Despite some appalling overnight weather and some very heavy and unpleasant showers during the early part of play, the DevonGolf Senior’s event at The Warren Golf Club was played and completed. It was a tough day, particularly for the earlier starters as in addition to the showers there was a heavy wind blowing from the south-west.

We give a huge vote of thanks to the Warren for hosting the competition after the torrential overnight rain and wind. The 7th had to be played as a par 3, and the volume of sand dumped on the 6th fairway meant a teeing-up option was place so, sadly, the event could not count for handicap purposes. Oh, the joys of winter golf!

In the handicap section Ron Entwistle from the home club produced an emphatic 43 points to win, ahead of squad member Simon Knapman (Churston) and Warren’s Adrian Mountford on 36. David Heaton (Warren) and Richard Pascoe (Stover) both scored 34.

DevonGolf's newly minted Seniors' Squad member Jeremy Binch kicked off his career with a win in the scratch competition. The +2 Warren member scored 35 to pip club mate and Seniors' Team Manager Tim Aggett by 1 point. Knapman had 33, ahead of RND’s Mark Evans on 30. Mark Taylor from Tavistock, Nick Draper from Teignmouth and Heaton were all on 29 points.

The next event is at East Devon Golf Club on Thursday, 7th April.
