The Sidmouth seniors’ home match against Lyme Regis was played on a day when showers were forecast, but fortunately stayed away long enough to get both teams around the 18 holes in the dry.
First out were Chris Grubb and Bruce Harcourt and it was Bruce who took the honours on the first hole.
However, thereafter it was a close contest all the way round and, although Chris and Bruce were one up after 17, they unfortunately lost the 18th to see their match halved.
Next out were Mike Davis and Colin Paddon, who lost the first, but fought back well in another close match to be all square at the halfway point.
They did win the 10th and the 14th, but lost the 16th and the 17th and their match also ended in honours even.

The next two groups of Malcolm Couldwell with Charles Brown and Keith James and Nigel Sharp both played well against their respective Lyme Regis pairings.
Both home pairs enjoyed success by a margin of four-and-three and it all left Sidmouth winning their final home match of the season, beating Lyme Regis, four-and-a-half to one-and-a-half.
