For his Captain’s Away Day meeting, seniors captain Bob Graham led 22 of his men, plus four guests, to a remote corner of Devon for a day out and an opportunity to pit their skills against a tight tree-lined course, a daunting feature for Axe Cliff golfers, writes Pete Motson.
Considering the Stableford points recorded, it is fair to say that the course proved to be too good a test but, an enjoyable one.
Chris Walker, a 13 handicapper, scored 35 points and won the Away Day Trophy which was presented by captain at a post match ceremony. Walker also won the first prize of a Sunday lunch at Deer Park Hotel.
He scored a two with his last put of the competition, the second two of his round. Two other twos were recorded, one by Rob Grove and one by Pete Motson. Four players scored 33 points with Gilbert Cox squeezing into second place followed by Peter Hornsby, third, John Mant, fourth and Neil Moorcraft, fifth.
There were prizes for nearest the pin on two holes which, were won by Pail Curtin and Peter Hornsby. An excellent meal was concluded with the presentation of prizes, during which advice and criticism was freely given and accepted, all in good spirits!
