The event started with the Practice day and 'welcome' dinner before the main events on the second day.The Tournament was an individual Stableford competition played in four balls and with a shotgun start so that everyone started and finished together.

Everyone then got together on the lawns for the presentations of the powered wheelchairs followed by the Tournament Banquet in the evening. This included the announcement of the winners, auctions and entertainment from our after dinner speakers.
