Lewis Gebert battled through testing weather at the weekend to secure his first A Grade men's championship at the Horsham Golf Club.
Gebert shot 290 across the four rounds to clinch the championship, nine strokes ahead of second place Nick Thomson.
"It's hard to explain, it's definitely a good feeling, and I'm happy I got there in the end," Gebert said.
"The championship was sort of the main goal for me, and it has been for a few years now. It's what everyone wants playing at the Horsham Golf Club.
"I've been searching for it for a while, and I'm happy it's finally sort of happened for me."
The 20-year-old was in a good position before the final weekend, after a below-par 68 in the second round.
Despite holding a seven-stroke lead heading into the fourth round, Gebert said he wasn't sure he'd come out the club's champion.
"I was pretty nervous heading into the final round. I had a small buffer, but I was still pretty nervous," he said.
"I wasn't really used to that sort of pressure or that situation."
Gebert said while the weather was difficult, it wasn't a unique challenge.
"The good thing about that sort of weather is that everyone has got to play in it and if it affects your game it's probably going to do the same for everyone else," he said.
In the intermediate grade, Aaron Madin benefited from strong showings in the first two rounds to win with a gross score of 338.
Damien Thomson secured the B Grade championship with a consistent performance. Thomson shot 91, 90, 90 and 91 across the four rounds to win with a gross score of 362.
The tightest finish of the men's championships was in C Grade, where Peter Brennan claimed victory by just three strokes.
Runner-up Ian Fechner shot a competitive 91 in the final round to make for a tense finish, but Brennan held out to win with a gross score of 396.
Nett winners were Nick Thomson in A Garde with 216, Simon Hobbs in Intermediate with 218, Darryl McCrae in B Grade with 227 and Rob Johns in C Grade with 230.
