The weather relented in mid-week allowing the Seniors to play their scheduled inter-club match at Bridport. Following close recent matches, the home side fielded a strong team resulting in a runaway 5½ to ½ victory. Axe Cliff's half point was won by captain, Rob Grove, assisted by Iain Bain, writes Janet Dack.

On Friday, prizes for Medals and Stablefords won over the past three months were presented by the captain following the conclusion of a 15 hole Stableford for the Quarterly Cup.

In a close finish it was won by Bob Graham (23) with 32 points, one ahead of Geoff Hughes (15) who had two 2s to help him to his 31 points. Third place went to Sid Pember (18) with 29 points which also included a two. There were six 2s in total, the other three coming from John Pugh, Dave Bruce and Peter Motson.

●The men were able to compete for the May Medal this Sunday in fairly seasonable weather. The winner of Division One was Craig Trivett (11) with a nett 69, with Brett Garner (11) in second place with a nett 72.

Third place went to Nigel Prichard also handicap 11 with a nett 74.

In Division Two the winner was Stuart Dickson (25) with a nett 68, second David Morgan (17) with a nett 71 beating Anthony Hellier (14) on the back nine.

●Once again the weather defeated the ladies’ section who were playing for the chance to represent their club in the Express and Echo Competition later in the year, when the fog descended and play was suspended !!
