The Woodbury Park seniors had over 30 players for their roll-up, playing a Team Stableford-Lucky Fours, writes Carole Pye.
Andrzej Sobczak, Geoff Aylet and Terry Davies won with 90 points, ahead of Alan Stone, Colin Burford and Mike Haddon on 88.
Having previously narrowly beaten Royal North Devon at home the seniors faced a stiff challenge in the return away match. Again closely contested, the outcome was a narrow victory for RND.
Through pressure from other events, the mid-week competition had been suspended for a few weeks, but was well supported for its return.
Philip Taverner won the Medal format with a net 67 ahead of Daryn Hunt (69). A home game against Exminster was the last friendly match of the season for the Acorn ladies.
Having previously lost at Exminster, the team hoped that the home advantage would assist a favourable outcome but the closely fought game ended in a draw.
The friendly matches for the Acorn men continue. Playing away against Sampford Peveral, the Woodbury players found the deep rough and streams too much of a challenge but thoroughly enjoyed the experience nevertheless.
The weekend competition, a Pink Day Qualifier Stableford had an excellent turnout.
Andrew Hirst took the first division in the men’s competition with 43 and John Anderson (40) was the runner-up. After count-back, 39 points gave David McGregor the second division, edging out Mike Bird.
Martyn Stevens led the third division on 43, ahead of Alex Freer (40). The ladies’ silver division was won, after count-back, by Petina Murray (30) with Lyn Playford the runner-up. Sue Kirk took the bronze division with 38 points, ahead of Diana Jacob on 36 points.
