The exceptional winter weather and with the course in great shape the potential was there for some cracking performances.

Honours were evenly shared across the day.

Noble by name and ‘noble’ by performance.  Bob Noble put in a great performance to take out the top spot in A Grade with 39 points plus a NTP on the 4th and on the 6th.  John Milloy from Nambour filled top spot in B Grade also with 39 points.

Ray Leslie’s golf cart (the little motor mower that thinks it’s a golf transporter) impressed the other players in Rays‘ group and got an honorable mention in Glenn Martin’s  speech on behalf of Peregian Springs.
