The first Saturday of the month heralds the monthly medal at Sidmouth Golf Club, sponsored by Harrison-Lavers and Potbury, a local Company that have supported Sidmouth Golf Club for many years, writes John Barnard.
It is split into three divisions, based on player’s handicaps. In Division One, Jonathan Lee showed he is back in form with a one over par gross score of 67.
A double bogie on hole three wasn’t the best of starts, but on the back nine, Jonathan picked up three birdies with only one dropped shot to record a nett 63. In second place was Neil Holland who shot a gross 65, but a nett 66 as he has a plus one handicap.
He also managed three birdies, offset by just the two bogies.
In third place was David Bater who was flying along only one over gross stood on the 16th tee.

A finish of double bogie, bogie, bogie wrecked his card and he lost second spot on countback from Neil.
In Division Two, Bob Johnstone won with a nett 65, beating Craig Melluish on countback.

Bob didn’t have a great start, but after a bogie on hole ten, he managed a succession of pars and then scored a six on the eighteenth!
Craig made the mistake of birdying the first hole (never birdie the first they say, I don’t know why), but three double bogies cost him a win.
Harrison Jones was third with a nett 69, just pipping Alex Duckworth on countback.
In Division Three, Paul Charlton beat Charlie Rolls on countback, both shooting a nett 71.
Paul had a better back nine with a number of nett pars although a seven on the eighteenth almost scuppered his chances. Veteran Charlie, played really well with some pars early on but a ten on the eighth messed his card up with another high score on the 13th - oh what could have been.
Allan Malcolm was third with a nett 72.
