This year’s County Championships are just a few days away and the place to watch many of the best lady golfers in Sussex is going to be at Ifield this weekend! To say that we are excited about hosting the event would be an understatement…… for me personally as the host Lady Captain it is both a thrill and just a little stressful to have this honour in ‘my year’.
Behind the scenes we have all been working hard to ensure that the competitors and supporters have a great experience. Our Head Greenkeeper Steve Hayes (2014 Sussex Greenkeeper of the Year no less!) and his team have been working flat out to ensure the course is presented in tip top condition.
Everything is going to plan: some of the key contenders have been spotted having a practice round or two; the tee markers and County flag will arrive today; I’ve checked the weather, and it doesn’t look too bad at the minute (fingers crossed). The County President and County Captain will arrive early doors on the 29th, car park spaces have been reserved; our bar and catering team are fully stocked and ready to go!
I’m really looking forward to seeing our best Sussex golfers play my home course. Please come along to watch and support the players, we’ll be sure to extend a warm and friendly Ifield welcome to you all.
