The ladies were allowed two bisques to be taken to help win a hole and the gents were off the white tees.

There was an atmosphere of friendly rivalry and much banter, with the ladies intent on winning back the trophy won by the gents last year.

The score, however, was very close with both sides winning three games to halve the match.
