A Bursars Golf Day took place last week at the East Sussex National Gold Club. Organised and presented by S&C Slatter, some twenty-five Bursars from the independent schools sector played the challenging West Course, in an event which was scheduled to coincide with the ISBA Annual Conference in Brighton of which S&C Slatter was a sponsor.
As a prelude to the golf, Roedean School very kindly invited everyone to take breakfast at the school, including the opportunity to see their outstanding new range of external sports facilities – constructed by S&C Slatter.
The picturesque setting of ESNC was enhanced by warm, sunny weather and supported by the excellent facilities provided by one of the South’s premier leisure venues. This was all very much appreciated by the guests.
‘It was such an enjoyable occasion and very well organised, meaning the tone of the day was spot on and I hope this will be an annual event.’ Richard Poffley, Roedean School.
‘I was great fun. I know the amount of effort that goes into arranging such an event and it really is much appreciated.’ Paddy Jackman, Ardingly College.
After play, dinner was taken in the Club’s Hunningtons Restaurant and everyone took the opportunity to relax and take in the fabulous views of the Sussex countryside. This was also the occasion to present the competition prizes.
S&C Slatter is grateful to Richard Poffley, Roedean School, and Mark Suddaby, Millfield School, for their invaluable assistance in preparing the day, and Chris Marriott for co-ordinating team selection, tee timings, scoring and lots more.
