The rain thankfully held off for most of the play and there was a very close battle at the top of the leaderboard battle between the two All Ireland finalists, Brid Sullivan and Breda Travers.

The winners as follows: 1st Breda Travers, 2nd Brid Sullivan; Gross Mary Ryan Leddy; 3rd Evelyn Smith, Back 9 Maureen Dolphin; Front 9 Patricia Bohan; Category 30-36 Noreen Lynam; Category 20-29 Sheila Cooney; Mens 9 Hole 1st John Joe Holohan; 2nd Michael Moran.
