The 2016 Cliffords Trophy competition took place on 20th July. The resident host venue for this event, Channels Golf Club, was looking in excellent condition on a very warm sunny day.
The players found the morning breezy conditions making the conditions difficult on the par 69 course. Josh Cardy (Channels) posted the early 1st round lead of 72, but this was quickly followed by 70’s from Jordan Wallace (Abridge) and Jack Dyer (Rochford Hundred). However, the lead at the half way stage was held by George Leversuch (Wanstead) with a very good level par 69.
In the afternoon the breeze dropped a little and the subsequent scoring reflected the slightly easier playing conditions. Of the early starters in the afternoon Dominic Piccolo (Channels) returned a 70, and Joshua Read recovered from a disappointing first round returned what was to be the low round of the day, an excellent 68. Lukas Warren (Thorndon Park) then came in with a level par 69, and Christopher Chaplin (Rochford Hundred) and Shay McQueen (The Warren) returned afternoon rounds of 70, the latter two setting the Clubhouse lead at 146. Josh Cardy continued his consistent form this year with his second 72 of the day for a 144 total, but that was narrowly pipped by Jordan Wallace whose second round 73 gave him an aggregate 143 total. The day was won however, when first round leader George Leversuch completed his day with a second round 70, giving him a total of 139, and a winning margin of 4 shots over the field.
There were prizes for the top four places in the scratch competition and two places in the nett competition, all graciously sponsored by the owners of Channels Golf Club, the Stubbings family. The winner of the nett competition was also George Leversuch with 137, followed closely by Shay McQueen with 138.
