Jess Dixon won the Ladies' Championship for the fifth time on Sunday with a hard-fought 3 & 1 win over 13-year-old Nellie Ong. Jess, who plays off two, is only 22 herself but she had to play some of her best golf to overcome teenager Nellie. It was nip and tuck for the first nine holes and remained all square. Jess took the lead on the back nine and held on to win on the 17th green after a fine contest.

The men's Scratch KO final saw Matt West beat Kevin Cooke 5 & 4 to win the Treetops Trophy for the first time.
Dean Scott won two trophies over the weekend. On Saturday he partnered Kath Malvern to beat Mark Tudor & Sue Pitcher on the 19th hole to win the Keiths Coasters for the mixed foursomes. Mark & Sue fought back from two down after four to be all square after nine. Mark sank a 10-foot putt on the 18th to level the match once again. At the first extra hole it was Dean & Kath who grabbed the victory.
On Sunday Dean beat Josh Chamberlain in the 36-hole final of the Cowan & Oliver Trophy. The top eight gross scores in the Sidgwick Trophy in June qualify for the knock-out stages and Dean emerged as the winner.
The men's pairs final was won by Rob Taylor & Matt Harben, 4 & 3 against Norrie Dickson & Brian Youngs. Rob & Matt were two under par for their better-ball after nine holes and two more birdies over the next six holes secured victory.
The men's matchplay KO final saw Ross Sanford beat Andy Beard to win the Cock Pheasant Trophy and the plate competition was won by John Ward, beating Will Brown in the final.
The Krumrine Trophy involves four men and four women who qualify for the knock-out stages and in an all-female final Jan Bone beat Barbara Bailey at the 20th hole. Barbara also lost in the Ladies' Handicap Cup final, losing 4 & 3 to Sue Saunders.
All the finals were played in good spirit and there was some excellent golf played over the weekend.
