Sidmouth ladies bow out of Presidents Cup

PUBLISHED: 16:44 25 July 2018

The Sidmouth ladies have been very busy with fixtures over the last couple of weeks, writes Maria Clapp.

The President’s team were in local derby action with a meeting against East Devon that saw a Sidmouth success, four-and-a-half to two-and-a-half.

This was a great result as East Devon has a far larger ladies section than Sidmouth, thus having a greater number of players to choose from!

Next up the Presidents team had another fixture, this time against Dawlish – a rearranged match from earlier in the year when the Dawlish course was closed due to the weather conditions.

Sidmouth ladies were beaten 7-0 on this occasion. When Dawlish came to Sidmouth we beat them 7-0 and so clearly, home advantage is crucial in these meetings as players are so aware of the lie of the land. This visit to Dawlish saw the home course both dry and hard and this meant the ball did not end up where you had hoped! However, we did enjoy a lovely buffet afterwards and the ladies had a great time mixing with the opponents.

The following Monday the presidents were in action at Woodbury where they lost a closely contested match four-and-a-half to two-and-a-half. That represents a great result on an away course. Woodbury winning on the day meant that they will go through to the semi-finals of the Presidents Cup. Sidmouth Ladies wished them all the best for the next round, which is being held in August. This has now completed the Presidents fixtures for this season. Although we were not successful in going through to the next round, we felt that we had played to our best and represented Sidmouth Golf Club.

Last Wednesday we held a foursomes competition where, playing with a partner, one drives the odd numbers and the other the evens with alternate shots following the initial drive. It was a close contest with countback used to decide that Yvonne Anning and Marian Andrews, with an excellent score of 41 points, were the winners. Edged into second place, also with 41, were Penny Lyne and Margaret Thompson. Of some consolation for the runners-up was that they were the only team to achieve a two.
