The Thrifty Foods Glacier Greens Ladies Open was played Saturday, June 9 with 84 golfers entered.
On the Friday night there was a tombstone competition and also a chipping contest which was enjoyed by all the participants. The chipping contest was in aid of the breast cancer charity and half of the money collected was donated to that cause. The winner was Frankie McCaffery of Sunnydale.
