On Saturday, the annual Vallance Cup, presented by past captain from 1934, JF Vallance, was played for in incessant rain by a much reduced field, writes Hugh Dorliac.

Those hardy enough (or daft enough) to venture out all completed their rounds before some greens started to become unplayable.

Winning with a strong 36 points, as it turned out, was Will Hastie, who had been first on the tee that morning.

Runners-up were Mike Shepherd and Hugh Dorliac on a more modest 31 points apiece.

Last Friday’s Sidmouth Jewellers Stableford competition was won by Bob Andrews with a solid 39 points, earning a stroke deduction off his handicap.

Also dropping down a stroke was second-placed David Fish on 36, not what he wanted with his Challenge Cup final the next day!

Third was Jeremy Fox enjoying a rare day off, on 34 points.

The UpperCrust Monday Stableford was won in damp, windy conditions with a strong 39 points by Luke Sheppard. In second place was David Pepperell on 36 and Pat McCormack in third on 34.
