After weeks of very hot dry weather, Friday 10th August saw the Inter-Club Semi Finals begin in cool but bright conditions. Unfortunately, this did not last and the rain which was forecast arrived and became heavier and heavier, with the early players getting the best of the weather.
By lunchtime it was clear that play would have to be suspended due to the greens becoming waterlogged, and all the players were called in to the Clubhouse. At this stage, only one match result had concluded, with Worthing beating Chichester in Division 1.
In the end it was agreed to re-schedule Divisions 2 and 3 matches for Friday 17th August and they will be played at Littlehampton after 2.00 pm (tee times to be confirmed). Division 4 will be played on the same day at Dyke Golf Club after 1.30 pm. Again, notification of exact times will be sent to the teams in due course.
The other Semi-Final Division 1 match was eventually recommenced, and saw Bognor Regis win through against Crowborough Beacon.
