The South Manchester club won the Team Gross, as well as the Singles Gross, Singles Nett Runner-up, Fourball Gross, Combined Singles & Fourball Gross and Team Singles Nett.

Sarah Calmonson from Dunham Forest clinched the Singles Gross with an excellent round of 86.

Moor Allerton won three trophies – Fourball Gross Runners-up, Fourball Nett and Team Fourball Nett, while Edmondstown from Dublin claimed the Singles Nett, Combined Singles and Fourball Nett and the Team Nett.
