In the Axe Cliff Seniors’ annual invitational game, played last week, some 25 members invited guests from all over the South West to show off our lovely course and entertained them with a cooked breakfast, before going out as pairs, followed by sandwiches and drinks when coming in, writes Dave Bruce.

The weather was dry and warm and perfect for good scores and it turned out to be a most enjoyable day with first place going to Chris Walker and his guest Derek Keen from Honiton with an excellent 48 points and they were the last to go out.

In second place was our own Bob Berry with his guest Rod Armitage, on countback with 44 pts from vice captain Bob Graham, playing well, and his guest Bill Eaton. Nearest the pins went to Tony Strong, who somehow managed to stop his ball on the short and difficult par three 11th, and Chris Walker, who saved his drive with an excellent second shot to the par four 13th.

Tony and Chris also managed twos with Paul Curtin’s guest, Guy Stockwell. Dave Bruce, our captain, was surprised that his Fitbit showed that he had walked over seven miles with over 17,000 steps earning him his Marathon Badge since getting the gadget on his birthday, last month, from his daughter Victoria. Dave was pleased to see a good number of people from a handicap organisation enjoying a meal and outing in the clubhouse during his presentation. He was told that their highlight was being brought up our hill in a fleet of golf buggies as their coach was too big!
