The Honiton Golf Club’s Professional’s Open Day is an annual event organised by club professional Adrian Cave, writes Ann Desmoulins.

The 2018 event was supported by a large field, with visitors from a number of clubs taking part, and the action was played out in ideal conditions.

With a generous prize table, the competition was hotly contested, played off 90 per cent handicaps and any combination of men, ladies or mixed.

The very proud winners of the overall prize was the team of Joan Smith and Elizabeth Ward from Honiton with a score of 48 points, which included a brace of twos by Joan that saw her team bank four points in each case and a chip-in for a three by Elizabeth on the par four 18th, again for four points. Definitely a good result for the ladies!

Second were the Honiton pairing of Tim Morris and Mike Wale with 46 and third were a pair from Stover, Jackie Veale and Vaughn Sercombe with 45.

The Ladies’ Prize was won by the home team of Henrietta Bradshaw and Tricia Swindell.

The nearest-the-pin winner for the ladies on the second was Joan Smith, while the nearest-the-pin for the men on the 12th hole was Peter Jones.

The longest drive winners were Keith Thompson for the men and Jane Cross for the ladies. The prizes were presented by Adrian’s wife Julianne.

After this, most competitions were somewhat curtailed last week to accommodate the late summer course maintenance programme, which was somewhat disrupted by rain.
