The first round began with an away match at Woodbury Park Golf & Country Club and the East Devon team posted a 4-1 win. Axe Cliff Golf Club visited East Devon for the second round and the home advantage saw another 4-1 win. Round 3 was again at home and proved too much for Saunton Golf Club women as the East Devon team posted a 5-0 win. Luck of the draw stayed with East Devon as round 4 also gifted a home match bringing China Fleet over the Devon border, but their travels were in vain as they lost 4½-½. Round 5 saw the team from St Mellion Golf & Country Club travel to East Devon but now, well into their stride, the East Devon women won 5-0. 

Having polished off the Devon and Cornwall opposition, round 6 saw the East Devon team welcome Romsey Golf Club to Devon, sealing another 5-0 win. The 7th round, the last in the UK, was an away draw at Weybrook Park Golf Club, Basingstoke. The stakes were high and so were the nerves as, with 2 games each, it was down to the final game which finally finished on the 17th green in East Devon’s favour. The ladies, caddies & supporters erupted!

Spain here we come. Olé, Olé, Olé!
