Lady Captain’s Day is one of the highlights of every lady captains year and on Saturday we all enjoyed a wonderful day, courtesy of our current ladies’ captain, Maria Clapp, writes Andrea Milton.

The event was a three person team Bowmaker competition with the format being two scores to count on each hole.

Not only were there prizes for first, second and third place, but Maria had managed to secure 18 sponsors and so there was also a prize on every single hole.

These included longest drive, nearest the pins, nearest the gin!, and so on.

Many thanks to the sponsors who included: Ottery Computers, Winchesters greengrocers, Lovells Garage, Fields of Sidmouth, Upper Crust Bakery, Culshaw Catering, Ross Troake club Professional and many friends and family of Maria who were all very generous with their support.

All the winners received a variety of superb luggage items presented by the lady captain who also gave every lady who had played a goody bag.

Donations were made to this year’s charity Clic Sargent supporting cancer in children and the sum of £95 was raised on the day.

Vice captain Sheila Faulkner presented Maria with a bouquet in thanks from everyone.
