There were slim pickings last week as the winter starts to arrive at Sidmouth Golf Club, writes Hugh Dorliac.

The weekend was a golf free zone at Sidmouth as the rain made the ground surface a bit too slippery for comfort, but, either side of that, golf was played with some solid results.

The Friday Stableford was closely contested with Nick Gingell coming out on top with a fine 40 points, ahead of the ever-present Mark Thomas on 39. Jonathan Lee took third, with a not so distant 37.

The Seniors were out in force on Monday with Wiggaton’s own, John White, winning their Stableford Division One on countback, ahead of Chris Grubb and John Billingsley, all recording 35 points apiece.

Division Two was won with a score of 33 by Ed Bamborough with Dave Atkinson (33) and Nigel Sharp (30) taking the minor places.
