This year’s golf day took place at East Brighton Golf Club on, possibly, the best day of the year! The weather was fantastic and the course provided some absolutely stunning views of over Brighton, the Downs, and the south coast. The hilly course was tough on the legs, but very forgiving on the scorecard as lots of teams came in well under par.
The team event was won by Paul Moore and his team. Paul has entered this event every year and has come close to winning in the past, but this year, in the exciting Texas Scramble format, his team were firing on all cylinders and came in with an impressive gross score of 12 under par. With their handicap deducted, they ended up with an event-winning score of 53.6.
Jake in Y9, playing with his dad and their two guests Jo and Tom, won second place. After their handicap was deducted, they scored 54.7, just pipping Alfie and Rick Simpson, last year’s winners, who scored 54.8.
The individual prizes were won by, Jamie Burchell – Junior Longest Drive, Rick Simpson – Senior Longest Drive, Mr Ritchie – Senior Nearest the Pin and James O’Brien – Junior Longest Drive.
