The past week saw the staging of Lady Captain’s Day at Honiton, writes Liz Rogers.

Lady Captain, Olwen Eaton, made sure it was a very Irish affair!

All the players had to wear something green for the day, but one player, namely Trish Swindell, took it very seriously and turned into an Irish Leprechaun.

She received a special prize for her ingenuity!

As for the golf, the winner of the Lady Captain’s prize with 37 points was Ann Trayling.

In Silver Division, Jane Watts continued her excellent form with 36 points to gain first prize.
