The summer sun continues to blaze brightly and on such a day Sidmouth golf club held their Mixed Pairs Open, writes Hugh Dorliac.

In such dry conditions, which meant it was tough even to get the tee pegs into the ground, many pairs found it hard going, but not all!

Having spent the winter months down under honing their golf skills on lush New Zealand courses, John and Diane Anderson returned in style to their home course to beat all opposition with a terrific 47 points, 11 points better than par and three points better than runners-up Mike Hobbs and Alison Goodwin.

The third place pair were Paul and Sue Hackett on 41, whilst the best visiting pair were Alan and Maggie White from Findon Valley, Oxfordshire.
