Hopefully by now you’ll have been able to enjoy some friendly rounds of golf in lovely sunshine on our wonderful golf courses.

As the lockdown restrictions are gradually relaxed it has been possible to begin planning our remaining events for this 2020 season.  However, these are still uncertain times and we remain mindful of the pressures golf clubs are under and recognise that some of our competitions may have to be adapted.

At the time of writing, your County Committee are planning to run the following competitions:

  • Jerdein – Chichester
  • Beryl Pockett – 18 holes at West Sussex – entries will be limited to 40 players
  • Veterans Championship – 18 holes at Ifield
  • Pru Riddiford Bowmaker at Royal Ashdown
  • President’s Trophy at Pyecombe
  • Glenda Ricketts at Nevill

Please be aware that the terms and conditions of these competitions will be in line with Government and England Golf guidelines in place at the time of the competition.

On a much happier note it is with great pleasure that I can announce that Caroline Hawkes from Chichester Golf Club has agreed to become County Vice Captain for 2020/21.  Caroline is currently Competition Secretary and has a wealth of knowledge concerning competitions and the new handicap system – which will certainly be very helpful to us all!  I am sure you will join me in congratulating Caroline and wishing her well for her term of office.
