The ladies’ event, also played over 27 holes, needed an ex­tra hole play off be­fore Lynette Lud­low and Racheal Hendry claimed the ti­tle. Neta Thouard and Lor­raine Evans, un­suc­cess­ful in the play-off, did how­ever end up with the best nett for the ladies’ event. Thanks to An­der­sens Car­pets for spon­sor­ing the men’s foursomes and to Lyn Lud­low and Mandy Benussi for spon­sor­ing the ladies’ foursomes event.
