The month began with an upturn in fortune evidenced by a convincing 5 ½ - 2 ½ win at home against Royal North Devon, but this was sadly reversed with interest in the away match which RND won 6 ½ - 1 ½ (in spite of a dogged, hard-earned point by our last pair) thereby retaining the Johnny Fallon Driver trophy by a score of 9 – 7. Against Bude at home, played in the tail–end of Hurricane Katia, the team achieved a 3 – 3 draw, but again lost the combined trophy, the Bude Putter, by 4 – 8. At this rate the hypothetical Seniors Trophy Cabinet is likely to be looking a little bare until next year. However, the final match of the month produced a creditable away win at Tehidy by 6 matches to 2.
On the Holywell the Stableford was won by the now all-seeing David Balmford with 38 points followed by Roger Worth on 36 and Dermot Studd (on the podium yet again) with 34 points on count-back from Mike Parry.
We also played a friendly match against Yelverton at home on a glorious autumn day which we won 3 -1. Our visitors were most impressed with the course and also made a special mention of the very friendly manner in which they were made to feel welcome at the Club, particularly by our bar staff.
Thank you, guys and gals all.
