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 Antony Nash playing at number two and Rob Davies playing at number three.

Each player played in a three ball match accompanied by players from Sussex and Hampshire. Steve carded a score of 75, Antony had a nightmare 84 and Rob scored  77. It was difficult to console them but all three were more than determined to make a better showing on the Sunday.

An early 8 am start saw Steve again lead from the front only this time it was a 2 ball match with the players from Sussex withdrawing because of an injury to one of their number. Steve carded a score of 78. Antony, not surprisingly, scored level par, he had even got himself to 2 under at one stage...What a difference a day makes! Rob came in with a 75 and deserves much credit for his performance. The players would want to thank the Club for its support and the members for their good wishes and also the invaluable support with both kit and advice from Nick Williams. Members interested in the full results can access detail on the EGU web site.
