Our Ladies Division 1 team put their experience of playing in windy conditions to good effect on Tuesday when they secured their place in the County Finals by beating Royal Ashdown Forest. Ashdown have won the title 17 times since records began back in 1910, but with winds gusting 30-40 mph at Littlehampton, our team played great golf to win in very tricky conditions. After playing ten matches this season, the team now go on to play Worthing in the Final. The Dyke were Division 1 Champions in 1981 and again in 2004 – time for the hat-trick?
The Dyke is honoured to have been chosen to host the finals of the Sussex Ladies Championships this year, but sadly our team will have to play their match on a neutral course on finals day, 28th August.
The Team was Sophie Kennard, Jill Krafft, Alison Vans Agnew, Carol Duncumb, Deborah James, Kay Grindell and Nicky Felix.
