Many of the Internal Competition matches have had a very close score line with a few surprising results.
Finals day, which was played on Saturday 1st September with a start time of 10am.There was heavy dew on the green, with the green team (Tuesday Club) on hand the green was brushed twice prior to the 10am start. As the green was wet at the far end the green protector mats were deployed. What a wonderful job the Tuesday Club have done all season those in attendance were able to see the green at its best and with the sun coming out it was a wonderful setting for all, spectators, markers players and the social team that provided an excellent afternoon team.
