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.
