s CP Foods trophy, was held at The Gloucestershire Golf Club on the 26th
July on what was a very hot and steamy Saturday afternoon. It should, of course,
been in the morning but the fixtures secretary had messed up the tee times which
meant he had to spend his Friday evening trying to contact everyone to let them
know of the change. Clearly he felt embarrassed by his faux pas as although he
is the sponsor of the event, as well as being vice-captain and shortest member
of the society, he opted to go off for a dirty weekend in Wales muttering that
it was all the fault of the golf club.
change of times there were one or two withdrawals but in general it was a very
good turnout of 19 players on what is traditionally a time of year when turn out
is low. Due to the hot weather, there was none of the ridiculous trousers that
have become the standard
attire for this year, instead the locals were treated to an abundance of
white nobly knees and varicose veins…
Out on the course there were mixed reviews. There were a number of
interesting holes mixed with some uninteresting ones and a few of the
greens were a little shabby, but in general it was a good course and was
a good test of golf, particularly in the hot conditions. Scoring was
clearly difficult as the results for the day proved, with the winning
score being 74.
honors for the day went to Keith Taylor in first place with his net 74,
followed by Andy Price in second and Ron Amphlett in third, both on
75. Best Stableford was Cuth McDowell whose 34 points managed to earn
him that last minute qualification into the Angel Cup. The two nearest
the pins were won, as usual, by Andy Price and Andy Owen, there are
calls to scrap the nearest the pin for next season in favor of two
longest drive holes!!
