The event, now in its 31st year, saw 20 Teams of Four taking part.

They had the pleasure of playing Highwoods Golf Course in the best condition for 40 years, saying it was a real treat to putt on the perfect greens.

A tricky wind made scoring higher than usual,and made the winning scores very tight.
