- Credit: Archant
The Grandmothers’ Shield was played at Sidmouth and it resulted in a very close contest, ultimately decided by countback, writes Penny Ashby.
Linda Reynolds and Sue Billinghurst were the two in the thick of things at the end with Reynolds claiming first and Billinghurst having to settle for the runners-up berth.
Last Sunday a mixed friendly match was played at home against Crediton. The Sidmouth team notched up another good win in this series.
These Sunday matches are a very popular form of golf, as they enable mixed couples to visit a range of interesting clubs and courses, play golf in a very sociable format , often making new friends in the process. Last but not least, the golf is usually followed by a most enjoyable Sunday roast, thus giving all the cooks among us the day off!
The Orr Cup was played for earlier this week (July 16) when 34 ladies took part, some playing through the early mist, although this cleared later to give us a sunny and very warm round.
