The seniors’ ‘Team Stableford Waltz Time’ roll-up was won by Ian Scott, Andrzrj Sobczak and Danny O’Mahony with 77, followed by Adrain Hurrell, Malcolm Pledger and Tim Rufus on 70, writes Carole Pye.

Last week’s seniors’ roll-up ‘Team Stableford Nip and Tuck’, had an excellent turnout.

The winners were Ray Dwan, Clive Hurley and David Morris with a very good score of 82, Dave Freeman, Ian Fry and Norman Baker (74) were the runners-up.

In glorious sunshine the seniors played the home leg of their friendly against Dartmouth, winning by the same margin as last year four-and-a-half to one-and-a-half.

The popular midweek stableford competition continues to grow. The winner, with an impressive 41 points, was David Cockayne Jnr whilst 35 points gave Jamie Davidson the runner-up position.

The men’s Acorn team played their first friendly match of the season against Exminster at home. In challenging weather conditions the match was closely contested, but Woodbury came away with a four-and-a-half, one-and-a-half win.

The players all agreed it was a very enjoyable day played on an excellent course.

Playing at home against Teignmouth the ladies’ Sheelah Creasey team continued their unbeaten run with a four-and-a-half to two-and-a-half victory.

The weekend competition was ‘The Atkinson Memorial Plate’, one of Woodbury’s majors. From an excellent turnout of over 100 men David Cockayne Jnr emerged the winner of the first division with 38 points, just nudging his father, David Cockayne, into second place. The second division was won by Robin Dummelow scoring an excellent 41 points, which also made him the overall winner of the plate. Steve Jarman (38) was the runner-up.

Mick Richardson took the third division with 37 points ahead of Stephen Yates on 35.

The ladies had a much smaller entry, but Sue Persey hit form to score 40 points to claim the silver division, and also win the Atkinson Memorial Plate. Angela Mullerworth (35) was the division runner-up. The bronze division was taken by Louise Neilson (33) with Paula Cowl second on 30.

It is always a challenge to win on an away course, especially St Mellion, but that is what the Woodbury men’s friendly team did last weekend, they won three-and-a-half to St. Mellion’s two-and-a-half.
