There were more than 200 players in competitions plus the players in the handicap match-play.
The ladies have reached the last eight in their match-plat, with Tina Badenhorst to play Tiina Randmae in the top half of the draw and Pauline Redpath plays Ann Gardel in the bottom half.
The winners in each will play in the finals.
The men’s competition is down to the last eight with Vic Feldman to play the winner of Danny York and Frances Appleton; Ken Lovette plays Phil Batty; Kelvin Stephens goes up against Luchie Gardel, and Luke Henry battles it out with Nathan Sothmann.
The finals will be played early in August.

WHITSUNDAY GOLF: On a very cool morning, with a definite chill factor in the breeze, 25 Whitsunday golfers played the July Monthly Medal last Sunday, generously sponsored by Airlie Panel and Paint and Master Butchers Whitsunday.
The nip in the air that lasted all morning definitely affected our tropically acclimatised members with some unusually high scores on the day, a lot of trees suffered some bruising as well according to anecdotal evidence.
A-grade: Winner – Clay Coles with 74 nett (plus the unofficial least putts on the day – 27) on a count back from Peter Fox
B-grade: Winner – Mick Caton with 75 nett from Don Cameron on 80.
A-grade: Winner – Pauline Redpath with 77 nett from Tiina Randmae with a 78
B-grade: Vicki Tuck with an excellent game with a score of 72 nett from Karen Rix on 78
Although not part of the WGC competition, nearest the pin shots were made by Tiina Randmae (x2), Peter Fox and Clay Coles.
