Sixty-five Honiton seniors’ contested the combined Stableford/Eclectic competition, played last Friday, writes John Pawley.
Many of those playing were warming up for the Captains away-day which takes place next Monday.
Conditions, though cold, were reasonable and that was reflected in a higher percentage of very respectable scores than had been possible in recent months. Musical maestro Malcolm Matthews orchestrated an impressive win in Division One with 39 points, no doubt heading for a handicap cut.
New member Steve Butcher, who is one of the few seniors with a single-figure handicap, was runner-up with 36 points.
Paul Ritchie and Mike Watts also scored 36, but lost out on countback. In Division Two it was Phil Wall who prevailed with 36 points, followed home by club vice captain Mike Sennitt with 35.
