Thursday, July 20
The smallest Thursday field for some time of 114 players encountered alterable weather conditions during the day and unusually the further the day went and the conditions deteriorated, the better the scores became, as reflected by the DSR of 73/72. In A Grade Club President Geoff Lanham prevailed with 43 points off a handicap of 11, one ahead of Course Superintendent Brendan Warby and five ahead of Bob Knipler. B Grade saw the best score of the day where Matthew George recorded 44 points off a handicap of 17, six shots ahead of David Hayward and Chris Fondum , with Chris Eardley missing out on countback. In C Grade Greg Ryan had his first win for a long time with 41 points off a handicap of 30, four ahead of a deserving Terry Pickles with George Matheson one point further back on countback from Lindsay Madsen from Yamba. The nearest-the-pin winners were Geoff Lanham on 3, John Breust on 9, Mark Elmasri on 14 ( almost a hole-in-one !) and Chris Goldsmith on 17, while the ball competition went down to all on 32 points.
