The opening fixture of the GSGB's 2015 season heralded a welcome return of the sun after some rather wet weather in the week prior to the meeting. The courses at Lyme Regis and East Devon are both situated in beautiful locations and offer glorious cliff top views of the Dorset and Devon coastline. The 71 members who took part enjoyed very pleasant playing conditions with no sign of rain on either day. Both courses were in wonderful condition with good putting surfaces and looked very colourful with the gorse in full bloom.

At Dinner we were joined by the Lyme Regis Captain Roger Seed and his wife Leisa. Roger spoke of the club’s excellent junior section which includes three players who play off a handicap of 1 or below. Roger is no slouch himself playing off 2 but his son is showing him the way, playing off a handicap of 1. GSGB Chairman Linda Hill then presented the £500 donation towards the club's junior section.


The Founders Trophy for men was successfully defended by David Archibald, playing off 5 from East Herts with 75 points. The ladies Founders Trophy was won by Pat Bennett, playing off 6 from Reading who scored 70 points. The runners-up prizes were won by Neil Martin from The Vale with 73 points and our Chairman, Linda Hill from Bath with 70 points. A full list of all prize winners can be seen below.

The next event will be at Bath / Kingsdown on June 24/25th.
