Thurlestone start off the season with Dartmoor League Shield win. Players from 15 clubs around South Devon met to play for the postponed Dartmoor League Shield at Thurestone Golf Club on Saturday. Play was delayed by 45 minutes due to a heavy frost but as the frost was burnt off the sun shone and the usual Thurlestone wind grew in strength making it a difficult day for golf. Scoring was tough and the individual winner was Thurlestone’s Malcolm Toone with a great score of 38 pts, 3 ahead of his closest rivals. The team event for the Dartmoor League Shield was also won by Thurlestone, for the first time. Malcolm Toone’s great score being added to by other team members Craig Blount and Tony Adams. Let’s hope this great start will lead to success for the team in the league this year.

Lee Bellamy and Sam Tabiner organised the event and had twenty juniors involved and lots of parents to help. Everyone had a great time in the lovely weather and it showed in their golf.
Every junior who participated got an award of a coloured band, showing their progress through the system.Opening today was Giles Hanmer-Grant, Isaac Lowden and Vinny Lowden, both Giles and Isaac achieved Amber grade with Vinny achieving an Amber + (plus grade). All 20 juniors were awarded a coloured band and some are on the Access + grade which means they tee off from the yellow or red tees.

Great win on Sunday for Thurlestone in the Devon County Basil Steer knockout winning 3-0 against Dainton Park. It was a tightly fought match in a relentless cold strong wind but despite the conditions all players did well competing up to the 17th and 18th holes. Sammy Ingham, Juniors Captain had to give 2 shots and managed to win 2/1 securing our first point with Noah Mulligan and Toby White winning 1 up on the 18th in their matches. Lots of fighting back and the boys should be proud of themselves, well done.
