The best of the rest on the front 9 went to Jenniffer Goodall with an excellent 29.5 strokes net, while Glenn Summerfield shot 34 nett on the back 9 to take out that prize.

Nearest the Pin ball winners were shared around between: 2nd Mark McClellan, the 6th went to Dragan Knezevic, the 11th hole was taken out by Keith Muller and on the 15th Sandra Marshall took home the prize. The 11th hole birdies nest went unclaimed.
