Honiton ladies played a combined foursomes and Killard Leavy competition - with the winning pair being nominated to represent the club in the Killard Leavy trophy later in the year at Saunton, writes John Pawley.

The winning pairing comprised of lady vice captain Liz Rogers and Jan Portlock with their score being 34 points.

Second were Sue Ritchie and lady captain Janet Hughes with 32. Third and fourth place had to be determined by countback with Lizz Wood and Gill Johnson edging Tricia Swindell and Jackie Seager into fourth after both pairings recorded a score of 31 points.

In other ladies news, last week’s competition was the annual challenge between the lady captain’s team – dressed in pink – and the lady vice captain’s team – dressed in blue.

The four-ball better ball format made it a lengthy affair, but the good weather and much good natured banter, ensured a really good day was had by all.
