Junior Captain Marcus Watson-Jones hosted his Captain’s competition at Honiton Golf Club with teams of four (two adults and two juniors) competing in a Texas Scramble over nine holes.  

Congratulations to the winning team of Sue Ritchie, Lucy Ritchie, Henry Bright and Ian Bright, with an impressive score of 11 under par. 

The 10th hole saw a ’nearest the bin’ competition involving all participants attempting to chip their ball into a dustbin!  Junior members showcased their short game skills by bagging three out of the four prizes.   

A successful raffle and refreshments stall at the ‘half way hut’ on the 7th green, along with proceeds from the abandoned Captain’s Day in July raised just short of £300 for the Honiton Junior squad, which helps to pay for coaching and equipment.   

There was a good turnout for this week's Tuesday Mixed competition, with 14 couples playing an American Foursomes. In this format, both players tee off, then each play their partner's ball, after which they select one ball and continue alternate shots for the remainder of the hole.   

The winners, Caroline and Steve Bond, were well ahead of the chasing pack, scoring an impressive 47 stableford points. Second place, with 42 points, went to Olwen Eaton and Andy Dawe.  Linda Curtis and Ken Wood took third place, just prevailing on countback with 41 points. 

Honiton Golf Club's Ladies Section were proud to support this week's Breast Cancer Brooch competition, raising over £135 for Breast Cancer Now.  
Georgena Hope-Edwards won division 1 with 35 points beating Katharine de Lacy by 3 points, closely followed in third place by Anusara Trayling with 30 points.
