The Sussex County 1st Team versus 2nd Team match was played at Cowdray Golf on Sunday. This Four Ball Better Ball match is always played in the best of spirits with the 1st Team inevitably giving shots to the 2nd Team!
After an energy boosting round of sandwiches the teams teed off in glorious warm sunshine. The matches were close; but the 1st Team managed to win the day and retain the trophy. Some amazing shots were witnessed by the spectators (all two of us!); lengthy putts, bunker shots holed, pitching in from over 100 yards – these were all shots that helped make the day a memorable one.
We said thanks and goodbye to Tessa Stockwell for whom it was the last match as 2nd Team Manager. Thanks also to Cowdray Golf for hosting this match, the course was in beautiful condition even though the greens were very tricky. Everyone enjoyed the golf and the tropical October weather.
Team colours were presented to two of the players. Heather Tidy received her 1st team colours from Ann Carnegie and Sian Southerton received her 2nd team colours from Tessa Stockwell. Congratulations to both ladies – keep playing sensational golf!
