Saturday saw the Nissan (Exeter) sponsored golf day, organised by club captain Neil Holland in his own inimitable style, writes Hugh Dorliac.
The format was a Las Vegas Scramble where teams of four, decided which of their drives to take by a throw of a dice on each hole.
Also a Joker element was introduced where extra points could be gained by using their joker.
The last teams finished as dusk fell and in the presentations afterwards, when a buffet and hypnotist, which were all part of the entry fee, fed and entertained the crowd, the winners, with an excellent scramble score of 50.2, were Ben Gibbs, Aaron Taylor, Dan Colson and Lee Barber.
Second place went to a team from Sidmouth Cricket Club. The winning ladies' team were Sally and Sue Billinghurst, Wendi Abraham and M Bowers. David Fish also had a great day, recording a hole in one on the fourth and he kindly treated everyone to a drink to celebrate his good fortune.
