Once again competitors were greeted with perfect weather conditions for golf and the course was again presented in excellent condition, notwithstanding a course invasion on Saturday evening by late night visitors in a four wheel drive causing minor damage to the 14th green.
C grade were first cab off the rank and David Campbell with a solid score of 38 points was rewarded with a $100 Coles Myer Gift Voucher, with Michael Mansour runner up on 37 points and Neville Kent taking out 3rd place with 36 points. B grade saw Ken Bruton taking out first place with 39 points from Chris Keeshan on 37 points with Dan Donnelly filling third place with 36 points.
The main event of the day was the Open event and Gus McKillop celebrated a homecoming scoring an off the stick 70 to secure a $300 Coles Myer voucher and the E A Lucas Memorial Trophy for his efforts. Greg Wilson the winner of the event for the past two years just failed to make it a three peat scoring 71 to take out the runner up prize from Nathan Buzimkic with a 73. The A grade net event was dominated by Flinders members led by Chris Hosking on 67 narrowly ahead of Alec Morley 68 and Neil Cavanagh on 69.
The experience gained by participating in 55 consecutive years of the Easter Tournament gave Doug and Janet Derham the edge in Saturday morning's Mixed Foursome event. In perfect conditions, Doug and Janet scored 41 points to comfortably win the money (or in this case - vouchers). Runners up on a count back with 37 points was Women's President Helen Higginson and partner Barry Lee, from Pam and Eric Davey, and Robyn and David Dyer with Bruce and Helen Rafter in 5th place on 36 points.
The PM field hit off in picture perfect conditions and Peter and Annie Dawson first timers to the event scored a creditable 39 points to each win a $150 Coles Myer voucher with Paul Hosking and Bernadette Piekacz receiving an $85 voucher each for their efforts of 37 points. Prize rundown was to 5th place with John and Elizabeth Graham 3rd with 36 points, Christopher Kent and Maree French 4th with 36 points and Duncan and Jan Andrews in 5th with 35 points.
Men's 4BBB Par
Day one of the 105th Easter Tournament saw the introduction of a new format of AM and PM shotgun starts. 96 players hit off at 8am in conditions that were perfect for high scoring and with a plethora of +8's the autoscore system was working overtime determining count backs. A +9 from the father/son combination of Ken and Scott Newman broke the deadlock and each received a $150 Coles Myer voucher for their effort. In second place leading the +8's on a count back and each receiving an $85 Coles Myer voucher was Leon Buynevic and Paul Tolson.
The PM field faced a tougher task as a strong south easterly moved in therefore scoring was slightly lower with the winners Matthew Reid and Scott Patterson carding a +7 to win on a count back from Stan Maine and Rob Cowan.
