The ladies medal event was won by Mei Bell which was a maiden Saturday victory for her. Mei returned nett 76 for her round and , like the men’s event, a countback with Helen Jones put her in front.

Pin shots were won by Darrly Boekholt at 3, Scott Constable at 12 and Matt Waterworth at 17. Ladies pins went to Nikki Waterworth at 3 and 17 and Kay Webb collected at 12. Pro-pins were claimed by Scott Constable at 1/10, Alan Kerr at 5/14 and Keith Jones at 9/18.
In the run down, scores of nett 76 and better for the men and nett 79 and better for the ladies were rewarded with a ball. Highlight of the day went to Tom Fittock who managed a 13 at the par 5 6th hole after he got caught up in the bunker near the green. After a number of shots needed to clear the netting face of the bunker, it ruined what might have been a possible winning round.
