Another good field contested the event with Darren Pike (10 handicap) returning a great round of 77 (including four three-putt greens).

Steve Ash (26) was runner-up, finishing with a fine 70 nett.

Al Sands, a Victorian visitor, took out the front nine with Steve Ellis winning the back.

The pins on the 4th/13th: A Grade Jeff Gore, B Grade Al Keetman and no C Grader hit the target. Club nearest the pins went to: A Grade Jake Clarke, B Grade not hit and Steve Hosking C Grade.

Saturday is the final round of the championships sponsored by Paul and Trevor Latham with Allan Clarke again leading the A Grade, Jeff Gore leading B Grade and Steve Hunt in front in C Grade.
