The main club competed this Sunday for the Haven Cup. The format for the competition is a two man Texas Scramble which is always popular with the members. In first place with a nett 65.2 and better back nine were Nigel Pritchard and Peter Keats. Second place with the same score went to Alan Morgan and Robert Gray.The ladies played an away friendly match with Windwhistle in dry summery conditions but Axe Cliff were the losers in a four ball better ball format, 3-1, the winning team being Sandra Walker and Mary Gipps.The seniors' team made the long trek to Tavistock for the first leg of their third round Emerton Court Trophy tie. Despite some close encounters the team went down by 4-1and have it all to do in the second leg next week. Winners for Axe Cliff were Gerry Turner and Malcolm Glass, but the reserve team of Terry Jessup/Gilbert Cox fought out an admirable draw.In fine conditions last Friday, 16 pairings took part in the annual Foursomes match for the Brian Abbott Shield with the entry proceeds going to the Captain's charity. The scoring was generally good with three couples returning cards of 34 points. Winners, on the inward half ruling, were Gerry Turner/John Tucker, with second place going to Brain Wilkes/Roger Wright and third to John Gooding/John D White.In the report on the Seniors' Open last week, the winners of the prize for the teams of combined age of 140 years was omitted. For the winning visitors of this, Keith Mundy and Micheal Conway of Bridport, it was consolation as their 37 point total just failed to win them third prize in the main event. The Axe Cliff winners in the same category, with 36 points, were Keith Wilson and Bill Collier.
