The forecast for the day, just 10 hours before the event showed thundery heavy showers all morning which many would have read and thought twice about playing in this popular Spring Mixed event. However, after a chilly overcast start the storms bypassed Bexhill-on-Sea leaving a bright breezy day.
The winners with an impressive 40 points were the local pairing of Andy Lamb and Jackie Thomson. Both from Highwoods and no doubt knew the course well. Second place also from Highwoods were Mark Dunn and Pat Reid with 38 points (20 back 9) They pipped Nigel & Junko Wates from The Nevill who also had 38 points with 18 on the back 9.
Fourth were Mitch Clark & Christine Kenrohan from Haywards Heath Golf Club with 37 points.
Nearest the pin for the ladies on the 7th went to Angela Robinson from Muswell Hill and on the 10th Kay Grindell from The Dyke.
For the men it was Peter Rodger from West Hove on the 5th and Mark Dunn of Highwoods on the 16th.
Club Captain, Ali Munro welcomed everybody after a superb lunch and thanks went to the Starters, Fred Laing and Brian Saunders, The Bar & Waiting staff who all worked exceptionally hard and to Highwoods GC for hosting this busy event.
