The Ladies of Axe Cliff enjoyed an away golfing break at Lostwithiel last weekend returning for the Wednesday Stableford all dressed in pink in aid of the Macmillan Cancer Trust, writes Janet Dack.

Liz Wheeldon (25) was the winner with 35 points and in second place Di Rogers (31) with 34.

Seniors' Section. - The final home inter-club match of the season took place on Tuesday and the Seniors returned to winning form with a 5-1 victory over Taunton Vale. Successful pairings for Axe Cliff included Rob Grove /Peter Motson; Chris Jowett /Mick Tomes; John Mant /Hugh Willis; Jack Bannister /Bob Graham; and Chris Walker with Seniors' Captain Peter Knighting.

This win gave Peter the distinction of winning every home match - 12 in total - during his year of captaincy and this achievement allowed him the odd blip in away matches!. ●The October medal attracted 32 contestants on Friday and tricky pin positions made low scoring difficult. Two players returned scores of 72 nett and the winner on countback was Malcolm Glass (18) with Phil Christmas (24) having to settle for second place.

Three players returned scores of 73 nett and third place, again on countback, went to Bob Flay (22) with Tony Strong (9) and Norman Bowles (22) the two players to miss out. There were four twos, from Tony Strong, Malcolm Glass, Rob Heard and Gerry Turner.

●This Sunday, in glorious sunshine, the Main Club competed for the October Medal. Division One winner was Brett Garner (12) with a nett 65 and in second place Gareth Richardson (12) with a nett 70.

Division Two winner was Anthony Hellier (13) with a nett 69 and in second place Mike Wickins (13) nett 70.
