Golf gets expensive!!

PUBLISHED: 09:16 01 June 2012

Another week, another medal, another sunny day, writes Liz Chance.

On Wednesday, the ladies set out to compete for the Dodd Salver, this prize was presented to the club in 1978 by Mr H Dodd in memory of his wife Clarice and has been played annually ever since.

They may be watering their plants every evening but it has been day after day of glorious golf weather.

The course was challenging (again!) and any slightly wayward balls were hard to find in the thick lush grass. It proved to be an expensive round for some players, five lost balls over three holes……no names, no pack drill.

The winner of the salver was lady captain Anne Blackler who came in with 71 points and was the winner of Division 2. For second place, with 73 points, it was a battle of the Sheilas, Sheila Tallon just beating Sheila Skittrall on countback. Sheila Tallon also won Division 2 and the winner of Division 3 was Yvonne Anning.

Last Friday, the President’s team travelled to Tavistock to play their match in very blustery winds, apparently 40mph (it felt like more.) Congratulations to Margaret Deuce who was Sidmouth’s sole winner.
