Players tested their golfing skills right from the first hit off against the full force of a southerly, blowing at 50kms and gusting to 60kms - but it didn’t seem to break the competitive spirit with all players enjoying the challenge.

The CEO Institute - NSW team of Greg Kay and Ian Wheeler (with 36 points) finished in the Top 10 whilst Luke Simmons and Nic Mills were a couple of points behind. Well done all!
