A beautiful day to be out on the course, a gentle wind, mostly from the south, a few clouds and a temperature in the high teens/low 20s.  Fairways, greens and surrounds in top condition and the rapid growth of the rough under control.  The quarter finals of the John Laing shield were generally close affairs with some excellent golf being played.    One highlight of the day was a 75 “off the beater” by RGC captain, Mal Mottram.  The stroke field featured a few wild extremes in scoring; some golfers had an excellent day others, less so.  On another top afternoon to be out on the park the day’s results were;

1st; Shaun Scales – 95/27/68

2nd; Rob Rea – 90/18/72

3rd;  Toby Clement – 88/15/73

NTPs; 1st – Toby Clement, 15th – Mick Squire & 16th – Toby Clement
