The Piltdown golf championship for the Mann Scratch Cup this year went to the oldest winner yet. The particularly punishing rough at the moment was cited as the reason for the high scores. Dennis Tyson, 65, won with rounds of 81 and 78.

The SCLGA Division A meeting was hosted by Piltdown and drew 60 entrants. Picking up trophies were Rosie Chisholm-Hill & Jane Rodgers (Ifield), Joy Cobban (Willingdon), Kim Yates (Goodwood) and scratch prize to Ann Howard (Copthorne).-
