In inclement weather, Irena Brown’s path to victory was eased by a birdie on seven and success earned her four points in the golfer of the year competition. Janet Taylor and Alison Barker, who birdied 15, were second and third.

Linda Bell won the medal with a nett 69 and was first to qualify for the Helen Gray Trophy. Alison Barker came second and Jean Kirk third after a card play off.
