Clear blue skies and sunshine were the order of the day for the Charity mixed Texas Scramble organised by the ladies at Sidmouth Golf Club. 
A respectable £137.50 was made for Sidmouth Hospice at Home and a great effort from everybody involved. 
The team returning to the clubhouse with the winning round were Sheila Faulkner, Ros Eaton, Jonathan Lee and Sean Murphy with a nett score of 55.4, closely followed in second place, on count back, by Mo Borer, Penny Anderson, John Eaton and Bob Reynolds 
In third place with a very close nett 55.4 were Gill Johnson, Sheila Skittrall, Crawford Masson and Paul Whitrow. 
An enjoyable day was had by all on one of the best days of May so far this year- many thanks to all who supported. 
A small field of ladies played in the Saturday Medal competition on May 22. Thankfully, the weather was kinder with full sunshine in the afternoon but conditions under foot were somewhat damp, especially for this time of year. 
Coming in first was Maria Clapp with a nett 76, closely followed by Marie Timms with 77 and Mo Borer with 78. 
Well done ladies! 
Full sunshine and blue skies were great to behold for the Ladies Stableford competition, very kindly sponsored by Kings Garden Centre, on Wednesday, May 26.  
Conditions underfoot were still a little soggy but a good day was enjoyed by all who entered. The winner, winning a £50 garden voucher, was Vanessa Ireson with 35 points, followed by Sue Dowen with 32 points and coming a close third was Sheila Faulkner with 30 points.  
Only one '2' was achieved by Penny Lyne. Well done to all!  
Georgia King, from Kings Garden Centre, kindly visited the club to present the vouchers in the afternoon and it was lovely to enjoy the club’s new balcony in the sunshine after the match and a few pink faces were evident after the 18 holes. 
Sunscreen will be the order of the day from now, on we hope.
