The Club Championships had all players hitting-off, from the 1st in 10 minute intervals.  There was some light drizzle during the round and the wind moved from the NW to the SW causing more than a few problems for all approaches shots.  Around 25mm of rain during the week saw the course fast softer than in recent months, this and the cold air saw all players work harder to get good distance off the tee and with low irons.  However, despite the tougher conditions a number of players were able to tame the course and post excellent scores, none better than one of the club’s veterans.  On a cold, breezy afternoon the results were;

Winner; Mick Nicholls Snr; 88/21/67 from Pat Chisholm – 81/13/69, Mal Mottram – 82/11/71 & Les Gaunt – 79/8/71
