Last Wednesday saw the Sidmouth ladies’ challenged by the club captain, David Pepperell, and club professional, Ben Thorne, to beat their score in a four-ball better ball, writes Liz Chance.
All entry fees would be returned and doubled if their score was beaten, if not the proceeds went to the captain’s charity - The Seve Ballesteros Foundation.
The weather was kind with just a drizzle affecting the players at the end of the field.
David and Ben achieved a fantastic 45 points, it was very interesting and a privilege to see how the course could be played if your handicap is scratch or five!
The charity benefitted from all the entry fees and raised over £50.
