There was a steady westerly wind blowing as players headed to the tee for the 48 Algie Mitchell Shield.  The dry fairways saw everyone get excellent value for well struck drives however the odd crack saw a few balls bounce in very unpredictable directions.  Some repairs and rolling saw the greens quite fast and very true and at long last it seems as if the Corellas might be thinking of moving on.  Towards the end of the round the wind moved around to the south bringing the internal “Out Of Bounds”  on the 18th into play giving some players more than a little cause for concern as they finished off their round.  Despite the odd bad bounce and the effect of the wind a number of players handed in excellent cards.  On a hot, windy day the results were;

Winner; Jim Patton (22) – 43 pts from Mick Squires (9) – 38 pts and Mick Nicholls Jnr (16) – 36 pts

Womens Winner; Pam Drummond (34) – 41 pts

NTPs; 16th – Scott Williams.
