On Saturday, the players at Sidmouth Golf Club competed for the Bater Removals monthly medal and aptly, Division One was won by David Bater, son of Bater Removals owner Nick Bater and David is also employed by this excellent local Company, writes John Barnard.

He won with a convincing nett 62 (gross 66) having eagled the par five 13th and then birdied the last two holes.

He won by four shots from Dave Hoare although there were three players on nett 65 and they had to be separated on countback.

Dave had a steady start on the first four holes before getting a few bogies, but after a birdie on the thirteenth, held it together well before an unfortunate bogie on the last.

Neil Holland was third and after eagling the first, he dropped three shots on the front nine which he couldn’t quite get back so had to settle for third place and going back to plus one handicap.

In Division Two, John Rockey will be pleased he is playing some better golf again as he won the Division but again, only on countback ahead of Simon Emerson and Keith Newton.

Nine pars were the key to John’s success and a mainly steady back nine. A couple of double bogies on the back nine counted against Simon while Keith’s birdie on the last wasn’t quite enough to get him into the winner’s circle.
