Wiltshire v Sussex


On to the second match of our Tour of the West Country as we take on Wiltshire Captains at Wrag Barn. Will we continue our excellent form? Will last night's beer consumption improve our performance? I can't wait to find out, can you? Read the match report here

Somerset v Sussex

And so the tour of te West Country begins.  Following a very long drive, we pitched up at Wells GC, home of the baby-eating Bishop of Bath and Wells to take on Somerset Captains. How did we do? Who pulled the r out of the h? and was there any beer involved? These questions and more are answered here

Essex v Sussex

After last year's washout at Dale Hill we travelled to Upminster Golf Club to take on the Essex Barrow Boys. Read the report here

Mark Terry's Patron's Day

Mark Terry presenting the winners, Frank Horner (86) and Barry Chapman with their trophies. 

We rocked up to Crowborough Beacon for Patron's Day. The course is in stunning condition; it looks beautiful. The heather, as you would expect, is a test. This is one of Sussex's most demanding courses but our winners showed that if you kept the ball straight and applied a suitable amount of linament, you could score well. 


Frank Horner (86) and Barry Chapman with 45 points


Trevor Pigram and Mick Stacey with 43 points


Keith Hayward and John Macaulay with 43 points


Mark Dunn and Santa Wilkins with 43 points

Up next. the Bristow Tankards at Dale Hill. 


Sussex v Kent


With the wind blowing, the sun shining and Cooden Beach in great condition what more could our merry band of golfers want? Well, a victory against Kent is well overdue. Last year, they took us to Northern France before thrashing us 7 1/2 to 2/12. How would we fare this time? Read all about it here. 

Surrey v Sussex

At Bramley Golf Club. 

Can Sussex maintain their unbeaten run against the stout burghers of Surrey, who will crumble? get turned over? Find out what happened in the match report, here

Brian Street's President's Day

Our President and host presenting the Presidents Salver to Trevor Pigram from Cottesmore. Trevor notched up a convincing win with 43 points, five points clear of Peter Snook and Des Malcolm, who were only separated by countback. We'd also like to thank everyone at Cowdray Park for everything they did to make this such a memorable day. The course is in fantastic condition, with stunning views and rather tasty food, what's not to like? 

Cambridgeshire v Sussexshire

As no one thought to bring a camera to Cambridge, here is a picture of the Camsex Trophy. You can read the match report here

Sussex v Bedfordshire

Following the embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Lady Captains, can Sussex Golf Captains return to winning ways? Would they put their guests to bed? Read the match report, here.

Sussex v Dorset

Sussex Golf Captains entertained Dorset Golf Captains at Pyecombe GC. Sussex ran out 6 - 2 winners. 

Next up Hampshire at Eastbourne Downs. 

Our golfing season is off and running. Despite the best efforts of the rain gods, we were able to kick off our competitions in style with our Spring Meeting at Nevill Golf Club. 

Congratulations to the winners, Guy Kent and Trevor Haegar, who scored 43 points and won on countback from second-placed Nigel Powell and Trevor Pigram, with Mitch Clark and Sean Nolan coming in third. Countback was all that separated the first three places.  

Next up is the Spring Mixed at Highwoods Golf Club. 

The Sussex Golf Captains, founded in 1964, are a non-profit making organisation for Past and Present Club Captains of Sussex Golf Clubs.

We organise an extensive program of fixtures and matches for our members to enjoy and promote friendship to all.  By doing so, we look to support Sussex Golf Clubs and help to grow the greatest game ever invented.

Last year we returned over £60,000 directly to Sussex Golf Clubs for hosting our events. This doesn't include the incidentals: drinks, buggy hire, ball sweeps and pro's shop spending.  

We are proud to maintain the respect and etiquette the great game of golf richly deserves.
