The Club hosted the South West Area Final of the All England GC Handicap Competition at the Rec. The top two positions would go through to the National Final. The club had two competitors qualify for the Area Final, Miriam Bolger and Bob Hart. Miriam won 4 out of 5 of her block games to finish second in her group with Bob finishing fourth in the same group. The top two in each group went forward to the knockout semi-final stage where Miriam came up against James Galpin (Nailsea), who recently finished runner up in the World U21 GC Championships, and was beaten 7-4. James playing off a handicap of -3 won all his matches during the day despite giving between 6 -14 extra strokes per game.
