After two attempts, the annual OPM Golf Day was finally played on a blowy but dry day on 19 October at Staddon Heights Golf Club and eleven players took part. The course was again in excellent condition and the contest was followed by an enjoyable supper. Home players’ advantage shone through on this occasion, but the trophies were hotly contested.
The results were:
Bowring Bowl winner – Ray Roach
Spear Plate runner up – Bill Daw
Woodrow Salver winner – Ray Roach
Runner Up – Bill Daw
Nearest the Pin 17th – Peter Bidder
Runner up – Max Strelling
The event was enjoyed by all who attended.
Those who attended were: Julian Bacon, Peter Bidder, Peter Burrows, Bill Daw, Jay Foster, Roger Hind, John Lyddon, Ray Roach, Max Strelling, Mike Turpitt and Keith Waters.
Next year’s fixture is planned to be played at Elfordleigh, on Friday 12 September.

May 2017 Report
2017 saw another memorable annual competition in May. Fifteen members attended at the sun-drenched Yelverton Golf Club. Despite the low numbers there was keen competition with the Bowering Bowl (for overall winner) won by Simon Law with a creditable 35 pts. The Spear Plate (for those with handicap up to 18) was won by Peter Rutherford, while Roger Hind won the Woodrow Salver (handicaps 19 and above). As always there needed to be a prize for the person who showed most endeavour for the least reward and the proud recipient was Jay Foster!
Staff and boarders respect and value each other.
