Ninety ladies, from all over Devon, competed at Axe Cliff in the Devon Vets Spring Meeting, writes Dave Bruce.

The day dawned and the weather threw everything at the lady golfers with exceedingly strong winds, warm sunshine and freezing cold rain showers!

However, the whole day proved to be a great success with the course looking fabulous and the clubhouse staff being friendly and most welcoming. The overall winner, who received the Ord Cup, was Maggie Jeffs from Stover Golf Club with a very good 35 points. The runner-up, winning the Salver, was Marcia James from Okehampton.

Axe Cliff Ladies figured in the prizes with Jo Donmall winning the Bronze One Division and Barbara Cummings coming in fourth in the same division.

There were two twos from Penny Lyne from Sidmouth on the 14th and Bee Baker, from Libbatton, on the 11th.

Barbara Cummings, the Devon vets captain, thanked all who helped the competition go smoothly and raised good funds, from the raffle, for her chosen and worthy charity, The Devon Freewheelers.
