This week the ladies played for the Arthur Skinner Cup, writes Andrea Milton.

Mr Arthur Skinner was the president of Sidmouth Golf Club from 1958 to 1979 and provided the cup.

His wife Gertie also has a trophy named after her which we play for in October.

The competition took the form of a par or bogey competition.

This is like matchplay against the course. The player either wins the hole, getting a plus, halves the hole, getting a zero, or loses the hole, getting a minus.
