With good weather and the course in excellent condition. The scoring was good on the Monday and  Tuesday qualifying days. The match play started on Wednesday with 3 sections:- scratch, handicap scratch-12 and handicap 13-24, plus consolation competitions for the players who were not involved in the matchplay.


On the Thursday morning the quarter finals were played but with heavy rain and with the greens starting to flood at lunchtime, a decision was made to postpone the

semi-finals to the Friday morning and change the finals to 18 holes.   The matchplay proved to be very successful for players from Camperdown with Jamie Carlin beating Graeme Morrison in the Scratch Final. In the Scratch-12 handicap final Neil McMahon beat Steve Cook and Ron Cheape beat John McKail in the 13-24 handicap final.


There was also a Stableford competition for senior golfers, played on the Monday, Wednesday and Friday with the best 2 scores counting.  12 players took part in this competition.  The overall winner was new King Jimmy member Tom Montgomery.

Club Steward Paul Henderson with the assistance of Mike Davis, Ronnie, Tammi and Lee-Anne kept everybody well fed and watered. Professional Allan Knox with the assistance of Matthew looked after the players golfing requirements.


At the presentation of trophies the Camperdown GC Captain thanked head green keeper Jim Sievwright and his staff Stuart Manattini and Michael Bissett for the excellent greens and condition of the golf course and King Jimmy for a very enjoyable week.
