David Higgins (Waterville GC) and Richard Kilpatrick (Banbridge GC) shared first prize at the Belvoir Park Pro-Am sponsored by Deep River Rock.
The pair carded three under par rounds of 67 to finish two shots ahead of Ciaran Molloy (Blackwood GC), Noel Murray (Massereene GC) and Wayne O’Callaghan (Fernhill Golf & CC).
Kilpatrick made a poor start to his round with bogeys at the second and third but hit back with an eagle at the par five fifth. He added further birdies at the eighth and ninth to reach the turn in two under par 36.
The Banbridge assistant maintained his positive momentum after the turn and further birdies at the 13th and 15th got him to four under but a dropped shot at the par three 16th saw him finish the event on three under par.
Waterville’s Higgins played some flawless golf on the front nine with birdies at the fifth, sixth and ninth getting him to three under. He added a further birdie at the par four 10th but immediately dropped a shot at the 11th.
Five further pars were followed by his second dropped shot of the round at the 17th but he finished in style with a birdie at the tricky par four 18th.
Portadown professional Paul Stevenson guided the home team of Violet McBride, Pauline Bailie and Sarah McGivern to victory in the team event.
