Liz takes her Chance at Sidmouth
There are so many weather forecasting web sites available now that it is possible to keep clicking until you find the weather you want! On Wednesday I think you could have clicked all day but they were all wrong, writes Liz Chance.
Twenty ladies set out on Wednesday despite a prediction of rain in the late morning to compete for the sixth EWGA medal. The sun did not appear but everybody came in dry! The course was challenging with thick lush grass off the fairways causing problems finding balls, and when found, having the power to get back them onto the fairway.
Liz Chance managed to come in with a net 73 coming first and also winning Division 1, Marion Thomas came second and won Division 2, with Sheila Skittrall coming in third. Penny Ashby was the winner of Division 3.
On Monday, the Sheelah Creasey team travelled to Fingle Glen only for their match to be called off due to torrential rain and waterlogged greens.
On Tuesday, Julie Lye and Marie Timms were beaten at Dawlish Warre in the second round of the Doris-Willes-Little Competition to a very strong team from Thurlestone.
