The ladies played a 3 Person Team Stableford event on Thursday September 14 kindly sponsored by Judy Carmody & Narelle Rutter. With the best score recorded on the par 3's, the two best on the par 4's and all three to count on the par 5's the results could be quite variable! The team to prevail with 86 points was Ann Cameron, Cath Payne and Yvonne Palmer. They were one point ahead of two other teams Cheryl Clydsdale, Leanda Nutt and Kathy Robinson 85 points on a countback from Dordie Bragg, Mary Brennan and Dinie Bishop and balls were distributed to these all players.

On Saturday September 16, an 18 Hole Individual & 2B 2 Digit Stableford sponsored by Peter & Jake Teague was played with a great field of fifty six players. The scores were very good on the newly renovated greens. The 2 Ball, 2 Digit winners were Lyn Banks & Kerry McLennan on 346 points. This event requires the lowest stableford score to be the first digit and the higher score to be the second digit on each hole! Again, some good partnering is required to do well. The next best score was by Mac Dawson & Bardy Badenhorst on 345 points.
Prizes were generously distributed to the individual winner Scott Bourke who had a great round of 42 points.
