ONE of the popular events in Tavistock Golf Club's fixtures is the Mixed Open and this year was no exception. Perfect golfing weather and a course in first class condition produced excellent results. Scoring was tight but first was Tavistock's pair Dave and Peggy Burge with 45pts on countback from Sparkwell's Wendy Simpson and Les Jennings and Sally Hills and Andy Dolan (Tavistock). Nearest the pin on the fourth was Kevin Lean (Tehidy Park), on the seventh Paul Congo (Tavistock) and on the 10th Les Jennings from Sparkwell. Dave and Peggy won the Betty Young Trophy for the best Tavistock pair. In the county Still Cup the ladies had an excellent win beating Churston 6-1. In the men's Palarait Trophy Tavistock had a 3-2 win over East Devon at Teignmouth in a exciting and high quality contest, finally clinching victory on the 18th green of the final match. In the men's Luxton Stableford topping division one with 40pts was Nick Mier, second Dennis Walker 39 pts on count back from Dave Treble. In division two Rick Crawford was first with 40pts on countback from Graham Dennis, third was Michael Thrasher with 38 pts on count back from Keith Kline and Ian Crichton. Harry Hopcroft had 39 pts in division three, second Andy Avens with 37pts in count back from Danvers Hugh.
