Sussex County Ladies Golf Association held their Interclub Championship Finals on Friday (28th August).
The Finals are the culmination of six months competition for golfers of all handicaps representing over forty Sussex clubs. Crowborough Beacon won Group C on game points going on to compete in three rounds of knock-out matches.
The final between Crowborough Beacon and Chichester played at Dyke Golf Club was very close, with the last match going down the 19th hole to secure victory 4-3 for the Crowborough team.
The winning team was Ruby Wooley, Mandy Monk, Diana Sheppard, Barbro Furneaux, Ezzie Massey, Sylvia Billcliff and Linds Weatherley pictured with Dorothy Turton Team Captain, County President Mel Boyse and County Vice Captain Sandra Holman (seated).
The winners of Division 1 were last year’s losing finalists Worthing. The Division 2 final saw Haywards Heath retain the title beating West Sussex, winning for the 8th time in the event’s 92 year history. In its seventh year, Division 4 is played in teams of five playing off handicap rather than scratch. 2015 saw newcomers West Hove battle it out against Lewes to secure the title.
The draw for the 2016 Championships will be announced at the Sussex Ladies AGM in November.

The Crowborough Beacon Golf Club received good news recently when Golf World announced that the Club had retained its ranking of the 68th best course in England.
Being one of the top ranked courses meant that the club some time ago received an invitation to host the British Senior’s Home International Championship. This tournament will be held between the 14th to the 17th September. It involves a practice day followed by three days of championship match play golf between the best Senior Amateur golfers from the four Home Nations. The tournament is the most prestigious event the club has ever hosted, carrying full international status and recognition.
