Twelve months ago this competition was won with a score of 36 stableford points. Today, 25th September, the winners had 34 points and won by a margin of three shots. A fresh breeze, some early showers, slick greens and rough made more difficult by overnight rain ensured that such a good score was never likely to be repeated today.

A full field, starting from two tees, of golfers from all over the South of England were able to enjoy the challenge that is the Church course at St Enodoc as well as plenty of sunshine. Those in the money, and more money than is on offer at most open mixed golf competitions were -

1st Brian & Yvonne Medlam Saunton GC 34 points winning £200

2nd Alan Vickery & Stephanie Bristow Enmore Park GC 31 points winning £140

3rd Stephen & Alison Palmer Bath GC 30 points winning £120

4th Robert Dooley & Clare Page Bristol & Clifton GC 30 points winning £100

5th George & Nicky Gawman Tavistock GC 29 points winning £80
