St. Enodoc Golf Club - English Amateur Championship

English Amateur Championship

After the English Women's Amateur here at St Enodoc, the boys Carris Trophy at Moor Park the championships continue a pace with the English Amateur Championship for Men which starts on Monday 28th July. The event which goes back to 1925 has seen many well known winners who have gone on to greater things in the golfing world. Over the last 15 years 13 of the winners and runners up have played European Tour golf. Two St Enodoc Members have been past winners for in 1966 the late Michael Lunt won at Royal Lytham & St Annes and in 2001 Scott Godfrey won at Saunton where co-incidentally this year's event is taking place.

As usual there is an enormous entry of 288 players, who will play a Medal round on both the East and the West Courses. The top 32 will then play Match play to decide the winner. Josh Walsh is the sole representative from St Enodoc who will play the East Course on Monday at 11.40 and the following day an early start of 7.10 on the West. One of his playing partners is Rhys Cruse from Tiverton who won the Ernie Goodman Trophy at St Enodoc in 2011 who is Joe Cruse's Cousin. There are three other Cornish players having a crack and they are Conor Wilson from Perranporth, Adam Curtis from Bude and Harry Hall from West Cornwall who is playting in the Carris Trophy this week. Good luck to Josh and all the Cornish boys.
