On Wednesday the Sidmouth ladies held their Invitation Day, writes Andrea Milton.

This event gives ladies the chance to invite a golfing friend from another club to play with them in the competition.

There was a good field of thirty six players and the competition was a four ball better ball.

The course was in great condition and the visiting ladies were very complimentary about it, and also the delicious refreshments enjoyed after the golf!

There were prizes of John Lewis vouchers for the first, second and third winners and sleeves of balls for any twos achieved.
