Twelve entrants took part in Hunstanton's Inaugural GC open for The Hampson Memorial Shield and at which some high standard played was observed.

Split into two groups of 6 the top two of each group played in semi-finals comprised of John Noble v Simon Carter & David Widdison v Roger Goldring. Interestingly with both games finishing 7-4. The final watched by an appreciative home crowd proved to be an interesting and taut affair with David building a commanding 4-1 lead. However, seeing the game starting to slip away John suddenly up his game and ran home the winner 7-4.

Hopefully in the future the club can build on it's first year success and it will attract more numbers in the future.
