All players and county officials managed to get to Ifield in time, despite several traffic accidents in the area and road blockages. The first match between Piltdown and Copthorne started in overcast conditions, however, by the time the last match teed off it was sunny with a light breeze.
The winning teams to play in the Semi-finals on 9th August are:
- Piltdown v Chichester
- Slinfold v West Sussex
The Mid-Sussex v Slinfold match was very tight with the first 6 games level at 3 – 3. When the final match finished with a half, the pair had to play an extra hole which ended on the 19th with Slinfold taking the match in what had been a very close game. Commiserations to the losing team of Mid-Sussex.
Our thanks to all at Ifield for their hospitality – the greenkeepers, the caterers, the ball spotters, all in the pro shop and in particular Jane Covey and Jon Earl, Director of Golf. Thanks also to the County Committee members who helped run the event.
Whether a winner or not, many ladies enjoyed some retail therapy especially from the two rails of bargains outside the pro shop!!
