Well over a hundred members, guests and friends of the Captain Clive Davies played in an unusual five man Texas Scramble made to cater for the large entry. With the fine weather experienced and the excellence of the course, the golfers returned some outstanding results.
Leading the way was the Steve Beresford led team of Julian Thomas, Ben Willis, Graham Saunders and guest Geraint Evans (Llanwern G. C.) with a score of 53. Narrowly coming second was the Mark Deveraux team of Dai Christopher, Gerwyn Pugh, J A V Roberts and Dai James. In third place were the Ioan Richards’ team of Huw Williams, George Shepherd, Emyr Jones and Club President John Wooton.
Nearest the pin on the 10th was Patrick Jones while guest Carwyn Evans (Cwnrhydyneuadd) produced the longest drive on the 12th. Another guest, Geraint Evans (Llanwern) was rewarded for holing the longest putt on the 15th hole.
Clive Davies not only looked after the players throughout the afternoon with general sustenance out on the course but also provided an excellent meal for all at the 19th hole. After the presentations the celebrations went deep into the night.
