HARROGATE B posted a challenging target early on in Harrogate Union's Ladies Bronze Division Team Championship at their home club to take the title for the first time since 2009.

Nineteen teams contested the event, which saw many players struggle with the heat and humidity, and the tight, tree-lined course.

The four Harrogate B members played in the opening groups and, with three scores to count, posted a total of 306.

Maggie Gobbi, a late substitute, shot 99 and led the individual leader board for most of the day.

Pannal A came closest to denying Harrogate B, but finished six shots back on 312, followed by Masham A in third place, a further three shots adrift.

Lindsey Holt ultimately clinched the Individual Championship Trophy with a fine round of 96 and Gobbi had to be content with the prize for the best net round, 75.

Another member of the winning Harrogate team, Liz Haw, was runner-up in the gross section, and Sue Ibbotson finished second in the net event.

Oakdale A triumphed in the Net Team event, with Pannal A again finishing runners-up.
