It was a sign of the things to come as all players were shown a variety of bunker sand on the 10th tee before play commenced?! The field also enjoyed beer treatment whilst playing, though on some holes water treatment was discussed!
76 players took part in the day, teeing off the 1st and 10th tee from 12 noon.
The main event was a Stableford individual event, and this was very keenly contested. Guests, members of staff, and Dawn Pearce the tournament administrator looked on agog at the clubhouse leaderboard as Geoff Field had completed 12 holes in level par, playing off a handicap on the day of 12. Reality did strike as the round was completed, but Geoff still finished on a fantastic gross score of 76, and 43 Stableford points, to take first prize.
Chris Carter, and Adam Farley both had very strong performances with 42, and 41 points respectively, and earned second and third places.
The team event was won by Messrs Field, Wright, Holland, and Hughes with a strong performance of 88 points.

Along with the individual and team competitions running throughout the day, was a challenge thrown down by the Day Group. All players scoring a gross par, birdie, eagle, or hole in one would earn for the two designated charities of the day a financial reward. 223 pars, and 18 birdies were registered, and that earned £5360 split between The Nepal Disaster Fund, and Shooting Star Chase. What a great effort, and a most generous donation.
