"The course was very tough on the day," Henry said.

"They played to 74 for the stroke players and 73 for the stableford.

"The normal is 71."

The event was played in good spirits people were happy with the way things panned out.

"Everyone was very patient and loved that they were treated while they waited," Henry said.

"Many were complimentary about our club, it's organisation and how well we manage with volunteer workers."
