Nearly 60 members of Chichester Golf Club's ladies' section enjoyed a splendid lunch where the hampers made from donations were raffled and raised more than £400 for the Lady Captain’s charity.

A Charity game was played on the jungle course which scooped more funds.

COWDRAY PARK

Cowdray Seniors held their annual meeting and outgoing captain Mark Kelly could reflect on an extremely successful and enjoyable year both on and off the course and was widely congratulated and thanked by members.

Kelly asked Di Levantine from his nominated charity The Sussex Snowdrop Trust to accept a cheque for a whopping £7,755.

The seniors go from strength to strength with ten new members, making a total of more than 150 for 2019.

Terry Adsett was voted in as the new captain and Jon Fife was elected as his vice-captain. Kelly presented Adsett with his captain’s sweater. His chosen charity is Midhurst Macmillan Nurses, a unit that serves West Sussex, Surrey and Hampshire. Jo Stuttaford from the local McMillan office gave a brief introduction to the unit.

After the meeting there was a fun nine-hole Stableford. With forecast heavy rain and already damp conditions, there was a depleted field with prizes for the top four positions. Luckily the rain held off for most of the morning.

Winner on countback with 19 points was Justin Chuter. Second was new captain Adsett. Third, again on countback, with 17 points was new vice-captain Fife and fourth was Brian Carpenter, also with 17.
