82 players competed in the CGI 18 Hole Women's Christmas Tournament at Waitikiri Golf Club on Friday 8 December. It was pleasing to have such a good entry including players from Ashburton and North Canterbury. With the temperature at 30 degrees, Waitikiri's green fairways and trees offered some relief and players coped well in the conditions.

The prize winners were treated to a prize table of hams and other Christmas goodies.
