Senior success for Axe Cliff Golfers

What a week for the Seniors' Vice Captain David Lacey, skippering Axe Cliff GC to home wins against Libbatton on Monday, which we won 5.5 to 0.5 and Cricket St Thomas 3.5 to 2.5.
He then, somehow, had enough energy to organise a fun competition on Friday. What a pity he wasn't able to lead our Ryder Cup team. His theme was both fun and interesting being a team led by famous golfers but don’t ask me the rules!
However, I can tell you that Team NICK won with 791 points; Team PHIL was second with 770 pts leaving poor old team RORY in third with 756 pts. Amazingly, we had the three best individual scores from one player from each of the leaders.
Pete Casey for PHIL's with 81 pts, then Richard Bush for RORY with 76 pts, leaving young Alan Morgan doing the honours for NICK with 74. It was a busy week for head chef Clare with Alec and team but, as always, they came up trumps, leaving everyone well fed and happy.
There was a good turnout for the Men's section on Sunday in their Monthly Medal with challenging weather making scoring difficult but not for evergreen Stuart Mackie, now playing off 10, with a net 73, beating top postie Paul Clode on countback, leaving Nigel Pritchard in 3rd spot on net 78. Paul Hankin won Div 2 with net 71 on countback again from Brian Waller, leaving another evergreen Geoff Greeenslade in third place with 78.

Axe Cliff Ladies fought for the popular Helen Gaudie Bowl last Wednesday in teams of two, with best stableford score to count and the clear winning pair was Sandra Walker & Karin Cox with 39 points. Although small in numbers, they have had some formidable success in recent weeks that I would like to leave you with an excellent picture of just a few of them taken by our Margaret Kenchington at a recent fun away day including Karin.
