David Higgins (Waterville Golf Links) and home club professional, John Murray, topped the leaderboard at the Malahide Pro-Am.
The duo posted rounds of two under par 69 to finish a shot ahead of Michael McGeady (Evolve Golf Coaching) and Damian Mooney (Damian Mooney Golf).
Windy conditions made the scoring difficult at the parkland venue in Co. Dublin with just four players breaking par.
Higgins rattled off nine straight pars on the front nine to turn in 35. He dropped a shot at the par four 12th but birdies at the 14, 15th and 18th saw him home in two under 34.
Murray, who started at the 10th, made local knowledge count as he turned in three under 33 with birdies at the 13th, 15th and 17th. He struggled to find birdies of the back nine and posted eight pars and bogey at the par four fourth to come home in one over 36.
Higgins also walked away with the team prize, guiding amateur partners Alan Ward, Mark Dunne and Trevor Connolly to success with 92 points.
