We’ve been waiting with anticipation for the last few weeks, so it’s great that County Match Week 2015 has arrived at last after months of planning. And what a first day! Despite our pleas to the South Downs Rain God to stay away from Worthing, most of the players and their caddies got a good dousing in the morning and then again in the afternoon – but we think now that everyone’s waterproofs have been tested, they can stay in the bag for the rest of the week.
The Sussex team got off to a great start this morning in their first match against Middlesex. Following out the long established pairing of Chelsea & Paula, we also saw our two juniors securing points on the board with their partners. There was some awesome golf played by Chelsea & Paula, Chloe & Jelina and Aileen & Penny with all the foursomes partnerships notching up emphatic early wins.
After lunch, Chelsea, our County Champion, led the team out for the singles matches, with Alice, Karen, Sophie and Katherine joining the afternoon line up. There was plenty of quality golf played, with birdies galore as the team closed out the match to beat Middlesex 9-0.

A great day’s work ladies, well done for such an impressive first day’s play. Tomorrow we play Kent, so keep up the great golf. We hope to see lots of supporters again, 8.30 start, so see you bright and early!
Sussex would like to thank our Sponsors, The Event & Exhibition Partnership, JRB Golf and Woolly Bear Design for their funding and Support for County Match Week this year.
