East Brighton - Order of Play – February 2020

After the severe wind and rain of last weekend it looks like Friday will be dry, mild but a bit breezy down on the Sussex coast which is a hot spot for the CoronaVirus in the UK! The good news is that one important feature of the course is the superb drainage that it has as it is built on chalk.  This golf course is 127 years old so the modern day athletic and lean built golfers such as Tippett & Mann with their modern equipment should score very well !! The course is a 6,346 yards par 72 and presents a genuine challenge for golfers of all handicaps in particular if the wind gets up when we play on Friday. That said the generous fairways with no impossible carries virtually guarantee an enjoyable round.
