The October Stableford at Honiton Golf Club was a closely contested event with Dave McGrath winning on countback from Derek Keen, both scoring an impressive 38 points in the changing autumnal conditions. 

Although Keen had three birdies in his impressive round, it was McGrath who held is nerve with a terrific par on the final hole. Back in third place was Tony Williams with 34 points. 

Despite ferocious winds and driving rain, 28 hardy souls ventured out for the Seniors Monthly Stableford. While it was tough for the early starters, those coming in later were seriously affected by the conditions, which also impacted upon the scores, with the best being 37 points from the soggy clubs of Peter Blake.   

He won Division 1, closely followed by David Rouse on 36 points and Jim Wallis on 35. The Division 2 winner was Adrian Bishop with 33 points, with the runners-up being Mike Ward on 32 and David Silver on the same score. 

During the week, the Honiton Seniors team played a friendly pairs match against Lyme Regis, having drawn 3-3 in the away leg.  Unfortunately, the team was two players short and consequently their partners had to play on their own against tasty opposition, with the inevitable result. The final score was 5-1, so it was a deserved win for Lyme Regis anyway. 

A total of 31 Honiton Ladies took part in the medal competition and, although a little blustery, the rain kept away, making perfect conditions for some terrific play.  

The 9 Hole winners were: 1st Danusia White, nett 35, 2nd Jayne Jackson, nett 38. The 18 Hole winners: Div 1, 1st Sarah Loader, nett 74 c/b, 2nd Jackie Seager, nett 74. Div 2, 1st Cathy Williams, nett 71, 2nd Lesley Oxenham nett 73, 3rd Chris Pearce, nett 75. 

There were four teams of four taking part in last week's Tuesday Mixed competition. The format was a better-ball with the best man's score and best lady's score to count. As it was a small field taking part in the competition, there was only one prize and it went to Sue and Paul Ritchie with Vera and Alan Richardson. They scored a total of 83 points, six ahead of their nearest rivals.
