A hardy group of golfers headed out to the tees on an overcast morning with strong winds gusting to well over 40 KpH.  The 8.30 am tee off had a few yawning and there were a few cobwebs after the celebrations of Christmas Day but the wind soon saw everyone wide awake.  About half-way through there was light drizzle but it too was blown away.  Scoring was difficult with players playing a few holes well only to wipe two in a row.  The wind made all the par 3s extremely difficult and par was an excellent score.  All groups flowed very well and all were back in the rooms just after midday.  On a windy morning the results were;

Winner; Mick Nicholls Jnr (18) – 39 pts from ket Dunn (27) – 35 pts & John Freestone (27) – 32 pts
