There were prizes galore for the day and a big thank you to Clare Hurley for organising such quality prizes and for selling heaps of raffle tickets. Once everyone was back at the 19th hole many stories and heaps of friendship was had by all.

A big thank you to greenkeeper Doug Turner and his volunteers for presenting the course in wonderful condition. Thank you to all the volunteers for making the day a great success. Needless to say everyone is looking forward to the 12th Hurluka Cup.
