Sidmouth ladies contested the Radford Cup, writes Maria Clapp.

This competition has been running since 1964 and the format is a stableford. What’s more the contest was played out on the hottest day of the year to date!

However, the heat did not affect Ann Willoughby as she recorded the exceptional score of 41 points to lift the cup.

The Willoughby success also brought about a two shot reduction in her handicap.

Andrea Milton took second place with another good score – she carded 38 points and that saw her handicap reduced by a shot.
