On a bright and sunny day the girls of Sussex took on Middlesex at the picturesque Cottesmore Golf & Country Club on Sunday. Having lost and halved in this friendly fixture over the last two years, the girls were set to get their revenge!
The format was greensomes matchplay and Sussex ‘loaned’ a pair to Middlesex to make up the numbers, thank you to Fenella and Yasmin (even though they did notch up a win for the opposition!) Sussex won the match 2½-1½.
The most resounding win went to our England Golf Under 16 South East Region pair of Chloe Burdon and Lille-Beau Thorpe who won 6&5. These two girls continued their good form from the previous day when they represented the South East in victory against the South Region. We also welcomed newcomer Salysa Mason who joins us from Surrey. The team was:
Lizzie Price Captain (Nevill) & Salysa Mason (Cottesmore) halved giving 6 shots
Chloe Burdon (Nevill) & Lille-Beau Thorpe (Cowdray Golf) won 6&5 giving 10 shots
Megan Edwards (Worthing) & Holly Crompton (East Brighton) won 2&1 giving 14 shots
Sasha Gardiner (Chartham Park) & Katie Field (Bognor Regis) lost 2&1 giving 1 shot to Fenella Buss (East Brighton) & Yasmin Hang (Goodwood)
We now have an Elite squad which has great strength in depth. Next week the squad are in training with our County Coach Ryan Fenwick where the emphasis will be on short game tactics and skills.
