A strong field turned out for the rain delayed October Medal anda spot in the final eight for the John Laing Shield.  For the first time in many months the sun was shining and there was no rain on the horizon.  The rough had been cut around all fairways but deeper in it was too wet and any who ventured there usually ended up playing a “three off the tee”.     A  great effort, 12 hrs, by Steve Wilkins saw all the fairways mown on Friday and while there were a few wet/muddy spots in general the course was in excellent condition.   For many players it was a round of  constrating halves , great one then struggling the second.  As with most golf competitions. the players who could recover from bad shots and keep close to their handicap won the day.   On beautiful, sunny afternoon the results were;

Winner & October Medalist; Andrew Clement – 81/7/73

2nd; Mick Squire – 78/4/74

3rd; Luke Lyons – 91/15/76  C/B Pat Chisholm – 87/11/76
