John Burrow (27) scored 39, Roger Steade (25) 37, Martin Saunders (23) 36 and Paul Edlin (26) 35.
The stableford event was held over the course’s back-nine holes only due to the wet weather.

Meanwhile, the inter-club winter league involving four teams boiled up to an exciting finish at Burlish Park, Stourport.
