Division 2 saw the undefeated Belmont outfit pitted against the strong Muree team.  A close result was forecast.

At the completion of the 8 matches, the teams were locked together on 4 all.   Belmont then selected No.2 player in Shaun O'Malley and Muree selected No.4 player in Steve Hassett to play a sudden death play-off.   This play-off lasted only 1 hole with Belmont being victorious and winning the Division 2 Pennant.

The Belmont team contained a family connection - with Father, Mark Ellison, playing No.1 and son, Hamish Ellison, playing No.8.    Good judges expect those playing positions to be reversed in coming years.
