David Winters will be the course setter and Gil Hollamby the controller.

Enjoy the spectacular views from Mt Dutton! You can spot Monday's event at the Sandmine.

Gary Ettridge will be the course setter and vetted by David Winters.

Catering will be available on both days.

Event fees will be the same as the 2014 SA Championships.
