Axe Cliff GC Ladies really like the sun and some warmth whilst playing but last week was a little too much for most.  
Last Wednesday was Anne Jarvis' Lady Captain’s day and she did the girls proud. They were presented with a goodie bag at the first tee and learnt that they would be playing an individual Stableford but also in teams of three. 
On each green, there were three coloured emblems: Rose, Thistle and Daffodil, so they also had a team score, using the scores of the person/s whose colour it was.    
Anne very kindly made it a 15-hole competition given the heat. Once everyone was in, the Ladies were treated to a delicious lunch prepared by Claire and her team. 
The team award went to Caroline Bond, Jill Wellington and Pauline Willis with 54 pts. Lady Captain’s Cup was won by Caroline Bond with 35 pts. 
On Thursday, Stella Thompson and Jo Donmall were playing in the Vets Inter Club 4BBB competition at Tiverton against Sidmouth and had a convincing win, they are now through to the semi-finals. 
I am pleased to see that my Eggman, young Paul Curtin is now through to this year's semi final of the Seniors' Scratch Cup by beating Nigel Tar,r but Nigel was probably tired for having to cook breakfast again for guests now he has re-opened his B & B, Holmleigh.  
Paul next has to face the winners of the quarter-final between last year's champion Stuart Mackie and in-form Gerry Binmore. 
In the other quarter-finals, John Purdy may have a walk over against Gerry Turner but will have to face one of two powerful contenders namely, Steve Thompson and Tony Strong who has won this trophy many times in the past. 
This Friday, last year's Captain, Rob Grove will be presenting the 2020 trophy winners with their silver and glassware after the competition.
