Sussex Schools Golf Competition – 2023 Winners

Sunday 17th September and West Sussex Golf Club was the Venue for the Sussex Schools golf competition. This competition was played similar to a Grafton Morris tournament and played by four teams of six from ,  Hurstpierpoint, Brighton , Lancing and Eastbourne .

After a few late changes Hurst put the team out of Alex Fleet , Joe White , Charlie Parsons, Christian Wimshurst, Russell Ogden and Rob Huxford . The weather was looking very wet for the midday forecast so getting a strong start in the morning rounds was important and thankfully all matches were played and managed to get in and enjoy a delicious lunch before the heavens opened.

After the morning rounds the scores were Hurst 6 winning all their matches followed by Brighton 4 , Eastbourne 2 and Lancing yet to score .

We went into the afternoon rounds with the first few holes in waterproofs and after three holes it turned out lovely for the rest of the day and evening .

After the afternoon rounds Hurst managed to score 4 points winning two matches and loosing one by the finest of Margins on 18 .   Brighton 3 , Eastbourne 2 and Lancing 3 .

So after careful calculations . I am pleased to say that Hurstpierpoint came out on top again securing the win for the second year in a row.

In the overall rankings, Hurstpierpoint and Lancing are now joint leaders both holding 6 victories.

Good luck to Dan Burstow and his team heading up to Norfolk .
