Despite a goodly contingent of RGC golfers heading over to Woodend for their annual Par 3 competition a strong field teed up for the November Medal.  The round began in cool, overcast conditions but the clouds soon lifted and the sun came out.  The course was in great nick with good cover on most of the fairways, the surrounds in excellent condition and the greens putting fast and true.  The ~20mm of rain over night had taken the sting out of the fairways and a southerly wind blew up during the middle of the round causing some distress for golfers who found their shots drifting well off course.  The conditions were almost perfect for the lower markers and a few took advantage to record very good scores.  On a sunny, slightly windy afternoon the results were;

NTPs; 1st & 16th – Les Gaunt, 15th – John Laing
