The combined scores saw Ben Hitchins secure the trophy with 78 points (36+42) with Jamie Sawyer second on 77 (40+37) and Kerry Pardoe third with 76 (39+37).

Other additions to the event included a skittles evening and the eighth hole charity challenge on the weekend in which more than £600 was raised for the captain’s chosen charities, Prostate Cancer UK and Daisy’s Dream.
