HONITON GOLF: Sunday saw the annual Captain versus Vice Captain fixture played at Middlehills. Sixty four guys made the most of the extra hour in bed but were disappointed to witness a steady misty drizzle coating the roads on the way to the club. Mizzle turned to permanent persistent precipitation by the 08.30 shotgun start and it is testament to hardy golfers that most of them stuck it out to the end. Before the off the Captain gave his team instructions not to win this week on the grounds that "nobody likes a winner", unfortunately they weren't listening and romped home by a huge margin of 10 and a half to 5 and a half, and guess what, everybody still likes the winner.The Tuesday mixed last week played an American foursomes in the first of the wintry conditions. The results were as follows: 1, Sue and Paul Ritchie 36pts; 2, Maureen McIlvean and Richard Pyle 34pts; 3, Avril Shepherd and Bill Eaton 33pts on back 9; 4, Olive Pope and Stan Squire 33pts.Ladies' section - The President's team played the Vice Captain's team in a 4BBB match in very trying conditions at the start - very heavy, cold showers which fortunately abated after an hour or so. The result could not have been closer with the decision resting on the last putt in the last match which was won by the President's team with the final result being 6-5.Club captain Terry Dimond is pictured receiving the Trophy from his vice captain Nick Richards.
