Axe Cliff Golf Club ladies are having a remarkable season, writes Sandra Walker.

This year we entered the Devon League which comprises 18 teams from all across Devon.

We were drawn against four clubs, so we had eight matches in all. At the end of this the Axe Cliff team came out at the top of their table.

The next step was ‘Finals Day’ held at Tiverton Golf Club. Finals day this year meant that the two victorious teams from the morning semi finals had the honour of going back out in the afternoon to play the final.

It was an early start, reporting in at 7.15am for tee off times from 8am onwards. The weather proved to be kind to us, with almost no wind, a tremendous relief after the past week, and the course was in great condition.

Axe Cliff were drawn against Wrangaton ladies in the morning, playing some very tough matches. We waited anxiously for the final match to come in and found to our great excitement and trepidation that we had emerged victorious. Fingle Glen ladies were our next rivals.

Lunch was a brief affair and we headed off to the first tee once more. The afternoon matches were even tighter than the morning’s. Our first player out, Helen Kenworthy was all square on the 18th green so had to go on to the first tee again.

She eventually won on the 20th. All the other games were keenly fought, many going the full 18 holes. Finally the score came in - we had won three matches to Fingle Glen’s four, making us the runners up. Although we were naturally disappointed not to have won, we were, nevertheless, delighted to have achieved such a great result with a very small section.
