Despite almost 60mm of rain the course was in good condition with casual water on one green and a few fairways.  The small but enthusiastic field faced gusting westerly winds and steady drizzle towards the end of the round.  The softer fairways resulted in longer approach shots and the damp greens required much firmer putting than usual.  While the conditions really tested the players the 4BBB Stroke format allowed a number of teams to play below average golf on some holes yet still salvage a good score.  Perhaps the highlight of the round was a tremendous 8 iron into the gusting wind by Jim Patton on the 147m, par 3 15th.  Jim dropped the ball about 30 cm from the cup, took the birdie and picked up the $100 for inside the ring.  So, on a cold, windy and damp day the results were;

Winners; John Laing/Andrew Laing – 91/25.5/65.5 from Dean Jones/John Freestone – 78/12/66 & Anthony Lakey/Jim Patton – 87/20.5/66.5
