In tough conditions, Peter Clarke and Lesley Farley won the Glanvill Cup Mixed Greensomes at Honiton GC, ahead of Mike and Jane Watts, and Paul Borkowski and Heidi Watson Jones. 

The Children in Need Stableford event was won by Paul Webber with 42 points, followed by Rob Willey 41 and Tim Glenn 39. 

In the Seniors ‘Honiton Waltz, Dave Maggs, Wally Phillips and Dave Morgan played superbly to almost meet par with 71 – off just 75% handicaps!  Jim Wallis, Tony Proudfoot and Chris Shepherd were runners up with 66, followed by Ian Collier, Alex Neil and Peter Blake on 63.   

Neil Price came out as winner of the Centenary Salver, which is awarded to the player with the best four rounds of the seven medals played during the summer, with Tony Proudfoot runner up.   

The Seniors defeated Long Sutton 8-4 in a friendly, while the Mixed Greensomes was won by Cathy Uttley and Mick Swann in tough conditions, and £261 was raised for Children in Need in the Rye Greensomes, won by Ann Trayling and Linda Curtis with 39 points. 

Despite a strong blustery wind, 58 Seniors ventured out for a 3 ball, better ball competition with 2 scores to count.  The first 3 ball out, consisting of Rob Sexton, Brian Phillips and David Rouse scored a creditable 77 points, even though they had the worst of the conditions, with dew on the course and a cold wind.   

They were leaders in the clubhouse for some considerable time, but late starters John Higgins, Mike Ward and Jon Kane with 84, and John Wigginton, Howard Pritchard and Dave Maggs on 81 eventually beat them into third place.   

Afterwards Rob presented Neil Price with the trophy as winner of the Centenary Salver, having achieved the best 4 medal rounds of the 7 played throughout the summer, and prizes to Max Pipe (winner), Andy Manley (runner up) and Steve Blundell (semi-finalist) for their efforts in the Ronnie Pew Cup knockout competition.   

The team of John Tierney, David Carnall and Mark Tierney won the Texas Scramble and congrats to Janet Higgins and Monica Scovell, winners in the recent ladies’ medal.
