On Wednesday Sidmouth ladies played a medal competition, writes Andrea Milton.

Some people find this the most challenging and unforgiving format to play as every hole has to be putted out to completion.

After the heavy rain of the previous day the course was playing considerably slower than of late with much less roll on the balls.

Although we started our round under leaden skies the sun came out later on and it got pleasantly warm, with the swallows and swifts flying around us low to the ground.

The winner of the medal was Chris Cave with a great score of nett 69.
