WESTERN MORNING NEWS TROPHY - PORTMORE GOLF CLUB - 2nd AUGUST 2018
|Holsworthy ladies with DevonGolf President Carolyn Maynard|
This year was the turn of Portmore Golf Club to host this annual Foursomes event for The Western Morning News Cup which was given to the county for presentation in 1936. The weather did not let us down and remained hot with some cloud cover. A big thank you must go to Portmore Golf Club for all their help. The bar and catering staff were there to help and nothing was too much trouble. The course, known for its challenging and interesting holes, didn’t disappoint.
Our joint County President Carolyn Maynard was officiating for the day and her first duty was as starter for the 86 ladies. 11 clubs from the North and East of the county took part.
In the true concept of unification, we had a chap from Portmore Golf Club who had volunteered to be a marker for one of the pairs.
Carolyn presented the prizes and cups with most competitors remaining to cheer the winners. This was done in a very cordial atmosphere with lots of laughter and banter.
There was only one pairing that got a 2, much to the delight of Penny Deakin and Susan Stanbury from Okehampton Golf Club, receiving 54 balls for their efforts.
Karen Thomas and Jo Lethaby from Portmore Golf Club were the winning Foursomes pair with 36 points. The Western Morning News Cup was won by Holsworthy Golf Club with their team made up from pairings
of Carole Mason and Carol Skryczak, Lynda Perkins and Liz Underwood and Ely Walmsley and Denise Baggot, with the best aggregate of two of the three nominated pairs totalling 68 points.
