With the pins in some very tricky places it was going to take some exceptional golf to win the Coronation Cup at Lyme Regis, which is open to all members, writes Richard Jackman.

Only two players bettered par and one was Neal Cullen who helped himself to two excellent birdies on the front nine before steadying himself on the back nine to come in with a well-worked nett 69 to take gold.

Finishing on 70 was Simon Doyle who by contrast had two birdies on consecutive holes on the back nine to finish a very worthy second, and but for one hole, might have taken top spot.

Alfie Crisp held his competitive nerve to finish third with 72, and the top lady was Lizzie Linnert, who kept her cool to score a steady nett 76.

In the Lyme Regis seniors’ July Stableford, played the following day, Division One was won by Stephen Pitt with the best score of the day on 39 points.

Leader in the clubhouse, for some time, was David Lines, who was quick off the blocks, scoring 21 points on the front nine and he ended second with 38 points.

David Binns had a lean patch in the middle of his round, but still finished third on 37.

Division Two was much tighter as Richard Stubbs and Gareth Vaughan both ended with a worthy, competitive 37 points, but by one point, on countback, Stubbs stole the glory to win.

Dave Dallas improved on the back nine to take third with 36 points.

This week, Lyme Regis celebrate their 125 years with a week of competitive golf culminating in an attempt at the fastest round of golf on Friday, before a special gala dinner on the Saturday evening.
