Willingdon Ladies win County Div 4 Final
Sussex County Ladies Golf Association (SCLGA) runs inter-club matchplay competitions Divisions 1-4). Divisions 1-3 are for different handicap levels with matches played off scratch. Division 4, for teams of 5 players of any handicap, is handicap matchplay. This means that a player may have to give a number of shots to their opponent, and that was the case for Willingdon Ladies in the final against Crowborough at Cowdray Golf.
In the words of the SCLGA website, the Div 4 final was "a real cliffhanger" with one match decided on the 19th and another on the 20th hole. In the end, Willingdon emerged 4-1 winners. The victory was even more impressive as this was the first year that Willingdon has had a team in Div 4.
The winning team (below) was Meg Reed, Jane Jones (Capt), Rowena Bromwich, Margaret Heald and Jean Uden.

Many thanks to Luke Turner, our Course Manager, Brian Watkinson, Ian Cooke and David Commins for providing a selection of photos of our course.
One (from Brian) will, we hope, not be seen this year. Others from (Luke) give an idea of what goes on at Willingdon while most of us are still asleep. Finally, thanks to Luke and David for the photos that show Willingdon in all its glory.
