Congratulations to Alice Barnes of West Sussex for becoming the new County Champion today. A thrilling semi final on Sunday morning saw her beat Aileen Greenfield (Pyecombe) three times County Champion, on the 20th hole.
The other semi final was a re-match of last year’s final between Karen Sykes (Worthing) and Emma Carberry (Highwoods) which turned out to be another fabulous head to head match which was finally won by Emma on the 23rd hole!
The final saw Alice and Emma both playing some stunning long hitting golf, despite their tough semi finals in the morning. Alice continued to played consistently well and closed out the match 6&4.
The Plate final saw another West Sussex player, Daisy Kane play Jelina Fernando of Pyecombe, with Daisy closing out the match 5&4. An amazing weekend for West Sussex with the triple crown of Championship, Plate and Sussex Club Scratch Trophy.
Daisy Wakelin of East Sussex National won the Grant White Cup for best handicap and the Stobart Cup for best scratch on Friday’s 36 hole qualifier.

A big thank you to the Captain and Ladies Captain of East Brighton, their helpers and the club’s staff who helped to make a great 2014 Championship.
