Balls went to Harold Lyme, Keith Hancox, Alan Cairney, Les Handicott, Peter Dale, Marty Hotham and David Campbell. Nearest the pin on the 17th went to Kim Rawlings.

Saturday golf attracted a very good field of 45 players.

The winner in A grade was Wayne Sellers with a good round of 41 points and the runner-up was Adrian Poulten with 39 points.

Nearest the pin on the first hole was Peter Stewart, just 2.3 metres from the cup. Adrian Poulten was closest on the 17th at just 1.4m from the cup.
