Peter Blake, ex-Mayor of Honiton, won the August Seniors Medal at Honiton Golf Club with a Nett 67, followed in by John Pawley with 71. In Division Two, winning with a 67 was Jon Kane, two ahead of runner up Dave Maggs.
The Seniors team continued their good form with a 4-3 team win over East Devon. Also in a busy week, The Henry Young Open was won by Alan Devenney, Derek Keen, and Nigel Broadbent with a score of 43pts.
On the last Tuesday of August, there was a slight feel of autumn in the air, plus a few sprinkles of rain for the later starters but fortunately only briefly. There was a good turnout for the monthly drawn greensomes, with 16 pairs taking part.
Taking first prize and winning the Centenary Goblets were Ann Trayling and Ken Wood, who recorded a magnificent score of 47 points and were well ahead of the chasing group.
In second place, with 39 points, were Maureen Lawrence and John Ward. Third place went to Liz Wood and Mike Delaney with 38 points and in fourth place, with 37 points, decided on countback, were Cathy Pawley and Harry Lawrence.
Gerry Hartley Trophy
Div 1: Paul Coates 37 beating Dave Carnall on countback and Paul Dimond with 36.
Div 2: 1st Paul Rutland with 39, 2nd Mike Weeks and 3rd Tim Morris.
As we approach the autumn/winter and finally emerging from Covid, we must have a special mention for all those ‘behind the scenes’ people at the golf club, from the green keepers, the bar and restaurant staff, the starters for all the Open Competitions to the the kind volunteers who serve at the halfway house, a big Thank You to you all from all members and visitors.
