Rain on Friday had made the greens too slippery to cut so long, wet fairways and furry greens, just what the doctor ordered for a pleasant round of golf. Despite the conditions the afternoon was sunny with only occasional bursts of wind form the NW.  Again, there was no run and groups had to watch carefully or risk spending a deal of time looking for plugged balls.  The soft fairways sucked the life out the legs of all players and, at the end of the day, everyone was relieved to be heading up the 18th.  On a cool, sunny afternoon the results were;

Winner; Ryan Davies (24) – 37pts from Mitchell Clement (10) – 36pts, Davie Kenney (22) – 34pts  & Mal Mottram (8) – 33pts
