The field teed off under overcast skies with merely a zephyr from the south.  Soon enough the sun came out and the afternoon warmed a little making for a very pleasant round of golf.  The cold air and the soft fairways saw all but the longest hitters lose distance off the tee.  Again, heavy dews, soft fairways and the plentiful grass clippings saw “Mark, Lift, Clean & Replace” given.  Steady golf from a number of players saw the day’s competition looking like a battle between three then one player shot ahead before a disastrous 14th saw him fall back to the field.  One highlight of the day saw Dean Jones play his second shot on the par 4, 365m 4th from the within the branches of a large old tree.  Deano was able to hack it back onto the fairway then par the hole!  On a very pleasant day the results were;

Winner; Dean Jones – 74/3/71 from Jim Patton – 93/20/93 & Ron Walker – 97/24/73

NTPs; 1st – Anthony Freeman, 15th – Michael McCarten & 16th – Jim Patton
