Right from the start, it was evident that this match would be a clash of titans, with both teams showing no intention of backing down.

And, with Michelle holding the prestigious title of women's club champion, there was no doubt that the competition was going to be fierce from the get-go.

The first hole was a draw, setting the stage for an intense competition., but Michelle and Janet didn't let that slow them down.

They rallied, winning the second hole and never looked back. Their determination and skill carried them through, hole after hole, until they clinched a spectacular 7&5 victory on the 13th hole.

The buzz continued as the men teed off for their final showdown and, with 32 pairs whittled down to the last two, the stage was set for an epic clash.

In one corner was the formidable duo of Javan Argent and David Jackson up against the father-son team of Jason and William Rudkin.

With Javan and David's impressive track record of two previous wins, the competition was bound to be fierce.

As the match unfolded, the tension mounted with each burst of rain and swing of the club.

By the time they reached the ninth hole, the Rudkin duo found themselves trailing by just one shot.

But, rather than letting that deter them, they dug deep, their determination visible in every conversation and every stroke.

The mental fortitude of both pairs was truly remarkable as they battled it out all the way to the 17th hole.

And then, in a moment of pure skill and precision, William Rudkin sunk the 20-foot winning putt, sparking jubilant celebrations for the family.
