Around 50 players from all 3 divisions took part in the event which contained 9 different competitions, the main one being the Open Handicap. Involving players from all divisions it raised some excellent contests non more so than Lily Cherry against Tom Cherry who won that match but the eventual winner was Richard Wood, from the Steps M team in Div 3, who played some great shots throughout the different rounds.
