Conditions were slightly windy with some drizzle but the condition of the course was in top shape for the club’s biggest weekend of the year. The ladies four ball-best-ball was taken out by Kaye Ellen and Linda Maher with a strong score of 44 points. Rodger Perris and Robby Exell took out the men’s section with 45 points.

In the stroke event Tania Dignan was the best on the women’s side of the competition, shooting a score of 90. 

Glen Morgan scored 73 to take out the men’s side.

Dignan backed up her efforts in the mixed pinehurst competition on Sunday, claiming another victory alongside son Kyle Dignan. The pairing scored 78.
