The weather has hampered play at Chichester recently, with course being closed twice and games being played over a shortened course on a few occasions.

Hopefully a drier period will allow members to play more regularly.

The ladies’ section have managed some competitions.

COWDRAY PARK

Morethan 40 Cowdray ladies played in the Dovetail competition on a sunny but cool day.

The competition is played in pairs and each player must score on nine holes only. Whose score is put down is to be decided after playing the hole but before teeing off the next hole.

The best five pairs were as follows: 1 Catherine Staples and Solveig Burton 41pts; 2 Jo Fife and Vicky Lush 38; 3 Ann Robertson and Sue Smith 36; 4 Pat White and Pauline Lamb 35; 5 Rosie Jarratt and Georgie Miller 34 (on countback).
