Tony Ireland second on 38 and Tony Roe third on 37. Second round of the day was in Division Four with Bob Vale scoring 44 to win by four from David Russell with David Bates on 38.

The Seniors call this alternative golf because it is the alternative competition for those not playing in the friendly match on the same day.

This saw the team score a good win over Burnham. The following day the Avalon team also had a good win at Worlebury and the week closed with the Ladies Alliance team scoring an excellent away win at Bath.
