Brampton Park duo James Reeson and Owen Davies completed a notable double-success in the Midland Closed Championships last weekend.
Reeson topped the leaderboard at Hinckley GC in Leicestershire to take individual honours with a 36-hole tally of 143 – one over par.
He carded a new course-record 67 in the opening round and maintained his advantage with a 76 in the second round to lift the trophy at the first attempt.
Brampton Park clubmate Davies produced rounds of 76 and 81 for a 15-over total of 151 and a share of 28th place in the individual standings.
But their combined total of +16 was enough to secure the team prize by seven shots from Enville GC, with Atherstone GC a further five shots back in third.
The latest successes continue a fine run for the Brampton Park pair.
They retained their Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union Foursomes crown at Ely GC a fortnight earlier after fighting it out between themselves for the Hunstanton Bowl title in April.
