Thirty-four Tiger members invited a parent, grandparent or friend to join them in competing for the 2008 Tiger Adult Child Trophy.
Each team was photographed on the first tee prior to the Tiger member teeing off.
The foursomes format was played with the adults teeing off on alternate holes.
With soaring temperatures, a beach-style fun chipping competition was also held on the Mill Green practice range.
Designed by parent Tim Taylor, it comprised of sand challenges, chipping into water and through hoops.
Robert Armstrong and father John took the Chipping Trophy with a fantastic score of 800.
John also won the Top Adult with his individual score of 550.
Corey Roff took the Tiger Trophy with 275 points.
As the aroma of the barbecue swept across the putting green, the scores began trickling in with Mark and Tom Jeffries' gross 28 setting a tough challenge.
Following a spirited challenge, Joshua and Malcolm Taylor just missed out on the top trophy with another fabulous score of gross 28.
Allan and Ed Clark took the third gross trophy with 31.
Corey and Russell Roff won the nett trophy with a superb 36 for nett 16.
Edward and Tim Taylor scored 44 nett 18 for second place and Adam Lee and Guy Ranford were in third with 37 nett 20.
With nearest the pins on five holes, further prizes were awarded to Tigers Jack Grogan, George Avgousti and Allan Clark.
Adult winners were Tom Jeffries and Guy Ranford.
A barbecue was later served for more than 100 players and guests before the presentations were conducted by Mill Green head professional Ian Parker.
A golf lesson was won by parent Lucy Taylor after a heads and tails competition for all adult partners.
The best dressed team went to Olivia and Teresa Dyson in vibrant orange and black.
