Honiton ladies’ captain Liz Rogers organised a summer luncheon for the senior section following an 18-hole Texas Scramble, writes Ann Desmoulins.

This was played in glorious sunshine, but with a chilly wind to start. However, that wind soon died down, at which point things warmed up!

Using a shot-gun start to ensure everyone finished at the same time all seemed to enjoy themselves. A tasty buffet was followed by the presentation of prizes for the day’s proceedings and the re-emergence of the infamous Pig to receive donations, levied as fines for various misdemeanours (instigated by last year’s lady captain, Janet Hughes). Much laughter ensued.

The winners were the team of Elizabeth Ward, Ann Desmoulins and Susan Hyde with a nett 68.4.

Second place went to Henrietta Bradshaw, Lesley Farley and new member Maureen Lawrence with nett 70.2 and third were the trio of Sue Kelson, Cathy Uttley and Susan Armstrong with nett 70.9.

The scores were calculated by deducting 10 per cent of the combined handicaps of each team from their gross total.
