The Matlock Golf Club's 2017 Open Pairs Competition took place on Sunday 24th September 2017, with 24 pairs from clubs across Derbyshire taking part. The event was sponsored by A. M. International Agencies, the Chesterfield-based toy and games wholesaler.

The 24 pairs were drawn into eight groups of three and played each of the other pairs in their group over 15 ends, before the eight group winners took part in the quarter-finals over 15 ends. The semi-finals and final were played as conventional 21-up matches.

The four semi-finalists were Terry Bosworth and Ian Woodward (both of Burton), Richard Evans (Matlock Bath) and Marjorie Evans (Whitworth Park), Mandy Wilks (Bolsover Castle) and Clive Almond (Highfield), and David Vardy and Steven Ward (both of Matlock Park). The final was held between Terry & Ian and Mandy & Clive, with Terry Bosworth and Ian Woodward winning the final.

Terry and Ian received the first prize of £100, while Mandy and Clive received £50. The two losing semi-finalists each received £25. The event also raised £80 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
