The final of the Singles Knock-out Match, the Duncan Trophy has taken place between Linda North and Jane Watts, with Linda the winner.

The September Stableford and MacMillan Spoon competition was at the beginning of September. Winning the MacMillan Spoon and the Silver Division was lady captain Sue Selway, whose 38pts reduced her handicap yet again. Second, with 35pts, was Sue Ritchie.

Bronze Division 1 winner was Jane Cross with 37pts and second was Val Daniels, 35pts.

Bronze Division 2 winner was Jean Moon with 33pts with Avril Shepherd second with 30pts.

On Wednesday, the section played a Yellow Ball Competition playing in threes, two best scores to count, doubling points when in possession of the yellow ball. How that ball seems to affect swing, judgement to green and putting is amazing! The winning team, with 103pts, were Joan Smith, Brenda Hyde and Betty Weedon. Second with 100pts were Andrea Squire, Jan Dickinson and Susan Hyde.

l Saturday's Men's Club match was a needle match against Bigbury. With 20 players per side, the stakes were high, but I can report the Honiton secretary was very pleased to announce an 8-2 victory over his previous club, thus avenging last year's defeat. Sunday saw a Stableford competition with early finishers changing quickly and going on another famous 'Max's Mystery Charabanc Trip'.

The standard of golf was as good as ever with Jason Gosling's back 9 beating Mike Williams in Div 1 but, taking the spoils with a fabulous 40 points, was Richard Townsend from Div 2. He now relishes the challenge of playing from his new handicap of 18.
