The ladies held their 36-hole, two-day Jubilee cup at Honiton Golf Club, with Susan Kelson winning on 67 points, narrowly beating Anusara Trayling who scored 66, third place went to Sheila Palmer with 65 
The ladies stableford event was won by Janet Hughes with 39, second with 37 was Catherine Williams and third was Julie Smalley with 33. 
One of the highlights of the Tuesday Mixed year is the Banks Trophy competition, played in memory of Sheila Banks who, together with her husband Geoff, organised the Tuesday Mixed for many years.    
Geoff, now aged 98, and Sheila are remembered with great affection for the happy atmosphere they brought to our weekly competitions. Having had to cancel last year's competition due to Covid, it was great to play for the Trophy again and on a beautiful sunny day too.   
Partners were drawn and the format was a Treble 6, with the first six holes played as a better-ball, the second six as a greensomes and the last six as a foursomes.   
The draw for partners was done by an independent third party and by chance the current Tuesday Mixed organisers, Sue and Paul Ritchie, were drawn together.   
They went on to win the Trophy with a score of 42 points, just beating Carole Booth and Max Pipe on countback with a better back nine. Third place, with 40 points, went to Maureen Lawrence and Andy Dawe, followed in fourth place by Georgie Hope-Edwards and Eric Short with 39 points.   
The Trophy was presented to Sue and Paul by Club President Max Pipe. 
In the first round of the McClymont Cup, played in a medal format, with a field of 55 and leading at halfway is Tim Metheringham with 65, second is Ian Williams with 68 and James Spiller third also with 68, but with 15 players within eight shots of the leader, it’s all to play for. 
The Seniors held a pairs better-ball competition, with the winners Derek Keen and Alan Devenny scoring 43pts, in second place Bob Underwood and John Robinson with 42 and losing on countback and finishing third were John Pawley and Mike Kent.
