Paul Morgan made a brilliant birdie on the final hole to win the Singles Stableford competition which was held over the weekend of October 15 and 16.
It gave him a final total of 41pts and that was enough to pip Declan Muckian (13) who finished with 40pts.
Playing off 21, Morgan had gone out in 20pts helped by three consecutive three-point hauls from the fifth hole.
Down the back nine Morgan picked up three points at both the 10th and 11th and managed to save a point at the 12th when he played out from the yellow hazard in front of the green.
Another three points followed at the 14th, but he could only manage one point at the par three 17th which left him on 37pts standing on the 18th tee.
His drive ended up along the tree line on the right of the fairway, but he had a line to the green and hit a magnificent approach shot to within six feet of the blue flag and then coolly sank the putt for a birdie, four points and final total of 41pts.
Muckian had gone out in 21pts thanks to a four-point birdie at the fourth and three other three-point holes and he picked three points at both the 12th and 16th holes to reach 38pts with two holes to go. But he could only finish with 40pts after a blank at 17 and two points at 18.
