With heavy rain predicted for mid afternoon the club invoked the “Extreme Weather” policy and play began at 9.30am.  This round was also a “Golf Fore A Cause” round, double the usual competition fee with half going to the Drummond Golf cancer research fund.  Conditions were generally excellent, reasonably still, good cover on almost all fairways and the greens fast and true.  Towards the end of the round a strong westerly wind blew up causing a few problems for all golfers.  The club’s call for an early start proved correct with just about everyone making it into the rooms before the rain began to fall.  On a cool, overcast morning and afternoon the results were;

Winner; Mick Squire (4) – 38 pts C/B Josh Squire (41) from Rowan Stott (17) -37 pts & Chris Manktelow (34) – 36 pts

NTPs; 1st – Robert Bretherton & 15th – Michael Nicholls Jnr
