although the slow greens as a result of recent reno-
vations made putting tricky.
It was no trouble however for the A Grade win-
ner, David Mitchell of Phillip Island.
Playing off his newly acquired 11 handicap, he
shot 75 off the stick to score a fantastic 44 stabl-
eford points and beating his age by five shots - a
super effort and one not often seen in club golf.
