The Honiton Tuesday group met to contest the Chivers Goblets - a greensomes four-ball better ball stableford, writes Ann Desmoulins.

However, with the very bitter conditions, many decided to forego the competition and play just a few holes to show willing.

With the course frozen solid and 18 temporary greens, playing involved a very different strategy from normal in order to score any points at all.

So that the Goblets could be presented, it was decided to award them to the only pair to complete 18 holes - your correspondent and her partner Barry Rogers with a very respectable 43 points, despite some very odd bounces and strange putts.

Rather a fraudulent award, but worth it for the winners!
