Brian Summers became the club’s men’s champion after he defeated Paul Griffin 22-14 and David Roberts took the men’s two-wood title, coming from behind to win the last end and take the title with a 13-12 success.
Ann Vincent and Penny Weeks fought out a close three-wood (106) final with Ann holding off a spirited finish from Penny to win 110-99.
Brian Goddard and Andrew Cardy defeated Paul Griffin and Tony Lim 26-10 in the men’s pairs while, in the men’s handicap, Bryan Membery defeated Peter Cooper 21-15.
