It was a case of ‘Dangerous territory on Sunday at Sidmouth Golf Club’, writes John Barnard.

At stake was the Married Couples Cup, so much of ‘unlucky dear’ and it ‘didn’t miss by that much’ was heard.

Twelve brave couples took to the course and at the end of it, I am pleased to say twelve still married couples left the course still talking to each other (or so I am told).

In pride of place were Sheila and Paddy Tallon with a convincing 40 points.

Wisely no doubt, they only play golf together once a year and distance no doubt made the heart grow fonder as they played solid golf to win by two points.
