Sussex v SLC-SGA at Haywards Heath

IMG 0355

Another beautiful day for our Annual Match v The Sussex Lady Captains at Haywards Heath.  Captains’ Peter Ward and Nannette Meeten agreed on just two adjustment shots (being the difference between the standard scratch of white and red tees).  The pairings were carefully considered so no pair were giving away a huge amount of shots.

This clearly worked well for the ladies as they prevailed by winning 7 - 3  perhaps the intense heat got to the men?  or were they simply outplayed by a strong ladies team?

At lunch the Club Captain, Mitch Clark welcomed everybody and said the words that echoed in your head whilst on the course “you have to hit it straight at Haywards Heath and that might not be straight enough”

After a superb dinner the Captain’s exchanged gifts and Peter handed over the Joe Lee Salver.  Joe’s Daughter, Carole was invited by the ladies to play in the match and indeed played a part in their victory.

Peter had prepared three Gateaux for everyone’s enjoyment and proudly distributed a slice to one and all whilst coffee was served.
