Texas Ambrose is a slight variation on normal Ambrose. While the best drive is aways chosen, (subject to each player taking the requisite number of drives), team members then hole out playing their own ball.  The best two scores are recorded for the team score.  Play began under clear skies with a rapidly rising temperature and no wind.  All players struggled with the extreme humidity for the first nine holes however a slight SW wind arrived later in the day cooling everyone down.  After the extreme heat late in the week the fairways had dried considerably and golfers got excellent value for well struck drives.  The greens were in excellent condition, apart for the Little Corella damage, and generally putted quite fast and very true.  The format allowed many players to record excellent scores on numerous holes and saw the lowest team score of 90 pts.  On a still, hot day the results were;

Winners; Les Gaunt, Pam Drummond, Bob McLennan & Hugh Drummond – 109 pts from Bruce Robb, Mick Nicholls Snr, Wayne Robb & Mal Mottram – 105 pts & Scott Williams, John Freestone, George Crow & Ron Walker – 105 pts

Individual scores; Women – Pam Drummond – 55 pts. Men – Mick Nicholls Snr – 53 pts

NTPs; 1st Mick Nicholls Jnr, 15th – Ron Walker & 16th Mick Nicholls Jnr
