With over 80 mm of rain in the ground and a spot of irrigation here and there the course was in top nick.  Very recent Verti-draining of the greens saw a few rough spots but all greens were certainly much softer and responded will to good high iron and wedge approach shots.  The day was almost perfect for golf, clear, sunny and with intermittent winds from the south.  Good golf was the order of the day and many players were able to rack up consecutive pars or better but the challenge of keeping it going saw many players fall away.  There were only three players in with a chance as they headed up the final hole and an excellent par made all the difference.  On a wonderful day to be out on the park the results were;

Winner; Hugh Drummond (21) – 40 pts C/B from John Laing (32) with Mick Nicholls Jnr (20) – 39 pts

NTPs; 1st – Mick Nicholls Jnr
