|Captain June presents Lesley Lloyd with the Championship Trophy|
The first Championship Semi-Final saw Liz Stewart (Greenburn) taken to the 18th hole by Liz Keohone (Loudon Gowf ) in what was an exciting tense game.

The Championship Final saw Lesley Lloyd take an early lead and was 3 up after 9.
Liz Stewart, however fought back quickly to be only 1 down after 12, including a birdie 4 at the 11th. However Lesley kept her nerve to end the match on the 17th, winning by 3 & 1.
In the first Stewart Trophy Semi-Final, Pam Mather (Cowglen) and Morag Little (Whitecraigs) had an adventurous ding-dong battle, but unfortunately Morag played a wrong ball out of the trees on the 17th to lose 2 & 1.
In the other Semi-Final, the much travelled Janet Buchanan (Dalmally) had a great game with Brenda Conway (Renfrew) which went on to the 19th where Brenda emerged victorious – and very thirsty and hungry !

The final of the Stewart Handicap Trophy was then between Pam Mather and Brenda Conway.
Pam was up against it from early on, she won the first but Brenda then won the next three holes with long single putts.
The match continued this way with Brenda putting extremely well throughout and making it really difficult for Pam to win or half holes. The final result was 7 & 6 for Brenda.
Liz Stewart (Greenburn) beat Liz Keohone (Loudoun Gowf) 1up
