Two days of around 30C and steady winds had seen off any casual water from the weekend’s 35mm+ of rain; the couch sprigs will be loving the  moisture  and the heat.  The day began well, warm, clear conditions, a gentle breeze from the Sth and RGC captain Mal Mottram dropping his tee shot onto the 1st green.  As the round progressed the wind blew up a little and moved to the SW but it had little effect on the golf.  A number of players performed very well considering the effects of the couch grass sprigging was a major factor on all fairways.  Returning a score at or better than handicap was an excellent performance.  It was also wonderful to welcome back ex RGC member John Gradie who was down with a group from NSW for a wine education tour.  On a top day for golf the results were;

Winner & November Medalist; Scott Williams – 87/18/69 from Andrew Clement – 82/10/72, Mick Squire -77/2/75 & Matt Burkett – 105/30/75
