The weekend the Farmers Agri-care monthly mug played on 8 October 2022, drew Cato Ridge golfers who took on the local St Cathryns players on their own course. For some it was their first visit to St Cathryns and they made a weekend of it. They attended the Beerfest at Hermannsburg and played the course again on Sunday. In an unofficial farm friendly test against St Cathryns, the local team beat Cato Ridge by 32.3 to Cato Ridge’s average of 28.1.
