The day was quite warm for Easter and a great field of 16 players playing on the long weekend was good to see. The course still waiting for the opening rain to generate that familiar green we are all used to seeing. Gary and John managed to oil up 3 scrapes during the week and they came up a treat with all commenting on the new surfaces. Captain Paul Shields started slow with a bogey and then turned on a golfing lesson for his playing partners with 5 pars and a birdie on the front nine for 22 pts despite the last two holes with only a point each. Steve Kelly also massed 20 points on the front nine to establish a good start for a solid round. The back nine holes proved tougher for many with the winds but generally the course was playing well despite the hard surface.
Match play will be drawn next weekend with the draw announced at Presentation.
A Grade was won by Paul Shields with a solid 38 points with Chris Barker, Ian Smith both on 34 points taking the minor placings.
B Grade was won by Steve Kelly finishing with 37 points with Ray Prior and Jim Weir the closest each with 31 points for 2nd and 3rd.
A Grade: P. Shields 38, C. Barker 34, I. Smith 34, I. Clark 34, A. Christou 34, G. Payne 33, J. Ball 33 and R. Hogg 30 Pts.
