Jubilee celebrations for Sidmouth golfers amid some tight comps

The Devon Lady Captain’s Golf Society Spring Meeting was recently held at Teignmouth, a competition in which past Lady Captains from various clubs throughout Devon compete against one another.
Sidmouth Ladies did extremely well, with Marie Timms winning the Bronze Division with a great score of 40 points, just missing out by one point from the overall winner; and Penny Lyne won the Silver Division with 37 points.
Sidmouth Ladies held a fun Jubilee competition, with everyone dressed in patriotic red, white and blue. The competition was three clubs and a putter, and coming in first was Yvonne Anning with 38 points and in second place was Gerri Whitrow with 37 points.
However, in recognition of the Queen’s 70-year reign, the Captain presented a special prize of a commemorative glass to the best dressed lady of the day, which went to Sheila Skitteral.
In the Palairet Memorial Trophy, Sidmouth went down to a defeat against Exminster in a game played at Crediton.
Damien Gee / Neil Holland and Graham Davies / Dan Colson both won handsomely, but the other three Sidmouth teams suffered narrow defeats for an overall 3-2 loss.
Thank you to Deer Park Country House and Otter Vale Motor Services for their sponsorship and the stunning kit.
