A three-man team from Honiton took the main prize at the Devon Men’s Veteran Golfers Association (DMVGA).

Second were a team from Okehampton who scored 100 points and third were a trio from Tiverton with a score of 999 points.

The ‘Harry Keen Salver’ for the best individual score was awarded to Honiton’s Tony Williams (13) for his score of 43 points, his days work including a pair of twos.
