The Lady Captain's Prize competition at Honiton Golf Club attracted a strong field of 36 players this week.  
The format was stableford and two divisions took part. In Division One, it was a fascinating tussle, as the top two places were decided on countback. Kathy De Lacy took first place after recording a score of 35, with Liz Wood in second place with 35 and in third place was Jackie Seager with 34 points.  
Division Two produced equally worthy winners with Sheila Palmer taking first place with a score of 36 points and winning overall. Second place was also decided on countback with Penny Blackburn scoring 33 points and in third place was Jo Donall with 33  
In the Tuesday Mixed competition, the teams enjoyed a warm sunny day at last and the conditions were perfect for some excellent golf.  
The format was an American Greensomes where both players tee off, swap balls to play a second shot, then choose the preferred ball and play alternate shots thereafter.  
There were 11 couples taking part and the clear winners were Sue Kelson and Paul Ritchie with a splendid score of 44 points. Second place, with 40 points, went to Maggie Harvey and John Craig, closely followed by Mona Carter and Mike Delaney in third place with 39 points. 
Honiton’s Dartmoor league side endured another tough day at Okehampton, losing 4-1 with the two pairs halving matches being Andy Phillips/ Matt Young and Captain Julian Netherway and Richard Beard. The team now have a week off before the league semi-final away to Fingle Glen. 
The Honiton seniors held their Monthly Yellow tees stableford competition and in yet another very close contest with 30 players taking part, Clive Backham came through the field to win on countback with 38 pts. In second place was Peter Blake and back in third John Jackson with 36 pts.
