The event was first played in 1947 and this year saw players representing Royal Brighton Yacht Club, Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron, Mornington Yacht Club and Sandringham Yacht Club gather at the renowned Woodlands Golf Club.
As usual the course was in spectacular condition and the Woodlands team provided great service and support to this event. A perfect day for golf was also provided.
While all clubs shared in the individual awards, it was Sandringham who was victorious in taking home the Victory Cup.
