Sunday saw the Men's Marquis Shield Team travel to Featherston to take on Martinborough in the final round of the Marquis Shield. In conditions which were a complete contrast to the previous day, the players were greeted by gale force winds followed by driving rain. Mahunga prevailed in the singles with a 6.5 to 5.5 victory and in the Fourball it was again Mahunga with 4.5 to Martinborough's 1.5. A clean sweep by the juniors meant the 4 points gained ensured they won the Sutherland Trophy, the intermediates won the Intermediate Cup and Mahunga also won the Fourball Cup so a great effort from the team.
With interclub action on Saturday and Marquis Shield on the Sunday there were small field for the club competitions. Saturday saw a par round and the winner was Karl Churchward on 5 up, followed by Martin Andrew on 2 up and Neville Biel on 1 down.
