The Bristow Tankards & Annual Dinner at East Sussex National

IMG 0393

A damp misty morning greeted those arriving at East Sussex National but it soon cleared turning into a warm Autumnal day.

The Bristow Tankards played for before our Annual Dinner was a shotgun start on the ESN’s west course.  58 pairs off 18 tees is about as many golfers as you can get on a course but it all flowed smoothly and some fine scores were returned.

The winners with 47 points were David Ball & Peter Billcliff from Crowbororugh Beacon Golf Club.  2 over gross better ball with a zero on the 10th secured the prize - 24 out, 23 back.

Second were  Dave Bell and his guest Brian Field from Willingdon with 45 points and third from Worthing were Ian Potter and Kieran Laverty with 44 points.

Our VIP guests were playing a competition on the East Course and the winners were Nigel Mobs and Geoff Croft the Captain and Secretary from The Dorset Golf Captains with 42 points.

The toast to the Sussex Captains was made my Mark Fendt, a Past Captain of the London Captains who was called in at short notice as the London Captain advertised on the menu was called away on business.

Captain, Peter Ward responded with anecdotes from the year and

after dinner entertainment was provided by the highly amusing comedian, Ian Richards.
