Not many competitions have been played this year, most falling victim to Covid19 restrictions. However, on 2nd September Tavistock Golf Club hosted 46 Senior Men for the DevonGolf Senior Men's Championship and 33 women for the Senior Women's Championships.
In the Senior Men's competition, 18 Devon clubs were represented with many of the DevonGolf Seniors' team members vying for the title. It was a tough, hard fought championship with Peter Bicknell (1) from Torquay Golf Club having to go the extra mile against fellow team member Paul Newcombe (1) from East Devon Golf Club. And it was an extra mile - it took 4 playoff holes, all going to par before a Peter's birdie 4 on the 5th playoff hole secured the trophy. Congratulations Peter.
In the nett competition, Peter Bicknell and Paul Newcombe shone with Colin Masters (4) of Churston Golf Club all finishing on nett 70.
