This event is open to all players who enter and play 5 Stroke Rounds at Club level. The best 4 rounds are calculated and the Gross and Nett winners are sent in to GWA for processing.
The WALGU was founded in 1914 and in 1915 because of the Great War it was proposed “the Union should strike War Medals to be played for over a certain period by clubs belonging to the Union and subject to their approval the competition was to be stroke play?.
Entrance was 6 pence a card and the proceeds were to go to any “Patriotic Fund?. For a few years it was the French Comforts Fund.
In 1927 it was decided to substitute medals for silver spoons. These were to be designed by a Mr. Holdsworth who had designed other Championship Trophies for the Union. Special Result Sheets were to be printed and club winners played in a final usually during one of the rounds of the State Championships. The winner received a case of spoons.
There have been many changes of the format and finals over the years, but the original idea of playing a number of stroke rounds and finding the “Champion Silver Spoon? in a final still persists.
When Linton?s first designed the spoons and why is open to conjecture. Certainly by 1939, they made them.
Medal Rounds in many clubs still are referred to when playing a stroke round but as far as I know only W.A. plays for the beaten silver spoons made by John Linton of Linton?s.
