The annual Mixed Invitational competition allows members to invite guests from far and wide to test themselves on Honiton’s tricky greens and also combat the fog wind and rain, writes John Pawley.

Past club captain Ron Graham and his partner Penny Weston, from Looe Golf Club came out on top to win the Salver after scoring 41 points.

The pair also served up the competition’s loan two and that won them 32 balls.

Attempting to win this particular competition for the third time were the pairing of Alan Seager and Glenda Board from Axe Cliff, but they had to settle for second place with their score of 37. Edged into fourth on countback, having also scored 37, were Bill Eaton and Di Parsons from Crediton and fourth place went to Peter Clarke and Angela Coles from Sidmouth with 35 points.

All the prizes were presented by Honiton lady captain Jane Watts.
