The day dawned misty and overcast but by hit-off the sun had poked through a for a cool afternoon however, the SSW wind rarely dropped under 30Kph making some holes play very long while a gust would push balls well wide on other holes.  Almost 35mm fell on the course on Mon/Tue, the drains ran full all week and there was virtually no mowing so all fairways  and most surrounds had areas of long grass.  Again, players had to watch every shot carefully for fear of plugging.   The final of the W. E. Tom Shield proved to be a closely fought affair but in the end seven birdies from the Wright brothers was enough to see them over the line.  The stroke round was a much more challenging with only one player coming close to or bettering his handicap.  On a cool day on a wet course the results were;

1st; Luke Lyons – 86/16/70

2nd; Mitch Atlas – 84/7/77 C/B

3rd; Sherif Abdel-Sayed – 111/34/77
