The Sidmouth Open was played on Saturday, writes John Barnard.

This is a three-man team event off three quarters of individual handicaps scored a medal, best score to count.

Unfortunately, there was neither a large entry or many visiting teams.

Club captain Ray Gunston was very pleased though as his team, including Stuart Coles and Craig Melluish came out on top. There were three teams all on 58 points so countback was needed to determine the prizes.

This wasn’t easy as it revealed some scoring issues so the winner changed a number of times before the final announcement!
