On Thursday 4th April 2013, one hundred and forty four Captains and Past Captains arrived at Saunton for the annual Inter County Team Championship.
All six West of England Counties namely; Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Gloucestershire, Somerset and Wiltshire were each represented by twenty four players from their respective County Captains and Past Captains Associations.
The competition is a stableford betterball event with each team divided into six pairs on each of Saunton’s East and West courses.
This year’s continual extremes of weather again played a part with a strong and very cold Easterly wind making conditions very difficult reflected by the below average scoring.
However, despite the adverse weather the Devon team, led by Mike Penlington, retained the trophy by a sizeable margin of twenty nine points although, as is usual in a betterball event, the next four teams were only separated by six points.
Once again, when meeting old friends, the clubhouse camaraderie was enhanced by a four course gourmet dinner and the obligatory Rioja.
