County President – Jane Covey
Jane first joined the SCLGA in 1999 becoming Competition Secretary from 2000 – 2005. As County Captain 2009-11, the Sussex team won County Match Week at East Sussex National going on to represent the South Region in the National Finals in Derbyshire. The following year under Jane’s Captaincy, the county team won County Match Week in Surrey and again progressed to the National Finals. Jane plays at Ifield GC where she’s the Junior Organiser. She’s looking forward to wearing the “yellow” jumper of Sussex with pride again and meeting lots of old and new faces on the golf course!
County Treasurer – Alison Hopson
Alison has been a member at Haywards Heath since 2010. She served on the ladies committee for 6 years, 4 years as Hon. Treasurer. She has 2 children, now both at University and this has given Alison more time to dedicate to playing and practicing her golf. Alison became a Div 1 player in 2018 and hopes to reduce her handicap further. She is very excited to become County Treasurer and looks forward to working with the County team and meeting new people as part of her role.
Secretary Div 2 – Debby Gill
Debby started playing golf 5 years ago, having previously been involved in a number of different sports, both as a participant and as an organiser. She came to golf relatively late in life but loves the challenge of playing a sport where she can still continue to improve – even in retirement! Debby plays at Mid Sussex where she manages the Div 3 team and organises trophies and awards. She has a handicap of 22 but is hoping to get into the teens – at some point!
Committee – Juanita Barnes
Juanita has been a member at East Brighton GC for the last 10 years, serving as a Board Director for the 6 years and an active member of the Ladies Committee where she has helped organise events, lunches and dinners. Prior to retirement she spent 20 years working for a London University. She now spends one day a week cooking for a Housing Association. Juanita is looking forward to being part of the SCLGA Committee.
Committee – Emilie Hunt
Emilie started playing golf in 1985 when she and her husband moved to Nigeria and their two daughters had gone to boarding school in UK. After further postings overseas they returned to the UK 20 years ago. Emilie has been a member at West Sussex since 2008 where she has captained the Div 3 team four times and served on the Club Committee.
