In the morning semi finals, Lesley Hendry beat former County Champion Alex Glennie (Kilmarnock Barassie) by one hole whilst Hannah Gaunt beat Liz Keohone (Loudoun Gowf) by 4 & 3.

In the final, the match was very close over the opening nine holes but Hendry edged ahead in the inward nine to close out Gaunt on the 15th green and secure the title.

At the conclusion of the final, Glasgow Golf Club Vice Captain Ian Lockhart presented prizes to the players who had enjoyed success during the championships, including the championship finalists and Rachael McQueen (Troon Ladies) - pictured right - who won the award for the best score in the strokeplay qualifying round played on Tuesday.
