On Saturday, a large field of members played in memory of the late president John Lewis in the President's Trophy competition and were welcomed on the first tee by his family prior to teeing off. Mick Crane, posting a creditable 41, was the winner, with Andy Griffiths and Paul Hitchcock sharing the runners-up spot, both on 37 points.

The Saturday medal for Sidmouth Ladies saw some good scores - Maria Clapp won with 39 points with Alison Godwin coming in second place with 33 points and Susan Hackett in third position with 31 points.

Mandy Furniss and Penny Lyne played well in Division One of the Warren Crocus at Dawlish in lovely warm conditions, coming in fourth position with 37 points.

Despite the storm warnings the ladies were lucky to be able to play in rather windy conditions on home turf. Marian Andrews had a great score of 33, given the challenging conditions, beating Sheila Faulkner on card countback and Angela Coles came a close third with 31 points.

The wintry conditions are probably going to be ‘the order of the day’ now for a few months but let’s hope it at least stays dry for competitions.
