This year Sussex are the host county of the 2021 County Week and it is held from 21 to 23 June.
County Week is an annual match between the womens 1st teams of Kent, Surrey, Sussex, Hampshire and Middlesex.
Monday 21 June - Very early start for our first match v Surrey. As kind as the weather was on Sunday for the practice, how nasty it was today. Heavy rain and strong winds with the rain stopping on the back 9, which we hoped, as forecast, would continue in the afternoon. But not so.
Both our 2 foursomes (Nicole Amos & Ellena Slater and Ellie Burdis & Liv Heard) battled hard and only narrowly missed winning their matches. Nicola Smith, our County Champion, fought hard, but her opponent had a flying start and it was difficult to come back from that. Millie Thompson, our number 2 single was 2 down after 11 and from then on showed some marvellous golf to win 1 up. Our 3rd single, Sharna Dutrieux, one of our most experienced players never looked back and had a great win. Unfortunately, the team lost 3-2.
Our second match v Sussex started in the most awful heavy rain and strong winds. The girls were very much up for it and showed some good golf in those conditions. However, the greens had already started to flood and after 5 holes play was abandoned for the day.
The afternoon round will be scrapped all together and only 3 instead of 4 matches will count.
Tomorrow we will again have an early start and Hampshire are our opponents in the morning and Middlesex in the afternoon.

Practice round at Worthing on Saturday 5 June
We have a very strong and young, but experienced team and look forward to this year’s matches.
This year sees the new format for the first time; 2 foursomes (played first) and 3 singles each over the same 18 holes, to be played on the same morning or afternoon. In previous years it was played over 5 days when each match was played in 1 day with 3 foursomes in the morning and 6 singles in the afternoon. Each county had 1 rest day.
Kent’s schedule is as follows:
Spectators are welcome and Sussex advice is as follows:
The organising committee asks all spectators to be respectful of all Government and England Golf Covid guidelines. An updated notice will be displayed in the clubhouse and reminders will be given to team officials. To minimise the risk of the event having to be abandoned because of one positive covid test, spectators should avoid any close contact with players or officials.
