The Mid Sussex League (MSL) is a competition played between five clubs; Haywards Heath, Copthorne, Ifield, Worthing and Pyecombe. Matches are great fun and open to all full 7-day members (see 'representative teams'), who have an official handicap index of 24.0 or less. Clubs play against each other once a year in a summer league with matches being played home and away on the same day followed by a good lunch!! As well as these matches the League also holds Summer and Winter finals days (individual and team event) and the Friendship Bowl (invitation to the Ladies) which are open to all who have played in any of the matches throughout the year. Each club takes it in turns to host these events. Pyecombe also have an agreement with these clubs to enable members to play on their courses at a reduced green fee or even free in some cases!
The Pyecombe Bucks play in the Sussex InterClub League, which is a competitive but less formal league for players with a minimum Handicap Index of 15.5 and a maximum of 36. The season is preceded by an internal Pyecombe fixture, the Bucks Tankard, normally at the end of February. There is also an annual challenge match between the Bucks and a Pyecombe Captain's Team.
The League consists of 7 Clubs, and each Club is played home and away, normally preceded by breakfast, or a brunch. This is a fantastic opportunity to play competitive Matchplay golf at some really good Sussex courses for a very reasonable match fee of around £12. The format is teams of 12 a side, playing in 6 pairs, Fourball, Better Ball. The other Clubs in the League are, Ham Manor, West Hove, The Dyke, East Brighton, Ifield and Cottesmore. Pyecombe most recently won the League in 2018. Additionally there is an InterClub Trophy fixture, mid-summer, when all 7 teams participate against each other. Results & Fixtures.
