Saturday’s golf event was the challenging game of par.

Only 31 players competed in the nine-hole round, possibly because of the difficult format of the game.

In par, players record a plus, minus or a zero for each hole depending on whether they played to their handicap, so the secret is to play consistently well across all nine holes.

A few players returned with positive scores despite the unique challenges of the game. Blitzing the field with a plus four was Daniel Hyde, who took out the win for the day.

Second-place with a plus two was Patrizia Hinchcliffe closely followed by Wes Lynn in third place, almost with a plus two.

Best vet was Bill Hutchison with a score of zero, best lady was Supatta Shaw with a minus one and gross winner for the day was Vaughan Smith.

In the novelties, Vaughan Smith won nearest the pin, Angie Beir won nearest the pin and ladies long drive, Trevor Meadows scored the men’s long drive, Nick Hegan had the best third shot and Peter Newbold took out the longest putt.
