With another 10mm of rain overnight, a wet course was markedly wetter.  Both dams were full to overflowing and there was casual water on almost every fairway.  The long hitters had a considerable advantage  as almost every shot landed and stopped within a metre, good distance in the air was vital.  Despite the challenging course conditions the weather was far more benign.  The sky was generally clear, the sun shone through and the northerly wind rarely effected shots.  The John Laing Shield Quarter Finals were generally tight affairs, especially over the front nine,  one match came down to the final hole.  The 4BBB Par competition was also close with many players having to chip close or sink lengthy putts to square a hole.  On a cool, sunny day the results were;

4BBB Par; Matt Hoyt (25)/Chris Burkett (25) – +3 from Andrew Clement (9)/Mitch Atlas (9) – Sq
