Jenny McRae added to her exceptional winning streak at the Horsham Golf Club on Thursday, taking home her 18th consecutive ladies club championship.
McRae, playing off a handicap of five, shot a 26-over 322 across the four rounds to finish 12 strokes in front of second placed Tracey Hobbs.
Hobbs, also with a handicap of five, was within touching distance heading into the final round just five strokes behind McRae.
But McRae showed her experience as a 21-time A Grade club champion and was too composed in the final round. Her score of 80 capped off a remarkably consistent four rounds of golf, as she shot between 79-83 in every outing.
McRae said it was a tense final round.
"Golf is one of those games where you can never feel comfortable about it at any stage," McRae said.
"I knew it was going to be a battle and Tracey put a lot of pressure on me."
McRae said it was one of the more nervous final rounds she had played at the event.
"Perhaps in the past I may have gone into the last round with a bigger lead and felt like I had to just play a reasonable round of golf and stay out of trouble," McRae said.
"But that certainly wasn't the case this year. There were a couple of girls in the field who have been playing really good golf.
"Tracey was playing exceptionally well and she made me dig a lot deeper."
In B Grade, Kathy Strudwick blew away the competition with consistency. Strudwick was the only player in B Grade to shoot four rounds in the 90s as she claimed the win with a gross score of 375, 14 strokes in front of runners-up Donna O'Connor.
In the tightest race of the tournament, Joan Williams claimed victory in C Grade by just two strokes.
Williams held her nerve against the pressure of runners-up Alison Radcliffe. Radcliffe shot 106 in the final round to make matters interesting, but Williams' 112 was enough to hold onto the lead and claim victory with a gross score of 437.
Nett winners were June Crabtree in A Grade with 301, Donna O'Connor in B Grade with 307 and Marj Reinheimer in C Grade with 318.
