Sunday Mixed Trophies

Sadly, as was common amongst golf clubs around Christchurch after the turn of the 20th century, attendances at Sunday Mixed golf events declined markedly year by year. Some golf clubs, resorted to scheduling Sunday Mixed matches at less frequent intervals and others did not schedule mixed matches for the winter period. But the decline in attendance was inexorable and the end of the first decade of the 21st century saw the virtual end of Sunday Mixed matches. At Tai Tapu Golf, very small fields in the last two seasons of Sunday Mixed Golf sadly detracted from the pleasure in winning any of the excellent array of trophies. The proverbial plug was pulled in October 2012. No Sunday Mixed matches have been scheduled since.
Still, the trophies remain and their histories are interesting. Use the links below to learn more about them.
