Twenty ladies entered the Dodd Salver competition, writes Pauline Couldwell.

The Salver was presented in 1978 by Mr H Dodd in memory of his wife, Clarice Dodd.

It s inscribed 'Captains Prize' and was originally awarded to the winner of the lady captain's prize for the LGU Medal competition played on Lady Captain's Day.

From 2008, it has been presented on Presentation Evening and is a medal format played on a date at the discretion of the current lady captain and played in conjunction with a EGU medal.

The winner was Penny Ashby with nett 68 and runner up, with nett 70, was lady captain, Gill Paddon.

The EGU medal 12 was played in conjunction with the Dodd Salver and the Division One winner was Gill Paddon.

Division Two was won by Rosemary Walker and Division Three was won by Penny Ashby, who also recorded a two on the fourth hole. The other two scored on the day was by Maria Clapp on the sixth hole.

The last of the seasons inter club friendlies, a home meeting with High Bullen, was completed.

Three pairs from each club played a greensome matchplay format with Sidmouth giving a lot of shots to their opponents, but it was a 'friendly match' with the score inconsequential (but Sidmouth won two games and drew other one.

The players enjoyed a light meal afterwards, thanks to Kerry. Everyone had an enjoyable time although some of the High Bullen ladies enjoyed the views, but not the slopes!
