On Wednesday, Sidmouth Ladies played for the Dodd Salver, writes Maria Clapp.
This was presented to the ladies section in 1978 by Mr Dodd in memory of his wife Clarice Dodd. A medal was run in conjunction with the salver.
First place went to our lady captain, Sheila Faulkner, who came in with a nett 65. This was four shots better than her handicap, which is quite an achievement as Sheila plays off of a handicap of 10.
Second place went to one of our recent members Gerri Whitrow who had a nett 66.
Third place was taken by Maria Clapp with a nett 69. Both Sheila and Gerri have had their handicaps reduced as a result of their success.

Three ladies achieved a two. They were Margaret Thompson, Sheila Tallon and Maria Clapp. Therefore the pot will have to be divided by three!
