Unfortunately a cold easterly breeze kept the field down to 36 players; however, some late afternoon sunshine did instil a sparkle into some of the players and helped them gain some respectable scores.

Highlights of the day’s play was an excellent eagle on the par four 16th by Donny Hutcheson and a good birdie on the long par three 10th by Vince Dobby which helped put them both into second place in their divisions.
