Gordon Walker (70) was second in the Seniors’ division while Wayne Boucher (72) was second among the 13 and Over players.
Among the low-handicappers (0-12), national player Dawn Bispham edged Danny Cumberbatch by a stroke, posting a net 71. Both Cumberbatch and Mark Blakeley shot a net 72 and were separated by the count-back system.
Barbados junior player, Eryn Blakeley (net 79), was also a narrow winner over Zerina Belgrave (net 80) in claiming the Women’s division.
Bispham collected a second prize while registering the best gross score of the day, a one-over par 73.
