On Wednesday Sidmouth ladies played for the Dodd Salver.

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

The weather played its part in proceedings too for the threatened rain did not materialise.

The winner on the day was Sue Billinghurst with a net 66, and that also led to her winning Division Three – and seeing her handicap cut by three shots which means she will now be playing off 27.

The runner-up was Maria Clapp with a net 69, playing to her handicap. The Clapp round also led to her winning Division One and she too had a handicap reduction and will now play off 19.
