Lye lands success in Sidmouth Ladies’ Flags competition

The Sidmouth ladies are in action today (Friday) with a match against the club’s senior men, writes Penny Ashby.

What’s more, next Tuesday (September 30) see’s the staging of the lady captain’s Away Day meeting which involves action at Woodbury Park.

Earlier this week the ladies played their final medal of the season in glorious late September sunshine.

Sheila Thomson continued her winning form with an impressive nett 66 score. Marie Timms was runner-up with nett 69, and Susan Hackett, a relatively new golfer, features again among the leaders, coming third with nett 71.

Last Wednesday the Sidmouth lady golfers held a ‘flags’ competition. Each competitor took a numbered flag. Once their allocated number of shots, including handicap, ws used up, they placed the flag on the course at the point they reached. After a closely contested round, the winner was Julie Lye, very neatly placing her flag in the final hole!
