Brandon Minichiello took the Paul Davey Trophy for lowest nett with a fantastic score of 18.
Tiger captain Joshua Taylor took the Morgan Trophy for the lowest nett with 30.
Nearest the pin prizes went to brothers Edward and Henry Taylor.
A club spokesperson said: "There were some excellent skills displayed, which may have resulted from the practice and coaching sessions attended during the half-term break."
