Sussex Martlets v Cooden Beach GC
As was usually the case for this match, the weather was perfect; sun and a South Westerly breeze.
Match 1 saw Cooden’s Russ Johnson back to his best pitching skills. Mike Stewart and Steve Churchward could not match that and lost 4 & 3.
Match 2 saw another Cooden member chipping ‘out of his skin’. Adrian and Michael Phillipps could not match them and lost 4 & 3
Match 3 saw Robert Reed and Simon Hodgkinson coming in as winners
Match 4 saw new Martlet member Ronnie Schrevel, and Peter Scaramanga losing to the locals, having given up 8 shots to their opponents
Match 5 saw our two low handicappers Allan Gormey and Simon Pook again giving up 8 shots to the locals but managing another win for the Martlets.
The final match saw Ham Whitty and Mark Stevenson losing valiantly in another match where we were giving away 8 shots.
Net result. A loss by 4 – 2.
Lunch was a great success, with Cooden serving lunch in the lounge so we could watch the exciting end of the Ryder Cup.
