The 2018 Sussex County Long Drive Championship was contested on Friday, Sept. 7, 2018, at the Black Bear Golf Club by golfers in four divisions, Men’s, Senior Men’s, Women’s and Senior Women’s who had participated in qualifying events since July.

In spite of overcast weather and a soft long drive course the golfers demonstrated their outstanding driving skills with 4 golfers emerging as Champions of their divisions. The long drive of the day was achieved by Duane Martel in the Men’s Division with a drive of 302 yards.

Other winners were Steve Van Dyk whose drive of 264 yards was enough to win the Senior Men’s Division, Lisa Coe who hit a drive of 223 yards to take the win in the Women’s Division and Patricia Zakur took the win in the Senior Women’s Division with a drive of 176 yards.

The winners each received a 2019 Membership to the Crystal Springs Golf Resort. The 9th Annual Sussex County Long Drive Championship is hosted by the Crystal Springs Golf Resort and coordinated by Black Bear Golf Club’s General Manager Ryan Delany and his staff.

Each golfer is given 3 golf balls to be hit into a long drive grid marked by yardage markers. To be counted the golf ball must come to rest within the grid. The drive of each golfer’s drive is measured by Black Bear’s General Manager Ryan Delaney using an electronic range finder.
