High on the hills above the hectic ‘hubbub’ of Sidmouth folk week the Sidmouth ladies played their weekly golf competition, writes Andrea Milton.
This week they were competing for the Morritt Medal.
This original Medal is engraved with a lady golfer and is dated June 1894.
Discovered in 2001, by the then club secretary, it was presented to the ladies’ section and is played for annually.
There was a stiff wind blowing from the north and a drizzly rain which persisted throughout, getting heavy at times.

However, 13 ladies completed the round under difficult playing conditions, and scoring was generally not as good as usual.
The winner of the Morritt Medal, with pars on the sixth and 18th, was Liz Chance, who was three shots clear of runner-up Marie Timms.
