Hot and Sunny!

A perfect day for golf for the 52 pairs playing in the rescheduled Spring Meeting at The Nevill Golf Club.

The competition was rescheduled from April after a long wet winter took its toll on the course making it unplayable back then.  Hard to imagine those conditions on a day like today.

The ever evolving start sheet had changed considerably since the April date because of a clash with the Cyril Blake County Knockout 4th round.

However, those who played enjoyed the Nevill in first class condition with lighting quick greens.  So it was only to be expected that a local pair would feature as winners.

Club Captain, Andrew Newman and his partner Nigel Wates were the first out and returned a score of 43 points which would stay top of the leaderboard all day.

Second with 41 points were Mike Rham & Arthur Nicholls from Willingdon.  Their back 9 of 23 beat the third place pairing of David Schwartz and Colin Kemp of Pyecombe with 20 on the back 9.

Fourth were John Benoy and Richard Wilson of The Nevill with 40 points and fifth place went to Peter Billcliff and Ed Viney of Crowborough Beacon with 39 points.

Thanks went to starters: Gordon Clarke and Ian Jaggard.
