The final day of the Scratch Foursomes at Cowdray Park started as a chilly, misty morning. The Goodwood pair Amber Cockram & Carol Smith played West Sussex who were represented by Alice Barnes, the County Champion, and Daisy Kane. It doesn’t often happen at big events, but a thrilling highlight of the day was an amazing hole in one on the 9th from Daisy Kane, pictured right – congratulations Daisy! West Sussex went on to win the match 2&1.
The second semi final saw Katherine Russell & Jacs Marlio of Royal Ashdown Forest against Rye pair Rosie Jenner & Ann Laughland. Ann (who is Rosie’s mum) came in at the 11th hour in place of Jane Bathurst – apparently Ann last played in the Scratch Foursomes 35 years ago, no mean feat to get to the semi finals! Royal Ashdown Forest won the match 4&3.
The sunshine came through as we experienced the warmest day of the year so far. The final was a repeat of 2011 and 2012, with an afternoon line up of:
• Final – Royal Ashdown Forest beat West Sussex 5&4
• 3rd/4th Play off – Goodwood beat Rye 5&4
