Piltdown’s course was, once again, presented in immaculate condition with true and fast greens which caught out a few of the players!  This annual event is always very well supported with golfers returning year after year, this time there were 19 clubs represented and 64 competitors.  Fortunately, one player who was 6th on the reserve list, had a last minute call to play and faired rather well overall – you could say it was the “Barbara Parker” Show!

The weather was extremely kind to the players, although the afternoon was VERY hot for the foursomes competition.  Well done to everyone for making it through the day and not keeling over with the heat.

The raffle raised a sum of £260 which will go towards the Lady Captain’s charity prostrate cancer.

A huge thank you to Piltdown’s Vice Captain, Lucy Jackson and her terrific team of helpers, in particular the ball spotters who were especially welcome for those who found the heather quite a hazard.

Thanks also to Phil Bonsell for all of the correspondence and help prior and during the day.  And finally…a big thank you should also go to all the committee members who helped out during the day.
