The WALGU was founded in 1914 and in 1915, due to 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 of the Silver Spoon” still persists.

When and why Linton’s first designed the spoons is open to conjecture however, certainly by 1939, they made them. Due to ailing health in recent years, 2018 will be the first year since then that Linton’s have not commissioned the spoons.

Best Nett Aggregate at State level

Mrs. May Stillman was a ‘joint’ Secretary of Women’s Golf from 1952 to 1955 when the first paid secretary was appointed.  She remained on the Council as Vice Chairman and Chairman of the Match Committee.

She passed away in 1956, and immediately afterward her husband wrote to express his desire to donate a trophy to perpetuate her memory.

After some discussion it was unanimously decided this would take the form of an annual trophy for the winner of the best nett aggregate score of any four rounds in the Silver Spoon Competition.

The original Cup was lost in a house fire in Beverley and the present cup is a replacement.
