Southland managed to draw with the Otago Golf team in 1956 and was up halfway through the tournament, but as the tailenders came home the final tally was 12 points a side and as Southland were holders of the trophy they managed to bring it back home.
The biggest win of the day was the Otago pair, the Colquhoun brothers, who out played M. Balloch and G. Halligan 7 and 6.
Southlanders J. Lindsay and D. W. Maley scored a convincing win against a strong Otago pair, A. Gibbs and L. C. Brown 5 and 3.
A. T. Maley, (Southland) and A. R. Timms were the first to drive off in the singles and by the fourth hold Maley was struggling against Timms lead of 3 up. At the turn, however, Maley rallied to make up the difference. By the 13th he was one up. At the 17th they were all square, but Maley struck trouble approaching the green and Timms won 1 up.
The two captains, A. Gibbs (Otago) and G.C. Halligan (Southland) played each other in the singles with Gibbs winning 1-up. It was an even match, with Gibbs holding an early 1 hold lead.
