On a very blustery day that threatened a significant amount of rain 31 teams played in the Ladies Autumn Am-Am Open. As the first players were finishing at about 13:30 the rain came with the final group just starting their round, luckily after just over an hour of heavy showers the rain disappeared for the rest of the day although the very strong winds and cool temperatures continued to cause problems for many teams.
