It was a beautiful summer day to play golf on Saturday, and players enjoyed an interesting game sponsored by Karratha Country Club.

The par competition is all about pluses and minuses, but ending with 0 is also fine.

This round’s winner, with a score of +3, was Mark Payne.

He also won best gross score of the day on a countback, with a total of 37 strokes.
