The Woodbury Park seniors’ roll-up started in beautiful April sunshine, but the weather deteriorated rapidly leaving the players, once again, cold and very wet, writes Carole Pye.
However, 24 players finished the game which was a team stableford ‘Waltz Time’ (one score to count on the first hole, two on the second and all three on the third).
The winners with 74 points were Ray Dwan, John Kelly and Colin Burford, ahead of Clive Hurley, Alan Stone and Dave Freeman with 67 points.
The first Sheelah Creasy match of the season was played at Yelverton, a course that the majority of the ladies had not played before.
The team came away celebrating an excellent 5-2 win; a great incentive for the rest of the season.
The mid-week stableford competition is slowly gathering momentum. Steve Jarman with an excellent 40 was the winner, with Paul Curgenven second on 35.
Sara Beaven and Su Calver played away at Honiton in the Daily Mail Foursomes; after a hard fought game the opposition won on the 17th hole.
Sue Persey and Paula Cowl, won through to the second round of the Doris Willes Little foursomes trophy to be played at Okehampton later in the year.
The first of Woodbury’s major competitions, the ‘Skinner/Playford’, was played at the weekend. The men played Foursomes Medal and the ladies a Foursomes Stableford.
With a better back nine after count-back, Trevor Part and Paul Crafer (69) won the men’s competition ahead of Paul Crocock and Alex Freer.
In the ladies stableford competition Sue Payne and Jacky Jacobs took first place with 31 points, closely followed by Julie Browne and Trish Trevarthen (30).
The weekend saw an excellent 2.5 to .5 win in the ‘Parker Trophy’ men’s scratch competition against Crediton. Tom Jessamine and Simon Kirby secured a win (four and three) as did Paul Mullerworth and David Cockayne Jnr ( three and one ).
Lee Nattrass and James Askew went to the wire in their game which was halved.
