Our first report this month is one that many of our ladies will appreciate and be proud of, writes Lorna Sealy Nichols.

Two of our ladies have won the Killard Leavy Trophy, a Devon County pairs competition for Veteran Ladies.

Our two ladies, Barbara Mellor and Peggy Lomas, qualified earlier this summer at East Devon to represent our Club in this event. 

Through many years of golfing, these ladies have been generous with their time, encouraging and supporting other lady players, which makes this a particularly deserving win.

Barbara told me: “On Monday 20thSeptember fifty-nine couples went to Tiverton Golf Club to play the DCVLGA Autumn foursomes in perfect weather, ideal for good scoring!  One couple from each club represented their club to compete for the Killard Leavy Cup.  

After a nail-biting finish, East Devon won with 38 points closely followed by the Dartmouth couple with 37 points.”

Congratulations, Peggy and Barbara.

Stephen Birley
