The second round of the 2018-2019 DASLS Challenge Cup took place on Thursday 17th May at Bovey Tracey Golf Club. We were lucky to have a glorious evening of sunshine throughout the event. Teams of three play against each other, with the collective teams scored counted up at the end of the event, the team with the lowest score (or handicap should we say) being the winners on the night. We had some strong teams on the night and in the end the winners were victorious by only one point. However, i...

Challenge Cup Latest The annual Pitch & Putt Golf at the Northbrook Approach Golf Course, Exeter was, after postponement, blessed with a beautiful sunny evening and once again DASLS member firms pitched up for some gentle rivalry.   Of course the usual posturing and excuses pre-empted play with mentions of dodgy backs, arthritic wrists etc.   Actually the biggest challenge for the teams was finding the holes and tee areas.
