August bank holiday Monday is the annual fixture for the Walker Cup at Honiton, writes Andy Wagner.

A full field enjoyed the sunshine - unusual for a bank holiday! The club captain Dave Morgan and club vice-captain Ron Graham checked the cards and then presented the prizes. The winners this year of the Walker Cup were Catherine and Charlie Doherty with an excellent score of 48 points.

The minor places were decided by count back after all involved finished with 45 points.

Second place went Olive Pope and Simon Martin, third spot to Elizabeth Ward and club vice-captain Ron Graham and fourth place went to Ann Trayling and Paul Dimond.

Three two’s were recorded; Olwen and seniors vice-captain Bill Eaton and Jane and Mike Watts both on the second hole and Catherine and Charlie Doherty on the 12th hole.
