Sidmouth Upper Crust meeting hole-in-one for John Billingsley
- Credit: Archant
This week’s winner of the Upper Crust Monday Stableford was Mike Gosling with a convincing 42 points, three better than the field, writes John Barnard.
Long-standing member Mike hasn’t figured in the prizes for a while now, but going out late as he always does, he put in a convincing performance, two birdies in the first four holes, then a number of pars and to top it off, he birdied the last.
John Billingsley was second with 39 points. There were three players on 39 points so John ‘got the nod’ on countback.
The long time clubhouse leader was enjoying a steady round which suddenly came alive when he had a hole-in-one on the 15th.
Although there are seven par threes at Sidmouth, with most it is impossible to see the ball go in except on a couple of holes, when the flag base may be in a viewable position.

Still, it’s great to look for your ball and then find it in the hole or, to have a shout from the next tee where players have seen it drop.
Unfortunately, the five points earnt on the 15th were not enough for the win this time.

Kym White retains his lead in the eclectic ahead of Moray Bosence.
