On a glorious day at Lewes GC the SCLGA Committee took on the SCGU (Men’s Committee) in our annual match, led by our County President Mel Boyse on her home course. With light breezes, the course and its spectacular views were at their very best.
With six pairs playing four ball betterball there was much friendly rivalry as well as ribbing about previous matches. Despite a valiant half from the first match out, County President/Captain Mel Boyse and Sue Todd versus the Bernard Yates and Alan Covey, the men won 4-2.
Despite Rosie’s C-H’s four birdies, she and partner Roseanne Rees were under pressure all the way to the 18th, with Roseanne sinking a great putt in front of the gallery to half their match. Well done to Jan Hobden and Donna Davies for securing the only win in the last match of the day.
Think we need new tactics for next year ladies (even Mel bringing in a couple of ringers didn’t work!) as the men retain the trophy, which Mel presented to Bernard Yates, SCGU President.
