GPT travelled only 23miles to St Austell Golf Club from yesterday's event at a very successful Trevose Golf Club.
St Austell is a hidden gem designed by James Braid, James famous for his signature par 3's around the world. Many of you will know Royal Troon's The Postage Stamp, probably his most famous. St Austell Golf Club is extremely proud to be a member of the Association of James Braid Course. Membership of St Austell Golf Club makes all members eligible for reciprocal discounts at over 250 James Braid courses. St Austell's 18 holes measure a challenging 6,042 yard par 69 parkland course with wonderful countryside views, a challenge to golfers of all levels.
We were told to Say "hi" to Greg in the bar - a great host. to all who took part and also to both Scott & Steve. The course is a bit quirky on a couple of holes but generally very fair. The greens were a bit slower than we had yesterday and this caught a few out who played Trevose yesterday.
36 golfers from yesterday took part and welcomed the calmer conditions that lasted the whole day, some fun had in the clubhouse before the competition of golf even started,
with 8 having a putting contest on the putting green.
Congratulations to D.Allen and N.Allen who fought off a great challenge from D.Cilla and D. Hazel to win the Handicap prize.
Just as close was the Gross prize with R. Tredinnick and C. Coxon piping T.Hoare and M.Jackson
Longest Drives saw for the men A.Shelly and ladies G.Price knock some impressive drives to claim victory.
NTP On the par 3 signature hole only 98yds went to C. Allen
Many finished today's round with a trip down to Cape Cornwall on the Atlantic Coast for tomorrow's event
