KYLIE McCormack and David Webber are the 2005 BITS Golf Club champions after shining at the club's closed championships last weekend.
McCormack was in sensational form, shooting a four-round total of 349 to collect the ladies crown, while Webber's impressive score of 296 helped him take home the men's title.
McCormack has just come back into the BITS golfing fold after a break and announced her return in fine style, winning by four shots from Hayley Egner.
Webber on the other hand was dominant, streeting the men's field to win by a massive 14 shots from Jason Britton.
Josh Bevan's consistent play helped him to the men's A grade nett title, while Sally Haynes picked up the A grade ladies nett.
Barry Collis and Julie Burton are the B grade gross title winners, after top performances.
In similar style to Webber in A grade, Collis was in outstanding form, winning by 19 shots from Larry Cox. Collis celebrated the double with his score good enough to win the men's nett title as well.
Burton came out trumps by just three shots after a classic battle with clubmate Marcia Hunt in the B grade ladies gross. In a popular result, Ivy Trewin was the B grade ladies nett winner after her low score of 293.
The 'bushranger' Wally Clarke certainly saved his best for the club championships, winning the C grade double.
Clarke was in magnificent touch, beating Les Read by seven shots in the gross competition and edging out Don Brown by two shots to score the double.
Meanwhile the C grade ladies gross was a close contest which was taken out by Vicki Harris from Karen Walker.
Harris could be proud of her play. Like counterpart Clarke, she took home the C grade double.
