The duo won with an impressive 37 stableford points, in the 17th year of the popular competition.
Peter Dean's 76 less 13 handicap net 63 was enough to see him lift the Hastings Cup 18-hole Handicap Medal, seeing off runner-up Sid Seward, 81 less 15 handicap, net 66.
Dean had dropped seven shots after 12 holes, but responded with a string of pars and a birdie on the 16th.
