The second half-yearly competition for the Challenge Cup presented by Major Hall played on the 22nd when a field of 18 competed, The weather was brilliant, almost too much so, but a strong easterly wind, combined with some changes in the course, militated against record-making. The competition was limited to members of the club, two rounds of the green; twenty four holes was the task set. The winner was Mr Cambell Todd, of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers, who played in rare form, scores as follows; Campbell Todd, 126-8-118; Thomas Dickson. 121+6-127; Major Hickley, 143-15-128; A E Dickinson, 143-10-133; Major R Hall, 154-15-139; G Vesey, 152-12-140; Captain Vincent, 149-4-145; O Vandeleur, 163-15-148; J G Ramadge, 172-24-148; W Walker, 153-4-149.
