The youngster became the club’s youngest ever champion after coming from behind to snatch the title from Tina Broadley.

Broadley took the lead with a gross score of 78 with Mason four shots behind, but the 14-year-old played some excellent golf in the afternoon to chalk up 161 and claim the title.

Tina’s net score saw her take the Handicap trophy.

In Division Two, a four-hole medal play-off between Alice Greatwood and Liz Smith was needed to determine the winner of the trophy for the best gross score, as both players had returned scores of 194.
