Top qualifier Linzi Allan (West Kilbride) defeated last years winner, Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies), on the 18th hole to win her first Ayrshire Ladies county title. The final was played over Glasgow Golf Club, Gailes Links in the best playing conditions of the week.
It was a close game with the first 3 holes beihalved in pars. The first birdie came with a 2 from Connie at the short 6th where she went one ahead. The game was squared at the next with a par from Linzi who then went on to sink a 30 foot putt for birdie on the 9th to turn 1 up. Winning 2 of the next 5 holes Linzi was then 3 up and a half in 3's at the 15th left her dormie. Defending champion Connie then produced a par and a birdie to take the match to the 18th hole. Both girls were in the greenside bunker in 2 and made good recoveries but Linzi's par putt was good enough to secure the title.
