The full results are as follows-
Peter George & Kevin Richards ...
Ten St Enodoc mixed pairs bravely ventured out of the County on Sunday 9th October to the Northam Burrows at Westward Ho! RND lays claim to being the oldest links course in England and is rightly famed for that. Originally designed by Old Tom Morris and modernised in 1908 by Henry Fowler the course is common land and a wayward shot will still put a commoners sheep or pony in danger. In short the place is full of character and history and on Sunday also full of wind and drizzle to add to the...
Our Frank Wills team again failed to progress beyond the 1st round in this winters competition, losing 3 and 2 to Perranporth on Saturday. A full report is awaited and will be posted here on receipt....
Weather as good as we have had all summer was one of the rewards for all those who signed up for our Club Captains Day on Saturday 1st October. This event was also coupled with the Mens Prize Giving Dinner.
Played in teams of four the stableford golf competition had a unique risk and reward scoring system designed to benefit those who chose to play from the Blue tees - but only if the score was par or better - a bogey or worse resulted in nul points. This did not deter Joe Cruse who...
Perfect weather was the order of the day for a change on Sunday 25th September for the home match against Saunton which saw St Enodoc run out the winners 5 - 3.

The Ernie Goodman Trophy has been an annual fixture at St. Enodoc now for many years and is one of the countys premier events. Ernie Goodman was the Professional at St. Enodoc for 25 years, starting in 1956. As usual, the benign conditions did not last and a very pleasant morning turned nasty in the...
The Champion Club Tournament was held at The Scarcroft Golf Club in Leeds on 3rd and 4th September and Scarcroft has some trees!!!! Not a long course,(6456 yards par 71) but a course that demands that you fade it sometimes, draw it at other times and it even invites you to hit it straight at times! A good test for all. You had all the English counties there and we were there not only as Club representatives but proudly representing the County as well. Steve Chapman led the team with...
Fifty-nine players teed off on Saturday the 3rd of September to compete for the coveted Presidents Cup. This was a drawn competition playing predominantly in 3-balls. The early starters got the best of the weather and conditions became increasingly difficult in the afternoon with rain and wind providing some interesting golf. Scoring was difficult in a westerly wind that sometimes made club choice quite tricky.
In the end it was Mark Richards who dealt best with the elements,...
Sunday 28th August saw the playing of one of St Enodocs premier mixed events the Viscountess Clifden Trophy and it attracted a large field of 34 pairs eager to play the full handicap Stableford event. It is always a very hard format to score well in and many of the scores on a bright sunny but cool blustery day reflected it. However all the more meritorious therefore were the winning scores which really were very good under the circumstances of the strong North Westerly...
Congratulations to Joe Cruse who won the Cornwall Golf Union Champion of Champions event on Sunday 21st August. This event which was held here at St Enodoc this year is open to all those winners of Cornish club championships, Joe who won the Magor Gold Medal, was therefore our representative. With a gross 67, some 5 under the Standard Scratch of the day, Joe was 4 shots clear of the field and walked away with the Depot Cup awarded to the best gross score.
Despite the forecast we had sunny weather for the annual Captains Day festivities on Saturday 6th August albeit the wind did increase later in the afternoon. 18 teams of four players took part in this Dallas Scramble event which was played at great pace and produced some excellent scores. The day was not without incident with Anders Tensjo having a hole in one at the 5th hitting a 5 iron into the wind and straight into the hole. Nigel Buse managed to hit his ball into the St Austell...
Serial winner Richard Hawken and partner Richard Lawrence yesterday evening (16th August) won this summers Angus Scott Foursomes match play competition. In the final, and conceeding seven shots, they beat Gary Cooper and Nigel Thomas. After a series of golfing mis-adventures on the 6th, 7th and 8th holes Hawken and Lawrence were soon three down. In Richards words they had to get their game back together quickly, and which they subsequently did by winning a string of holes on the back...
Sunday 31st July saw the Mens Invitation Day with 36 teams of 2 playing a shotgun start better ball Stableford competition off ¾ handicap.

1. Andy Bunt and Adrian Hardy 42...
