Another strong field teed up for the club’s Par round and 5he final of the John Laing Shield.  Play began on a sunny afternoon, the whole course was in good nick meaning players could easily find their ball if they strayed into the rough. There was a little southerly wind  but it rarely effected play.  While there was good cover on most fairways the recent heat and lack of rain saw all players get good value for well struck drives.  The surrounds were in almost perfect condition; allowing approach shots to bounce up onto the greens or allowing putting from reasonably well of the green.  The final of the John Laing Shield was another tight affair again coming down to the 18th.  On a beautiful summer’s afternoon the results were;

Winner; Scott Williams (17) +7 from Mick Nicholls Jnr (17) +4, Keith Hocking (29) +1 & Jim Patton (20) Sq

NTPs; 1st Mal Mottram, 15th – Anthony Lakey & 16th – Keith Hocking
