The club held the second Captains' Drive- in, the first one having been cancelled due to the usual bad weather, and it was played in rain and sunshine. This year the incoming captains are Alan Cooper (main club), Pauline Standerwick (ladies), Brian Blackwood (seniors) and Jamie Hughes (juniors). All members and staff wish all the captains the very best for the coming year. The winners of the shotgun start competition were G Walker, D Dack R Edghill and B Board with net 59.9. Second with net 62.2 were S Love, M Jamison, P Sweetland and G Turner. On Sunday the main club were in action for the replayed March Medal. First place in division 1 with a net 64 was Dave Wills (7), second went to Gavin Walker (11) with a nett 70, and in third place was Paul Clode (7) with a net 71. In Division two the winner was Wayne Vincent (14) with a net 69, second was Andy Gabb (24) with a net 70 and in third was Andy Handford (23) with a net 71.l The ladies played their second friendly match at Chedington Golf Club but unfortunately lost. They played an extra Medal on Wednesday to qualify for the Warren Crocus match. There were no silver division players. The winner of the high division was Dawn Stewart (29) with net 78 and the winner of the low division was Janet Dack (24) with net 85.l Following their opening home defeat at the hands of Long Sutton, the Seniors travelled to Windwhistle for the first away Inter-Club encounter of the current season. Better things were in store as honours ended in a 3-3 draw with all matches keenly contested. Winning pairings for Axe Cliff were Brain Blackwood/Gilbert Cox; Geoff Hubbard/Clive Davie; Malcolm Glass/Iain Bain. At Axe Cliff, two days later, the April Stableford was played in very blustery condition which resulted in only one player - the winner Hugh Willis (21) - beating par with an excellent 37 points. Two players returned scores of 34 points, with second place going to Iain Bain (13) and Nick Stanton having to settle for third.
