Once again there were those that revelled in the foreign conditions that restricted the usual 'run' on the fairways with some excellent scoring recorded in each grade.
In A grade, Harry Bender returned from a couple of weeks holiday sunning himself up north on the coast.
Bender who plays off a handicap of four had been in good form during late last year and continued his good play this year with a par round 72 to give him the A grade handicap voucher with 68 nett, the medal and best scratch score.

Runner up was Brian Judge with a 70 nett on a countback.
Kobe Hunter from B grade, returned the best nett score of the day with a 66 nett and also secured his grade's medal and scratch score with a 76.
Hunter will be hoping to take this sort of form into the two ball 'cock o' the walk final when he will be combining with his father Darren to take on the other finalists Geoff Thompson and Dave Thompson.
Runner up on 67 nett was promising junior Tallen Egan who has made his way into B grade following some excellent form.
