As Sunday morning arrived competitors rushed to book last minute reservations for the Everglades Hotel Open for Ladies and Gents. With a packed timesheet the pro-shop staff were tempted to begin auctioning slots to the highest bidder for those who had enjoyed the late Saturday Night entertainment in the clubhouse with the superb Palais Swing Band but had failed to book their late tee-times in advance!

 The competition swung into action and Mr Neil Duncan(13) electrified the contest with a superb 42 points in the muggy Augusta-like conditions. The birdie at the difficult Par 3 12th, “Billy’s” was a spike in a performance by Mr Duncan more noted for steadiness than volatility. Mr Jarleath Clarke(12) was powering to a superb back nine that would have surely reeled his rival in until single pointers on the notorious 14th/15th combination left him needing a gutsy birdie-par-par finish to take second place with 40 points. After an indifferent start to his round Mr George Curry(13) engineered a steady 20 point back nine to book his third place spot on the winners’ podium. Mr Lester Moore(2) took the Gross prize with 34 points, Ms Ann McGoldrick found her 32 points was the best of the ladies scores, Mr Ciaran O’Neil’s 31 points was good enough to lift the Visitor’s Prize, Mr Eric Watson with 20 points grasped the Front Nine Prize and Mr John Rosborough’s 21 points was the last prize of Open Week when he lifted the Back Nine on Sunday.
