This year it was contested in a more universally acceptable Greensomes format. Barry Granger and Alfie Puttock managed to hold off young guns Ross Markiewicz and Sam Sheppard by 43 points to 42. Jim Baker and Lenny Hopkinson, captain and vice-captain respectively returned 42 points but finished third on count back from the youngsters.

Next up was the President's Putter and this was won by David Butcher, who recently rejoined the club, carding a gross 70 which converted into Stableford points equates to 42.

Congratulations must go to Chris Robson who shot 41 points to reduce his handicap to one although it was only good for third spot.
