Twenty-eight Axe Cliff members competed for the Seniors Quarterly Cup, writes Peter Motson.

The competition was played over 15 holes and was won by Mick Tomes with 30 points.

It was close for the minor places with countback used to see Gilbert Cox second and Peter Hornsby third after both played scored 29 points.

Tony Strong recorded a hole in two as did, Rob Grove and also Gilbert Cox, who putted in from off the green at the seventh hole.

Mewanhile, the seniors recent loss in the league away match at Wheathill was reversed in the return match at home last week by the same margin – five matches to one – sweet revenge indeed!

The men’s October stablefored saw victory sealed on the back nine with Gavin Walker taking first place with 38 points and Steve Baker edged into second. The back nine also determined third spot with Matt Hall edging out Stuart Mackie after both players scored 36 points.

There were seven twos scored between five players, Nigel Garwood, Richard Orsman and Paul Curtin each managed one while Craig Trivett and Steve Baker recorded two each.

The ladies section pair that travelled to Yelverton made their trip very worthwhile. Bee Sammons and Helen Kenwotthy won the DLVGA Killard Levy County Cup with 37 points in a half combined handicap format. Yet another cup in the ladies section trophy collection!

The recent Axe Cliff Gruesome Cup took place despite unkind weather. The mixed greensomes half combined handicap format was won by Alan Kenworthy and Glenda Board. Second were Giles Thomas and Barbara Cummings while third place went to Rob Grove and Jill Wellington.
