This annual event saw the clubs ten lowest handicap, male and female golfers available on the day, simultaneously playing in a straight knock out competition. The Ladies competition was held over holes 1-9, while the Men's competition took place through holes 10-18. All ten players from each group started their respective 1st hole, with the highest scoring player being eliminated at the end of each hole played, until finally 2 players remained to shoot it out on the last hole for the win. Tied scores at the end of any hole were decided by way of a nearest the hole 'Chip Off'. The Ladies competition was a close fought battle which saw no less than 8 holes decided by way of a Chip Off, including the final hole which saw Pam Shire out chip Sue Storer for the win. The Men’s competition got off to a shaky start with some very high scores on the first 2 holes. The competition was finally won by Steve Cowan who narrowly saw off a strong challenge from Harry Maratheftis on the final green. The competition was a great success and the day was enjoyed by both players and spectators alike. We look forward to the 2013 Shoot-Out where we will see if this years winners can do the double and defend their titles.
