The event comprised of a morning Stroke Play round for both the Individual and Team Stroke Play Championship, which is followed by Three Inter-County matches to determine the Inter County Match Play Championship. Weymouth was in very good condition and for both days we were blessed with some fine sunny periods if still a little cool at times.
The Dorset Boys coming into the event with hopes of retaining the Team Shield met a very good Devon squad who managed to reverse last year's result by some 6 shots from the Dorset Boys. Our top boy was Sam Trott with a fine 72 one behind James Reed Devon who took the individual Trophy.
So to the afternoons matches saw Dorset playing our hosts Somerset. After the mornings disappointment the Boys bounced back splendidly with a resounding 12-2 win.
