Since my last report an air of sadness had descended upon us all at Woodbury Park, writes John Bridgman.

We have lost two people who in their own way shaped the manner in which we all endeavour to uphold the reputation of our club in Devon golf circles.

Last weekend saw us celebrating ‘Pink Day’ whereby cancer charity benefit from members contributions.

A medal round is played out covering three divisions of handicaps with prizes up to five places.

Division One was won by Jonathan Veale 74, (handicap of five, to make his score 69. Second was Paul Crafer 81 (11) 70 and third, after countback was Tony Palmer, also 81 (11) 70.

The Division Two honours were claimed by Paul Newcombe 88 (17) 71 with second place going to Neil Penfold 87 (15) 72 and third was Barry Parfitt 87 (14) 73.

Division Three was won by the overall winner of the medal, Martyn Moxey, with his score of 84, which, accounting for his handicap of 20, came out at a splendid 64.

Second place went to Kenneth Todd 99 (22) 77 and third went to Dominic Wilson 97 (19) 78.

In midweek a medal round was held and regular winner Peter Lawrence 67 (2) 69 saw off Roy Barber (handicap 15) 71 with third place decided by countback and taken Colin Wilson 74 (3) 71.

A team of Woodbury Park seniors played at Exeter Golf Club and lost 6-2.

The captain said they enjoyed good friendship and company. He was quick to point out that over the two matches Woodbury had in fact won one match more than Exeter. No sour grapes there then!

We now look forward to much more golf including the Club Championships taking place o0n the first weekend in August.

Until then, happy whacking.
