Honiton senior captain Alan Pollock took a team to play at a competition at Enmore Park GC for the Quantock Stag Trophy, writes John Pawley.
The match should have taken place earlier in the year, but bad weather saw it postponed. In total, 14 clubs from the area were invited to send teams to play in the four-ball better-ball event one score to count from each of the four two-man teams. Honiton finished third which represents their best ever finish in the competition with a score of 162 points, bettered only by the Mendip Spring GC team and Long Ashton GC.
A further 56 Seniors took part in a Texas Scramble at Honiton on Friday in glorious Autumn sunshine.
Whilst the overall standard of play did not match the excellence of the weather there were nonetheless some creditable scores.
Mike Sennitt, David Lee and Alan Devenny came first with a net 64.0, closely followed by David Scott, John Pawley and Robert Canterbury on 64.4.
