A bright day with a sea breeze turned out to be good scoring conditions at East Brighton Golf Club for Sussex Golf Captains Member’s Invitation where Captains invite a guest to play in a Better Ball Stableford.
Over 30 clubs represented and were competing The Arthur Holder Trophy.
The winners with an impressive 47 points were Kevin Heanen from West Hove and his guest Karl Nilchibar from East Sussex National.
Second were the Dale Hill pairing of Richard Bevan and Mick Ray with 46 points.
Third were Gary Halewood and Tony Scofield both from East Brighton with 44 points. They beat Nigel Powell and Andrew Peate from Cottesmore also with 44 on count back (Back 6)
There were two other pairs with 44 points who just lost out on count back.
Nearest The Pin on the 7th was won by Martin Jones of Haywards Heath, Guest of the SGC Captain. On the 16th by Glen Williamson from Reigate Hill guest (and son-in-law) of David Tilley from Cowdray Park.
President, Ian Wood manned the registration desk and checked cards allowing Hon Sec, Mark Terry to bring along his own guest and enjoy the day and thanks to Joe (no breakfast) Angella who acted as starter.
The food was excellently presented by Circa Events (East Brighton’s new-to-us caterers) and as always thanks must go to Rebecca Prout, General Manager EBGC, Professional Adrian Milligan and East Brighton’s Peter Baker.
