Split into three categories, men, women and mixed, the scoring was like the weather, extremely hot. The 18-hole team's tournament featured a number of novelties, including hitting from the 16th tee with a cricket bat, putting out on the 3rd with a "cack-handed" putter and holing out on the 9th with an eightball cue. All 18-holes featured nearest the prizes, while the 15th hole also had a fairway accuracy drive. Arguably the shot-of-the-day belonged to former East Gambier footballer, Noel "Boof" Doody who hit his 2-iron second shot on the par 5, 15th to within millimetres of the cup, which he duly tapped in for an eagle three.

The winning men's team included Alice Springs visitor, John Leerson, Doug Mullen, former MGGC president Graham Allen and Rod Morris, who returned a nett 57, seven under their aggregate handicap. The best women's team – recording a nett 60¼ - included Jane Lamont, Julie Oldfield and the mother - daughter pair of Bev and Kerry Pedlar. Donna Freeman, Leanne Bain, Bryan Hunt and Trent Eitzen combined to record the lowest score of the tournament – 55 1/8 – and win the mixed teams section. MGGC officials worked hard to ensure the tournament was a success with a mobile drinks and refreshment station continually moving around the course.
