Due to a withdrawal, the planned competition on 3rd April was changed from a 3-man Joker to a 2-man Texas Scramble. Each pairing had to use 6 of their drives with the remaining 6 shots open to the best shot. 14 members competed with the two Bri(y)ans achieving a magnificent 6 birdies in their round – 4 in succession. However, a total of 4 double bogies meant that they only finished third. The winners managed 2 birdies but had only 2 bogies meaning that they finished nearly 4 shots in front of second place.

Nearest the pin – Hole 6, John Burke, Hole 9, Ray Housley.

3rd Place, Brian Coupe, Bryan Watson, Handicap 4.76 – 52.24 shots.

2nd Place, John O’Brien, Maggi Edwards, Handicap 4.79 – 52.21 shots.

1st Place, Lawrence Wanty, Mike Davies, Handicap 4.04 – 48.96 shots.
