It was a busy weekend for competitive golf at Sidmouth, despite a very wet Saturday.

In the Sidmouth Jewellers sponsored Friday Stableford, Jim Metcalf won with 39 points from Paddy Tallon on 38, taking second on countback from Chris Lewis. Current leaders of the Friday league table are Mark Thomas on 80 points from Ben Hodgson on 67.

The annual Vallance Cup competition was won this year by Kym White, posting a solid score of 41 points in tricky conditions. Bash Baldwin and Sandy Hughes took the minor places.

Neil and Sheila Faulkner won the Married Couples competition on Sunday with a modest 34 points from Bob and Marian Andrews on 32. 

Last week's Seniors Medal was won by Chris Grubb with a net 65, beating Bob Cook 68 and Dave Atkinson 70. Lowest number of putts prize went to David Cowler with just 28 putts, and Bob Cook took the nearest the pin prize. 

Sidmouth's Parker Trophy team won through to Finals day for the second year in a row by beating Royal North Devon at Tiverton on Sunday. Wins by Perry & Colson, and Holland & White plus a good half from Pickard & Taylor saw them comfortably through. Finals day will be on Sunday, September 3, with Sidmouth facing either Tiverton or Wrangaton in the morning semi-final.
