CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP WINS FOR ASH REES & AMANDA HILTON
There was an exciting finish to the Club Championship with 3 players tied for the lead playing the 17th hole. Andy Larkin produced a brilliant birdie 3 on the 18th to post +1 for the tournament and then had to wait and see if his total would stand up.
Overnight leader Steve Graham bogeyed the 17th to drop a shot behind, but Ashley Rees birdie to stand at +1, both players narrowly missed their birdies on 18, so it was into extra holes between Ash Rees & Andy Larkin.
Ash Rees held his nerve to hole an 8ft putt to save par on the 1st extra hole to extend the play-off. The Par 5 10th often settles play-offs, today was no exception, when Andy Larkin took on the second shot over water, but failed to make the required contact resulting in a penalty shot allowing Ash to make a solid par for the championship.
Karl Nilchibar took the Silver Cup for the best nett score with a total of 141, closely followed by Andy Larkin & Marcus Opoku in joint second on 143.
Amanda Hilton won her first East Sussex National Club Champion by 5 shots with rounds of 77-85 for a 162 total to beat defending Champion Sue Davis by 5 shots..
Jane Saunders won the Silver Vase with rounds of 76-69 145 total to pip Corrina Smith by 2 shots.
John & Liz Ditchburn lead the 2019 Breakfast League after round 9
The holders look set to defend their trophy as they go into the last round with a 6 point lead. Jane Saunders & Phillip Boghurst need to score 48pts in round 10 to tie the lead, subject to what Liz & John score. Both pairs need to score more than 42pts to add to their totals.
In 3rd place are former champions, Colin and Debbie Ash, but they are too far back.
The trophy will be presented at the luncheon on Sunday 4th November, please enter your names on the mixed notice board, Sunday Carvery is £18.95
Gents Chairman’s Ladder 2018/19: Tom Foreman wins ladder final on the 21st hole
Former Professional, Tom Foreman, defeated Mark O’Hara on the 21st hole in a thrilling final. Foreman was 1up on the 18th, but a brilliant birdie by O’Hara sent the match into extra holes. It looked like O’Hara had the match won on the 1st extra hole, but a 20ft par saving putt by Foreman sent the match up the second extra hole.
Tom’s brilliant shot game saved him again when a parachute style pitch resulted in a conceded birdie. O’Hara, with one-hand on the trophy, already made his birdie.
The match finally ended on the 3rd extra when O’Hara found the water from his tee shot, leaving Foreman with two putts to win the trophy. A worthy winner. Tom commented afterwards, “We had a great game and Mark played really well. We did ask could the trophy be shared as neither deserved to lose, although I am delighted to have won!”
Trophies and prizes were presented by Club owner, Michael Hunt, who joined the 60 members for dinner.
O’Hara won the Stableford competition with 35 points in gale force wind conditions. Sterling Wakefield & Rob Thompson were 2nd on 33 points.
Mark Earley won the league and Mike Ormiston won the trophy for the first time. Despite a last day defeat, Mark had secured sufficient points last week to just pip Simon Burton for the title.
There were only two players who made 2’s, paying £282.50 each, Colin Oliver & Jordi Southgate.
Nearest the pins were 1st in 2 shots, Ashley Rees, 3rd Jordi Southagate, 7th Scott Ridgers, 13th Ian Pagan, 15th in 2 shots Simon Burton & 16th Dean Plant, all won two sleeves of balls and cash prizes.

Ladies Chairman’s Ladder 2018/19: Sue Hollands wins her first major trophy
Sue Hollands won the prestigious Ladies Ladder Trophy after beating Debbie Ash on the last green. All square on the last, Sue holed a tricky 4ft putt to capture her first major event at the Club.
A delighted Sue paid tribute to Debbie Ash, “We had a fantastic game, which was in the balance until the final putt. Debbie is a great sport and was genuinely pleased for my success.” Debbie was relegated to 3rd spot as Alicia Phillips leapfrogged her into 2nd place.
The league was equally as close as Judith Dingle trailed by a point going into today’s matches but won her match against Maureen Bundy to overtake Amanda Hilton on the last day, winning by a point.
