THERE were 56 players who took part in the Seniors' Open Day at the East Devon Golf Club and amongst the participants were 48 members of the hosting club.Despite overcast skies the rain stayed away and in warm conditions there was some excellent golf played. An 'Open Day' is a new venture for the Seniors' section in the club. Seniors' Captain Ken Watson said: "Last year's event was by invitation only to twenty clubs in Devon but this year it was completely open to any individual senior golfer in the English Golf Union. Applications to attend could be downloaded from the English Golf Union website, which was a new approach for us. We were extremely pleased that it was successful. The event was fully subscribed and enjoyed by all."A raffle held during the day raised £222 for the Club Captain's charity. The winners of the Individual Stableford competition were:DIVISION 1 (Hcp 1-16): F Hughes (East Devon) was first with 38pts, K Sutton (Torquay) came second with 37pts after countback, J Knapman (Churston) was third with 37pts after countback and M Ellison (Torquay) was fourth with 37pts after countback.DIVISION 2 (Hcp 17-28): M Wall (East Devon) first with 41pts, W Ficken (East Devon) second with 39pts, J Lee (East Devon) third with 38pts and B Doddington (Teignmouth) came fourth with 36pts.The competition 'Nearest the Pin' with second shot on the 18th was won by C Horwell (Exeter).The Junior Section was also playing for silverware recently and 15 year old David Blick claimed the Betty Baynham Trophy after taking just 150 shots to complete the 36 holes, whilst the handicap prize was picked up by 14 year old Chris Snow who won the Bill Norris Trophy with a net score of 143.WOODBURY Colts brought the curtain down on another season of practise evenings on Monday night with the regular coaching as well as some presentations and a barbecue to finish off the proceedings. The Colts section have been running the regular Monday sessions for a number of years and they are proving to be very popular with the local youngsters.
