Home match v Okehampton — Friday, September 13

Launceston 6

Okehampton 1

THESE matches are decided by the two sides playing each other both at home and away during the summer season. The two scores are then added to decide the winning side.

Okehampton were the first to play at home back in April, and managed to win by 3.5-2.5.

The return leg was played when Launceston welcomed six pairs of golfing seniors to their St Stephens course on a beautiful September morning.

The challenge for Launceston was to make up for the defeat which they suffered against the Devon side in the spring.

This time, being less familiar with the Cornish course, the Okehampton boys went down to a 5-1 defeat.

Since Okehampton’s win back in April had been by 3.5-2.5,  the resulting overall score was 7.5-4.5 in Launceston’s favour.

‘Nearest the pin’ bottle of wine prize was won for Launceston by Les Clements.

Home match v Torquay — Wednesday, September 18

Launceston 6.5

Torquay 1.5

LAUNCESTON were the hosts to eight pairs of golfers from Torquay on a beautiful September day.

This was the return leg after Torquay had narrowly beaten Launceston by 4.5-3.5 in April.

On Launceston’s course, the Torquay players found ‘the rough’ rather unforgiving after any wayward shots. However, the Launceston players are used to this on their own course and captain for the day, Rodney Duke, reported that his team pulled off a decisive 6.5 to 1.5 win, making the overall score 10-6 to Launceston and securing the return of a perpetual silver salver.

Nearest the pin prize for Launceston was won by Ian Nolan.
