Lorraine Rowley (Sea View) overcame Cath Bellemore (Nedlands) to clinch the women’s North title, in an entertaining end to the day’s proceedings.

Players were challenged throughout the weekend, with temperatures soaring above 36 degrees in particularly trying conditions.

Their victories earn them the right to play the championship course at Lake Karrinyup in three weeks’ time, giving the players the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of world’s best.

The tournament itself is already in its second year, capturing the attention of the golfing world in 2017 with the exhilarating format. The event culminates in a six-hole sudden death match play, with the exciting concept given an endorsement over the weekend from all club golfers.
