The first semi final will be a re-run of the 2013 final of the competition. 2012 and 2013 winner Steven McEwan (Caprington), who this weekend won the Caprington Club Championship by breaking the course record with a 63 then equaling it in the second round, booked his place in the Champion of Champions semi final with a 4&3 home win over Andy Carroll (Drongan). In the semi  final Steven will be up against the title holder, Craig Hamilton (Ballochmyle), who beat Stuart Miller (Kilmarnock Barassie) by 3&2 at Ballochmyle in their quarter final tie.

2018 title winner Paul Denim (Loudoun) had a 5&4 away win against Sam Findlater (Braehead) in the quarter finals, to set up a semi final match with Gordon Munro (Caprington), who beat Scott McIlwraith (Prestwick St Cuthbert) at the first extra hole in their quarter final tie, over the St Cuthbert course, and in doing so kept the possibility of an all Caprington final this year alive.
