The Sussex Ladies took on Cooden Beach Men on Sunday in our annual fixture. A very chilling easterly wind blew all day, but our foursomes practice sessions over the winter paid off as the team went 4-1 up by lunch. The afternoon singles saw fiercely contested matches with most going to the 18th, with four halved matches.
The format was scratch and a shot given when a side went 2 down, it worked really well especially towards the end when the pressure was mounting! The afternoon singles saw a thrilling 5-5 tie, but the ‘awesome foursomes’ gave us a 9-6 win for the Sussex Ladies.
The ‘Men of Cooden’ were very impressed with the ladies’ games, especially the length they hit their drives – it was suggested that next year they play off the yellow tees (we’ll have to see about that one!)
