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

The course is in fantastic condition, with stunning views and rather tasty food, what's not to like?
