With twenty four teams entering this fun event, it turned into a Rumble only for the hardy (or foolhardy?)! This year’s Spring Rumble was played at Mid Sussex on Thursday in strong winds and driving rain. The event was shortened to 16 holes because of the conditions, with some teams deciding to head for the club house early!

One of the highlights of the day was Jan Cackett of Cooden Beach getting a hole in one at the 5th hole, for which she received a bottle of bubbly donated by Helen McRobert of Seaford. Congratulations Jan, it must have been an expensive round!


With prizes presented by Mel Boyse, County President, the winners of the event were a team from West Chiltington, Jan White, Fiona Sapsworth, Liz MacGregor with 65 points.
