What is the Stovold Trophy?
Pat Stovold is a past Captain and past President of Surrey County Ladies Golf Association. Her support of the seniors, ladies and development of juniors has been crucial to the success of Surrey County Golf. As a means of encouraging talented, young golfers in Surrey to County 1st Team standard, Pat introduced the Stovold Trophy to the South Region golfing calendar in 1997. Sussex also views the 2nd Team as the best place to introduce promising Juniors to the team and it is expected that there will be at least 1 Junior in the matches. The 6 a-side competitions are played against Hampshire, Kent, Middlesex and Surrey with foursomes in the morning and singles after lunch.
Congratulations to Surrey who won the Stovold Trophy for 2019 with Hampshire as runners-up, and Sussex 3rd – well played to all the team.
The Inter-county Stovold matches have been cancelled for 2020, but it is hoped that an alternative 18 hole scratch strokeplay competition will take place on 26th August. This will be hosted by Langley Park GC in Kent providing Government & England Golf permissions allow, following the appropriate social distancing rules. Further details on the event and team selection will follow in due course.
