The 2018 MT Stafford Trophy Final was played on Saturday 29th of September between Peter Francis and Mike Kelso against Richard Peacock and Tony Martin.

It was a final of two halves. Richard and Tony got out to a great start with 2 two birdies in the first 5, Peter and Mike hung in there and turned 3 down after 9 before winning three in a row to get back to square with some equally quality golf.

A couple of holes swapped hands before Peter with a fine up and down on 17 managed to gain the advantage and with the last being halved in pars Peter and Mike won the contest 1 up.

Congratulations to all 4 with the quality of the final and the overall campaign.

We look forward to presenting Peter and Mike with their first Honour Board win at the Presentation Night.

Thanks to our President Phil Wikman for being the Trophy Donor of this great old event first played in 1962 to honour the services of Michael (Mick) Stafford. Mick was the Professional at the Golf Club from 1921 to 1970. He commenced on the 24 March on 30 shillings a week and a guarantee of 12 months service. On the last Saturday of June 1970 he finished that service with the Club. Mick was a life member of the PGA of Australia.
