The Saturday club competition was the annual Boertjies versus Souties showdown. The Boertjies were victorious, narrowly beating the Souties by four points – 535 to 531.
The betterball competition was won by Carlos Pereira and Doug Johnston on 40 points. Chris Redelinghuys and Robin Shuttleworth (as ghost) came second on a count out with 39 points. Third place went to Eddie Davies and Mike Jones, also on a count out on 39 points.
The ladies featured well with the nearest to the pins, which went to Jane Davies on the 4th hole, Shannon Gottlieb on the 11th hole and Barbara Jackson on the 16th. The best dressed couple prize was awarded to Kim and Dawn Howden.
