The 13th playing of the Walking Stick competition which was inaugurated by Barry Jones in recognition to past Seniors Captains of Sidmouth Golf Club, and an opportunity for an annual get together for those still playing, writes Chris Grubb.

Notable non players present this year included a former captain from as far back as 1991 in the form of Leslie Harlow as well as Bill Bailey, Geoff Whitehead and David Ridlington all who were made very welcome.

The Walking Stick competition had a history of having been won by a different player every year. That was until this year when the spell was broken.

Barry Jones came in fourth place with 34 points joint second were John Game and Hugh Dorliac both on 35 points, but the clear and very proud winner was former 2010 champion Ray Gunston.
