A strong field, men and women, teed off to contest the April Medal.  The day was cool and overcast and the fairways and greens were still very soft from the recent rains.  The cool air and soft fairways saw only the best drivers leave themselves with reasonable approach shots; most others faced far longer shots to the greens.  The greens still showed some unevenness courtesy of the damage done but the Little Corellas but they are rapidly returning to their best.  As the round progressed the clouds lifted and the sun came out making for a very pleasant back nine.  A number of players were “right in it” until one or two disastrous holes saw them fall out of contention.  In the end it was a battle between two former clubs champions.  The day’s results were;

Men’s Winner & April Medalist; Les Gaunt – 75/5/70 from Andrew Clement – 82/11/71 & Mick Nicholls Jnr – 95/22/73

Women’s Winner & April Medalist; Kath Jekabsons – 111/25/86

NTPs; 1st – Jim Patton, 15th – Andrew Laing
