DON’T FORGET THIS MEETING IS ON THURSDAY
Situated in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding beauty, the Golf Course offers stunning views across the Sussex Weald and is a haven for wildlife. James Braid, the iconic golf architect, helped shape the course which was originally sculptured in 1894. Since that time, more land has been obtained providing additional length and opportunities to redesign the layout of the course. Now, with the course measuring 6278 yards off the White tees, 5955 yards off the Yellow and 5559 yards off the Red tees, it is a good test of golf for all levels of ability. Undulating fairways, smallish greens and challenging dog legs, give ample opportunity to play most types of shots and to use most clubs in the bag.
We have a field of 18 players – not ideal – we really needed one or two more so we could have 8 pairs competing.
Venue: Pyecombe Golf Club, Clayton Hill, Pyecombe BN45 7FF
Time: 10:00 for 11:00 first tee off
Pro Shop: 01273 845372
Format: Tea/coffee + bacon rolls on arrival, 18-hole pairs Stableford competition for the Mad March Jugs, one course meal to finish
Dress For Meal: Smart Casual
The Mad March Jugs competition is a pairs Stableford competition played with a yellow ball counting double. The yellow ball is alternated between players on each hole with the “owner” able to score double points with it.
For the pairs competition the combined stableford score on each hole will count. NB: Player 1 has been nominated to have the yellow ball on the first hole scores 1 stableford point (the ball is not lost) so that players score doubles to 2 points. Their partner plays a blinder and gets 3 points with their normal chosen ball, so just their single score counts on that hole. The team score would be 5 points on that hole. I hope that is clear if not ask!!
