Wendy Jeffery became the latest Chichester lady to score a hole in one – doing so on the 13th hole of the Cathedral course. This brings the total so far this year to seven.
On a lovely sunny day, 44 ladies in shades of pink took to the course to play in the annual charity challenge between Dot’s Dollies and The Hillbillies. It was a wonderful sight to behold and after a four ball better ball competition the Hillbillies emerged as winners.
There followed a lunch in the marquee and a total of £170 was raised for the Lady Captain’s charity.
The ladies played their annual match against Portsmouth and won. In the Courtesy Cup – the annual game against the Chichester men – the ladies narrowly lost 3.5-2.5.

Littlehampton GC captain Andy Clarke had the honour of presenting the Norfolk Trophy to near neighbours Bognor following an emphatic victory.
Played over the links course, now celebrating its 130th year, the contest comprised 12 teams from as far afield as Bramshaw in the New Forest and Woodcote Park in London and a host of clubs from Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire.
Four handicapper Andrew Field was the bedrock of a fine Bognor team score, matching the level-par 70 gross in blustery conditions with three bogeys balanced by three birdies, culminating with a swinging 35-footer holed on the testing 18th green.
All six players in the team, including Bognor club captain Sean Maginnis and lady captain Louise Colvin, each scored more than 30 Stableford points to win handsomely.
The event is named through ties with the host club’s president, His Grace The Duke of Norfolk. The team event, first played for in 2008, was the brainchild of two past captains John Taylor-Stoakes and the late Anthony Greenwood.
The veterans’ section of Selsey GC held their annual vets and friends day.
The weather was perfect, with sunshine and a light breeze, and there were 15 teams on the course which was in good condition after rain to start turning it back to green.
After the match the teams met in the clubhouse for a drink and a carvary meal before the raffle and the results.
The first three teams were separated by just three points.
First were Graham Watson (Selsey) and Rob Bridges (Chichester). Second were Ted Growns (president, Selsey GC) and Ian Cleveland (Littlehampton).
Third were Steve King (Bognor) and Richard Jarvis (Selsey).
Thanks go to Bobby Moore for his efforts in organising the day.
