On a frosty, but sunny morning the Axe Cliff Seniors and Ladies joined forces in one of their friendly encounters of the year, writes Robert Grove.

The teams, which were drawn out, produced some strong pairings with the promise of some close scores.

However, the final results showed that nothing can be predicted in this game of golf we all love!

The greensomes format enabled some of the players to benefit from long tee and fairway shots but it was accuracy, not distance, which won the day.

The winning teams contained some of the newer members to the club, but they were matched with the knowledge and experience of older members which produced the results.

In first place were Lesley Crawford (with her new swing) and Nigel Garwood (with his unconventional swing) with 34 points. Second and third places were contested by players in the same group with Anne Jarvis and Chris Jowett (32) just edging out Helen Gaudie and Gilbert Cox (31). The talk at the meal afterwards was about the real winner - the occasion - with the golf course at Axe looking a picture in the spring sunshine. Everyone is looking forward to a month’s time when the seniors’ and ladies’ get together again.

Round seven of the Winter League was not as well attended as earlier rounds owing to holidays etc, but there were still some good scores recorded.
