The men played their August Medal on Sunday in improved weather. Winner of Division 1 was A Morgan (9) with a nett 66, beating D Taylor (12) with a nett 67 and third placed D Wills (6) with a nett 71.

The mixed open followed the men's competition in lovely weather but the blustery conditions were reflected in the scores.

The winner of the main prize was Mrs K Colwill/Mr G Walker from Hockley/Axe Cliff golf clubs with 36 points. Second went to Mr and Mrs Chapman, Stover Golf Club with 35 points, and third prize went to Mr and Mrs Sweetland, Axe Cliff, with 34 points.

Best Visitors prize was won by Mrs J Warne-Booth and Mr Spencer-Farr, Windwhistle, on the countback ruling.

The best back nine was won by Mrs Janet Dack and Mr Paul Curtin of Axe Cliff Golf Club with Mr and Mrs Bargy of Great Torrington GC. Nearest the pin for the men was Mr M Bowen, Great Torrington, and, for the ladies, nearest the pin winner was Mrs H Williamson. The only twos of the afternoon were Mr and Mrs Board.

l The ladies played their friendly against Windwhistle on Monday. The day started fair but, as it progressed, the weather deteriorated and after 12 holes, the ladies repaired to the club house.

Unfortunately Axe Cliff lost 21/2 to 11/2, the good meal made up for the weather.

The ladies played their August Stableford and Rabbit Trophy competition on Wednesday in sunshine. The winner of the Rabbit Trophy was Pauline Standerwick (33) with 28 points.

Winner of Division One was Glenda Board (18) with 31 and Division Two was won by Margaret Brown (26) with 34 points.

l The recent poor weather caused the postponement of the scheduled inter-club match at Libbaton last week.

It has now been re-arranged for Wednesday, September 16. Due to insufficient available Fridays this month, the August Medal was held on the last day in July, 34 competitors participated and, while most struggled with the prevailing conditions, two players broke par with 69 netts. The winner on countback was Don Lee (26) with Chris Jowett (18) having to settle for second place. Five players returned cards of 74 nett and third place on countback went to the captain, Chris Walker (14). The other 74s were recorded by Hugh Willis, Derek Williamson, Peter Knighting and John D White.
