On Wednesday Sidmouth Ladies played the sixth and final round of the Rose Bowl and Basket competition.

Once again the weather was very kind to the ladies who have been extremely lucky to enjoy such mild weather for this time of the year!

The winner of the Rose Bowl competition for the day was Mandy Furniss with a splendid score of 39 point. It was a close thing for Sheila Faulkner also recorded the same score and so countback was called into play.

For Sheila this was quite some performance as she has not played for a few months.

The winner in the Basket competition was Susan Billinghurst with 37 points with the runner-up being Mavis Vanstone with 32.

With the final rounds completed there is of course an overall winner and triumphant in the Rose Bowl is Maria Clapp with Liz Chance the runner-up.

Having completed the final round, the overall winner of the Rose Bowl was Maria Clapp, with Liz Chance being the runner up.

Meanwhile, the overall winner of the Rose Basket was Sue Billinghurst with lady captain Margaret Deuce taking the runners-up berth.

There was also a stableford competition run alongside the Bowl and basket and this was won by Mandy Furniss with Sheila Faulkner second and Maria Clapp, third.

There were no two’s once again, although several players had near misses. Therefore, the pot of winnings will be well worth winning!
