Joy Wisdom continued her successful golfing year by winning the ladies October stableford at East Devon Golf Club, writes Helen Chivers.
The course had clearly benefitted from the heavy rain of the previous weekend and Wisdom took advantage of the conditions to win by the narrowest of margins, on countback from fellow Silver Division player Jenny Dobel.
They both scored impressive five under par rounds of 41 points, one shot ahead of Lauren Chapman who took third place in Silver Division with a four under par round of 40 points.
Annie Dent had another good week on the cliff top links, coming fourth with a one under par round of 37 points and Sue Harrison was fifth on 35 points.
Patricia Trevarthen took top spot in Bronze Division with a two under par round of 38 points, three shots clear of second placed Julieta Steiner on 35 points.
Jill Williams then lead in a group of six ladies who all scored 34 points, her better back nine seeing her take third place ahead of Jane Harvey, ladies captain Maria Heard, Alison Kent, Shirley Pressey and Jean Quinn.
