The last day of summer saw Sidmouth ladies welcome their guests for Invitation Day, write Maria Clapp and Angela Coles.
The weather matched the course which once again was presented in pristine condition thanks to the superb efforts of Pete Standen and his team – many thanks to them.
The overall winners were Susan Hackett and her partner Ros Hearn from Teignmouth with 47 points.
It was close though for countback was required, edging Liz Chance and her partner Shirley Horsburgh from East Devon, who also had 47 points, into second olace.
Third place went to Ann Willoughby and her partner Lyn Parry from Downes Crediton. The prize of four green fees for a guest player to play at Sidmouth again was won by Helen Sykes from Knole Park in Kent.

The format was a bonus stableford; if a player scored a net birdie they could double their points on that hole.
Susan Hackett played well and managed to double her points on six holes! She won the competition with 59 points.
In second place with 50 points was Yvonne Anning who also managed to double points on several holes. Third place with 46 points was Marian Andrews. The weather was exceptional for the time of year, another warm and sunny day. How lucky we were!
