Six leagues make up the zone — Lower Great Southern, Great Southern, South East Coastal, Upper Great Southern, South Central Arunga and Central Stirling.

Each league selects four teams of two players over five rounds of competition against opposing teams where they score points for aggregate wins in respective games.

Lower Great Southern, made up of players from Albany, Cranbrook, Denmark, Emu Point, Frankland, Middleton Beach, Mt Barker, Mt Barker Golf and Walpole, were successful at the end of the two days.
