East Brighton results

Fifteen of our bravest attended the February fixture at East Brighton on a cold and very damp day on the South Coast.  The turnout was excellent, well done guys – with the average score for the day being a very respectable 31.73 points.

The air sea rescue was put on standby mid-afternoon when the final two teams went missing for 45 mins, however we counted them out and we counted them all back with everyone eventually returning safe and sound!

Only four birdies were achieved on the day with Malc S and Brian D getting two’s on the par 3 4th and Clive B and Tips getting fours on the par 5 18th.

Four competitions were competed for on the day as follows:-
