The weather was kind for the Axe Cliff ladies Invitational which had just one sharp shower to contend with, writes Dave Bruce.

Lady captain Jill Wellington presided over a well-attended event which drew guests from all over the county and further afield.

Jill presented an exceptional array of large potted plants, probably grown, with love, by hubbie Simon, to the various winners.

When everyone came in they were treated to an excellent rolling buffet from top chef Wendy, who has built a fine reputation for her fare and cooking, especially for its quality and quantity.

The format for the competition was a Bowmaker stableford for teams of three with all three scores to count on first six, then two on next six with only one to count on final six holes.

Jo Donmall certainly knows how to pick her guests as she ,Julie Casper and Lou Vassie won with a fantastic score of 82 points.

Paula Heasman, with guests Jean Falconer and Caroline Finalyson, had to fight hard for second spot with 78 points, just pipping Sandra Walker and her guests, Ruth Dowell and Kate Cowill on countback.

Paula Heasman was nearest the pin in two shots on the seventh whole Helen Kenworthy was nearest the pin on the 18th.

The Axe Cliff ladies also played their last league match during the past week, at Thurlestone where they enjoyed wonderful views and, at times, golf, but went down four-and-a-half to one-and-a-half, banking four-and-a-half points for their efforts while the home side took nine points.
