Congratulations to the Ladies Golf Team!

The Ladies’ Golf Team celebrated victory over the men’s team in the annual Wooden Spoon competition at Exeter Golf and Country Club on Sunday 30th September.

Ladies’ Golf Captain, Lyne Beevers was determined that the ladies would avoid the unwanted presentation of the Wooden Spoon for the losing side – a determination that eventually paid off with a successful win.

Equally, Lyndon Bent, the Men’s Golf Captain put out a strong side to try and avoid the same outcome. Despite a tight competition throughout, Lyndon’s men’s team finally lost to the ladies by one point.

The ladies’ team secured bragging rights with a clear 5.5pts to 4.5pts win. Lyne took great pleasure in presenting the Wooden Spoon to Lyndon with an assurance that the blue ribbon will be displayed on the Wooden Spoon for the year ahead.

After play all players retired to the Topsham Room for Sunday lunch and to watch Europe triumph in a thrilling last day of the Ryder Cup.
