The Saturday Competition was the annual Deacon Dwyer Trophy event, a 4BBB Stableford Medley sponsored by Rod Besgrove. The field of 70 players competed in very hot and windy conditions, but all finished their rounds.
The pairing of George Falvey and Brianna Duncan, on 46 points, won on count back from Nicole Death and Jenny Fletcher with the Ladies handling the heat better than the men.
The NTP’s went to 9th, Ladies’ J Fletcher, Men T Morgan; 18th, Ladies’ Nil, Men B Parker, with the 3rd Hole Super Pin going to Mike Spice. The best Two of the day was an eagle scored on the 13th hole by Brianna Duncan, with a very fine chip in after a monster drive.
The weather conditions on Sunday meant there was no Stableford Medley field.
