Autumnal conditions greeted competitors but the winner on count back was Lady Secretary Cheryl Woodhouse with 36 points from Graeme Syme. Cheryl started with a birdie and focused her steely concentration – indeed her play improved over the closing holes as the weather deteriorated. Paul Doran and Rick Smith were 3rd & 4th with 35s.

Sonia Inniss had the best front nine with a net 34.5 and Rianda Markram the best back nine with a net 35.5.
Toby Birtwistle of Putney Park carded an unbeatable 58 to win the RP Open. Five shots back with splendid 63s were John Fordham and Nigel Ward and a shot further back were first lady Alison Chadwick and Paul Doran.
Putney Park scooped the nearest pins with the notable exception of Alison at 13. Longest drives were Mike Church (PP) men and Suzanne Clifton (ladies).
Both the Ladies and Men came up short in their friendly matches at Amida.
Result: 3-0 & 2-1

Despite close competition Amida were clear winners with a 3-0 win for the ladies and 2-1 win for the men.
