Results of the first North-Western Amateur Championships.

Never since it was organised has the Port Pirie Golf Club had such a day of sport and pleasure as it had yesterdayon the occasion of the inauguration of the annual North-Western Championship meeting. The ambitious scheme that had been planned was realized, not merely up to the standard hoped for, but with the blessings of natural conditions that could not have been better. The day was bright, sharpened with the bite of mild winter thaexhilarates.

 

The ground was soft and springy, yet nowhere muddy nor wet. The course was a picture of shades of green. Trees, shrubs and grass had all put on their winter sheen of colour and with nature the most activmembers of the club had co-operated in cleaning up the fairways, getting rid of unwanted obstructions and renewing the scrapes.
