Sidmouth ladies’ played the qualifying round for the regional finals of the Coronation Foursomes, to be held at the Isle of Purbeck, Dorset, in July, writes Maria Clapp.

The winners, and therefore the club’s representatives later this year, were Margaret Thompson and Jane Renkin with 31 points.

There were three pairs with 31points so countback was required. Runners-up were Marian Thomas and Paddy Hutchings and in third place was lady captain Angela Coles and Maria Clapp.

Once again the weather was beautiful. The course was in great shape and thanks go to the hard work by the green keepers to keep the course in such good condition.

Last Friday, the Presidents team played at Honiton where they unfortunately lost with the score being eleven-and-a-half to five in favour of the home side.
