On Saturday Sidmouth ladies held their Spring Meeting, which is the official start to the season, writes Marie Clapp.

Unfortunately, the weather was not very spring like - there was a chill in the air - but it did stay dry, which was the main thing!

The players played in teams of three and played the Texas Scramble format. This format sees each player take their drive before the best shot is chosen and everybody takes their shot from that position also. This continues through the shots until the ball is in the hole.

Each player had to include four drives on the score card and also 20 per cent of the combined handicap. There was an excellent turn out of ladies for this event.

First prize went to the trio of lady captain Angela Coles, Coral Roberts and one of our new members Chris Cave.
