The 2015 English Strokeplay was held at Telford Hotel and Golf Resort on 5th and 6th July.

The event is a two day event and played for the Patrick Tallack Classic Trophy.  The winner was Malcolm Elrick guided by his partner Sandie Shaw and runner up was Andy Gilford guided by his wife Mel, alongside the Strokeplay was a Stableford event for the Bill Chamberlain Trophy and this was won by Jim O’Brien.

Here is a view from the winner Malcolm Elrick

Just a few words regarding the strokeplay what a fantastic venue it was we came up on the Saturday and played for the EG cup which is the trophy that Andy Guildford and I played for every year unfortunately yet again we lost and we thought this is going to be a sign of things to come

However,  Sunday morning arrived and we were very fortunate To be drawn with the captain which is always a pleasure to play with along with his guide Geoff Iles.  The first few holes we were matching scores and we were both so impressed the way Barry was playing thinking that he's going to really walk this however our game started to come together and we finished carding a net 63 which was a fabulous score given the previous day results

The second day we were drawn with my lifelong friend Andy Gilford and with Andy Sellars again the golf wasn't that great given that the weather was really poor for all of us but the company as usual was brilliant I'd like to we managed to eke out a win

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking all those involved in the especially all those guides who put up with all to play this great game as without none of this would ever be possible

I would personally like to thank my guide Sandie for all that she has done in my golf over the last two years and this to be our first win in our tournament is a very special moment for as both.
