Sidmouth Seniors took a team to Wrangaton Golf Club near Ivybridge, which has the unusual format of nine holes on the moor and nine holes in a parkland setting, writes Chris Grubb.

The weather provided a few heavy showers, but Sidmouth seniors’ enjoyed the challenge of this unique course.

Captain for the day, Tony Stoyle, playing with Paul Blay, were two up after eight holes then lost three in a row to go one down after fifteen, but fought back to halve their match. Malcolm Caudwell and Pat Kenny lost five-and-four after getting a bad start.

Chris Timms and Glen Hewitt won (score not available) after one of their opponents didn’t turn up, which left the match a bit one-sided. Lawrence Hill and Vernon Ruffle surprisingly lost five-and-four, even after Vernon had several shots from his handicap to spare!

Brian LeMesurier and David Stone triumphed on the 18th after a titanic struggle all the way round, and the last pairing of Brian Cole and John Townsend lost by the surprising margin of seven-and-five, particularly as the pair had been in good form individually during the summer.

This brought the final score to Wrangaton three-and-a-half to Sidmouth two-and-a-half.

However, this was the second leg of a two-leg affair with Sidmouth ultimately the overall winners at seven-and-a-half to four-and-a-half.
