The Woodbury Park seniors played a ‘Team Stableford Yellow Peril’, which attracted quite a large field, writes Carole Pye.

There was some very close scoring in the first three groups Terry Tilbury, John Kelly and Mike Haddon were the winners with 118, closely followed by Don Johns, Bill Mason and Martin Creed on 117, whilst Austin Barrett, Ian Marvin and Tim Rufus came third scoring 116.

The number of players taking part in the mid-week competition has increased considerably. Out of the 46 that took part Jamie Davidson, with an excellent score of 43 points, emerged the victor. After count-back John Dick, with 41 points, was declared the runner-up just edging out David Cockayne Jnr.

The progress of the ladies’ Sheelah Creasy team is very encouraging. Playing away at Teignmouth, they had a very convincing four-and-a-half to two-and-a-half.

The Acorn Ladies played their first friendly of the season against Honiton at Woodbury. In dry conditions but with a bitterly cold wind, which changed directions constantly, the Woodbury ladies had an encouraging 3-1 win.

The weekend competition for both men and ladies was the ‘Order of Merit Individual Medal’ it had an excellent turnout with over 100 players taking part. David Cockayne Jnr, for the second year running, won the first division with net 67 ahead of Robert Lake (71).

Three players vied for the top position in the second division. With the lowest gross score, Don Burwood (70) just edged out Simon Challis and Erik Nielsen. Alex Freer’s 69 gave him the third division leaving Mark Wightman as the runner-up on 70.

The ladies’ competition was won by Louise Nielson (72) ahead of Paula O’Neill on 80 points.
