South Staffs 3.10.18

Notwithstanding it was October 3rd, the Indian summer showed no signs of abating.

It is some time since we visited this beautiful Staffordshire parkland course where we are always made very welcome by Sue LeBeau and her team.

South Staffs has recovered very well from the lack of water this summer that I know many of you have seen blight the fairways at your golf clubs.  The course was in good condition and a measure of the outstanding greens is the fact that there were no less than 17 twos recorded;  Mick Webb’s team alone had 5 on their card!

First off was Martin Gadsby in a team of four Teetours virgins who came down from Uttoxeter (not Inverness).

Teetours fame is spreading; first it was Matthew Fitzpatrick’s father and brother playing in our events and now we have Padraig Harrington’s brother, Columb who came with his lovely partner Kaye Mater. Clearly golfing talent runs in the family and the 4 handicapper took the prize for nearest the pin on the 11th and bagged at two as well.  

5 handicap Neil Brannigan once again drove down from Cheshire and expressed his delight that for 5 miles he saw no traffic whatsoever  - (Nothing to do with the multiple pile up he may have caused behind him as he was on his phone, shaving, and checking his golf kit while doing 30 in the middle lane
