Type of course? Downland.

Pleasant staff? It was a competition organised by the women’s section, so we didn’t deal with the staff.

Best hole? The 18th because it’s a great risk/reward par 5. The temptation to try and get on the green in 2 is irresistible, but it is well protected and it’s hard to get the ball to stick on the green. Mine didn’t and ended up down the bank at the back.

Après golf? A decent jacket potato in the attractive bar.

Nice round? This was a medal round for the South Downs Trophy in gale force winds. I had lovely playing partners from Pyecombe and West Hove, I played well and came in with a decent score. Challenging, but very satisfying.

Special memory? My longest drive ever on the 4th (downhill and with a mighty wind at my back): 300 yards. Also, when our last team member came in with the best score of the day and we realised this might move us from second to first place.

Must play again? Yes. It’s a great, varied course with some fantastic holes and absolutely amazing views. I couldn’t take any photos as this was a competition, but the light, the sea, Brighton, the Downs, everything is magnificent.
