IN cool and mild conditions for golf, the women played the First National Bowyer and Livermore sponsored Monthly Medal round, as well as the 4th round of the Golf NSW Medal. The course continues to be excellent to play, due largely to the efforts of the wonderful volunteers and a little welcome rain.

Winning the day's competitions was Joan Graham, who came in with 75 nett. In second place was Marjorie Webb with 78 nett. Katie Graham was in third place with 79 nett on a multi way countback. Joan Graham also won the putting competition with 31 putts.
