We once again were blessed by perfect weather, a golf course that was in excellent conditions, especially the greens, wonderful food and outstanding Harvey’s bitter.
The 40 hardy players were all present and correct at 7.30am, which was amazing as the now traditional pre-golf dinner the night before was enjoyed to the full!
After a settling traditional golfers fare of bacon roll and coffee the teams of four went off to break the Texas Scramble record on the Lake course that was set in 2008 of 5 under for 9 holes.
Indeed the score was matched, but not broken by the Celtic tigers consisting of Dougie Drummond, Robert Maxwell, Conor McNally and Mick Fardell, a very well done to them.
The afternoon saw us off two tees boxes, playing the River and Valley courses. The full handicap Stableford competition produced some very good scores ranging from high twenties, many in the thirties but the winner playing off a handicap of 12 was once again Dougie Drummond , who apart from receiving the very distinguished trophy won a round for 4 at Wentworth kindly sponsored by 3M UK Plc.
During the match the traditional longest drive competition was won by Dan Crisp with an amazing 350 yard drive, he was presented with a signed Sussex County Cricket club bat by the leg-end Tony Cottey.
Nearest the pin was won by Ian Davies Marketing Director of SCCC who was delighted to win a genuine World Cup Jabulani soccer ball kindly sponsored by tesa UK Ltd.
