Defending champion Chris Robinson and Ian Simpson were tied after the first round, the pair having shot 74, but the former was able to retain his crown with a superb one-under-par round of 70 in the afternoon to win by nine shots.

It was a similar story in the ladies' competition.

There the defending champion was Michelle Gardner and although she trailed by four shots after the morning's round, she produced an excellent display in the afternoon to also win by nine shots.

In the senior’s event Timothy Beisiegel was triumphant coming in five shots ahead of the rest of the field with a great score of 75.

Both Robinson and Gardner received their trophies behind the 18th green from club captain Lesley Hewitt, with warm applause from the gathered club members.
