Past Captain Julian Phillips won the Hellier and Steele Perkins 36 hole bogey competition, which involves being par or better against the course.  
His winning total was +7, narrowly falling short in second with +6 was Jim Wallis and third on +4 was Steve Charlton.  
Julian started the second round a shot behind Jim, but with a birdie on the 2nd the nerves were settled until the 11th where his approach shot went some 40 yards over the green but he then finished with three pars to hang on for victory. 
It was another glorious day for the Tuesday Mixed with eight teams of four playing a Honiton Waltz format.   
The winning score by Sue and Paul Ritchie with Maureen and Harry Lawrence was an impressive 92 points, well clear of second-placed Sharon and David Rouse with Sheila Palmer and Peter Clarke, who scored 87 points. Third place went to Olwen and Bill Eaton with Maggie and John Harvey. 
Winning the seniors monthly Stableford was Clive Backham with an excellent score of 40pts, closely followed by David Rouse with 39 and third was Laurence Goodliffe with 38. 
John Wigginton led the way in the monthly medal with a 2 under 67 with John Birch in 2nd with 70 and 3rd Alan Pollock a 71. 
Kathy de Lacy won the silver division in the medal and Jenny Raison led the bronze division. Following the medal success, Kathy won the Monthly Stableford with a great score of 40 points, pipping Janet Hughes on 39. Winning Division Two of the Stableford was Liz Rogers with 37 points beating Susan Hyde on countback. 
Catherine Pawley played at Lyme Regis GC in the South West regional finals of the England Golf Medal, Catherine played well but just fell short of qualification for the national finals. 
Honiton had a fantastic win in the Dartmoor League Cup quarter final against Crediton winning 4-1.   
Leading the way were Spencer Macklin and David Carnall with a 7/5 win, just to say I have never seen a 12 handicapper play nine holes like Spencer did, he was a joy to watch, followed by ex-Crediton member Andy Phillips with namesake Julian winning 6/5.  
Paul Bowkorski and Matt Young won 5/3, which left Ed Reece and Peter Wainright who were 3 up after 14 but after finding out the team result, called it a day.   
Finishing with an honourable half were Captain Julian Netherway and Richard Beard. Honiton will now face Fingle Glen in the semi-final.
