The final round of the women's championship and weekend pennant competitions were played at Rangitikei Golf Course on Sunday the 2nd July, after the rain affected that round in March at Ekektahuna. Pennants this year had two postponed rounds due to inclement weather.
The Manawatu Championship team of Tania Hook and Mudra Lakhani won decisively beating the Palmerston North team. During the season the Manawatu girls were only beaten once back in round 3, otherwise they had a very good year.The final results in the Championship division were: Manawatu 1st, Levin A 2nd and Wanganui 3rd.
The weekend pennant competition, played off handicap was won by Taihape narrowly over Castlecliff and Pahiatua third. Going into the last round Castlecliff held the lead after being defaulted to in round 8 and receiving maximum points. With the bye on Sunday they had to wait for results from Taihape vs Palmerston North game. A win or draw for Taihape would put them into first place - but with a loss they would stay 2nd overall. The Taihape pairing of Lesley Hardwidge and Ngaire Bond secured the win.
