Sheilah Mitchell and Karen Moore finished third with 37 points, while Gill Fussey and Barbara Laing rounded up the top four with 36 points.

Nearest the pin prizes went to Liz Wride and Mel Gregory.

The golf was followed by fish and chips, with £45 raised for Mel’s captain’s charity, the British Heart Foundation.
