Ninety-six golfers played Saturday’s qualifying round in order to find their positions within the six divisions and continue with match play over the following two days. The tournament continues in popularity with a full field plus waiting list. The course was in fabulous condition although some found the fast greens challenging. It was pleasing to note five players under the age of 15 this year.
Allen Forrest from Porangahau was presented with lifetime free entry into this tournament by Club President Erik Lei in recognition of his 38 years of attendance.
