A field of 124 golfers, which included 66 visitors from as far away as Wareham, Minchinhampton and Finchley, London, took part in the Sidmouth Seniors Open.

The weather was dry and sunny although a sharp northerly wind kept everyone wrapped up. The course was in excellent condition with many positive comments coming from the visitors.

Twins Colin and Andrew Brown from the Oake Manor club in Taunton won the competition.

Mike Anderson and Jeremy Dewhurst won the category for home players.
