Saturday saw the Upper Crust trophy ‘up for grabs’, writes John Barnard.
Upper Crust Bakery owner Neil Faulkner has been a consistent and long standing supporter of the Club and a strong start sheet reflected the respect of club members.
The chosen format was a three man team with one score to count on the first six holes, two scores on the second six and all three scores on the final six holes. The pressure grows through the round.
Winners this time were Ian Bright and past club captains, Paul Hitchcock and Nick Bater. It was a convincing win by a clear four points.
They played consistently well, but two birdies on the tenth and then another six points on eleven eased them away from the pack.

Nick birdied the difficult sixteenth hole to seal their score.
In second place were David Stone, Les Pratt and Graham Davies. Two of them are Exeter City season ticket holders so they will have been pleased to get away from ECFC’s difficult start to the season and enjoy the splendid weather and good golf.

David managed a four point birdie on the twelfth and then eight points on the dangerous fourteenth made all the difference as they beat the third place team of Colin Macklin, Bob Welsman and Trevor Kerridge on countback.
In the ladies’ side of the competition Marie Timms, Marie Clapp and Andrea Milton won first place with an excellent 74 points.
There were nineteen twos and a great day was had by all.
