Old Stopfordians' Golf Society: Review of the 2023 season

Old Stops, current pupils and staff compete on the golf course

Alumni News

The Old Stopfordians’ Golf Society enjoyed a fun-filled season with a number of tournaments held across various courses. It was fantastic to see many of these being well attended by Old Stops as well as current pupils, parents and staff of SGS.


The Founders Day tournament at Davenport saw approximately 30 golfers compete with School beating the Old Stops to retain the Withington Trophy. Matt Eekelaes winning the individual trophy with 40 points.

The Worth trophy took place during the Inter Oldies at Bramhall GC. Ian Shaw from Kings Macc very sportingly allowed 3 from 4 scores to count for the Old Stops which was just enough to allow Anton Hanson, Alex Ehegatner, Roger Coleman and Andy Roberts to retain the Trophy by the barest of margins.

We did not do so well in the Barclays Cup Inter Old Boys despite 4 steady scores. Roger Coleman had 36 points and wins the Inchley Bowl. Roger now joins a select group who have completed the career "Grand Slam" of major OS Golf.


The Oppida Cup was played at Romiley Golf Club on the 13th of September. The weather was set fair and 26 golfers enjoyed the superb conditions of Romiley Golf course. Huge thanks are owed to Alex Ehegartner for all his efforts in coordinating the school, teachers and parents which enabled this tournament to take place. Many trophies were decided on the day as follows:

Oppida Cup Winner - Anton Hansen with 35 points (Anton Hansen also won the combined annual score of the Jubilee Cup).

Jubilee Cup Winner - James Hopley with a gross score of 73.

School Trophy Winner - Nathan Hopley with a gross score of 76.

School Shield (for the best Stableford) - Zak Waterhouse.

Mr Dunlop - John Hilditch


2024 events are as follows:

Founders Day (All Welcome) Friday 15th March TBC
Worthy Trophy (Old Stops/Teachers) Thursday 9th May Knutsford GC
Inter Oldies (Old Stops/Teachers) Wednesday 3rd July Bramhall GC
Oppida Cup (All Welcome) Wednesday 18th September TBC


If anybody has a suggestion for the location for the Founders Day competition and for the Oppida Cup then I will look into the possibilities. It would be great to see plenty of people taking part in next years events. Please let me know if you can attend.

Best wishes for the festive season and Happy New Year.
