The competition attracted more than 80 participants and was played on a glorious sunny and dry spring day.

The best gross score was recorded by the in-form B team regular Neil Herbert with an outstanding 74. However, Neil was beaten on count-back for the Division One net prize by Jonathan Cowley, who registered a fantastic 67.

Young Andy Leith grabbed third place with 69, again on count-back, from a rejuvenated David 'Hadaway Man' Findlay and the Welsh wizard Gareth Jones.

Division Two was also a close-run affair, with Neil Webster posting a remarkable net 66 ahead of Stuart Michaelis (68) and Bruce Clement (69).

Seven players earned a bonus by making a gross two on one of the par three holes.
