Now in it’s sixth year, the competition started with a few nerves as the first tee saw some variation in distance and direction.

But competitors were soon into the swing of things.

Following a superb meal in the Collinview Restaurant at Ballyclare Golf Club, the prizes were presented by honorary treasurer Bob Esler with the results as follows:
