Norman Barker was a past member and put his name to a trophy to be competed for by members of Honiton seniors who were also members of the Devon Men’s Veterans Golf Association (DMVGA), writes Ann Desmoulins.

It is a knockout competition for pairs, which is run through the summer season. Many fine names are on the trophy and this year the names of Phil Deacon and Peter Morgan will be added. Seventy-one people played and the long drives of the hot summer now seem a thing of the past!

The winners, with a score of 63.0, were Nigel Broadbent, Mike Delaney and Howard Pritchard.

Second place went to Dave Maggs, Tony Proudfoot and Tom Stanton with a nett 63.7, third were Alan Pollock, Peter Blake and Rod Armitage with a nett 65.9 and in fourth place, with a nett 66.9, were Bill Phillips, Phil Faulkner and Brian Bird.

Vic Wood must have thought Christmas had come early as he had the only two and won 45 balls, achieving it on the 12th.
