Axe Cliff senior success for Heard and Morgan The Axe Cliff seniors enjoyed ‘spring like’ conditions for their final Winter League outing of 2017, writes Pete Motson.
Thirty seniors were on parade to play a course that looked in pristine condition on a warm and windless day with wonderful views of the Jurassic Coast, part of which was the beach and Seaton town and, a very green Axe Valley with high tide on the river Axe, to enjoy.
Everyone took advantage of these amazing elements to play some excellent golf.
At the end of the day, first place, with 36 points went to the pairing of Rob Heard and his reliable partner Leighton Morgan.
There were there were some fantastic chip ins from Norman Bowles on the first and Brian Thompson on the difficult 12th hole, giving Norman a birdie and Brian a well deserved par.

The only two came from a pleasantly surprised Malcolm Glass. Three teams tied on a countback of 35 points with Alan Vincent and Dave Sammons just taking the honours to come in second place just ahead of John Hanna and a slimmed down version of Brian Thompson leaving John Mant and Mick Swann taking fourth position.
The biggest cheer of the day, however, was reserved for our hard working steward Martin Chapple who worked very efficiently behind the clubhouse bar.
