All eight teams arrived in time at Mannings Heath for the Morrice Foursomes Quarter Final being played on the beautifully manicured and immaculately presented Waterfall Course. They were welcomed with heavy drizzle which hadn’t been forecast, but thankfully had disappeared by 10.30am and left sunshine for the remainder of the day. There were plenty of close matches, and one pair having to return to the first play-off hole where Nevill beat Willingdon with a birdie putt.
The results were:
- Cottesmore beat West Hove
- West Sussex beat Ham Manor
- Nevill beat Willingdon
- Royal Ashdown beat Cowdray Golf
The Semi-Final and Final will both be played on Saturday 3rd September at Golf at Goodwood on the Park Course, located at the Goodwood Park Hotel (not the Kennels). Supporters are welcome so make sure you have the date in your diary.
The first match will be between Cottesmore and West Sussex at 8.30am followed by Nevill v Royal Ashdown Forest at 9am. These matches will be followed by the 3rd/4th play off and at 13:20 and the Final at 13:50.
Well done to everyone and congratulations to the winners. Our thanks to the Mannings Heath team for their hospitality, the Pro Shop who couldn’t have been more helpful, the Greenkeepers for a beautifully prepared course and to Lady Captain Lesley-Anne Collins-Powell for her support and her great ball spotting team. Last but not least, thank you to Sandra Holman and Mel Boyse for starting the players!
