After almost perfect golfing weather, what would have been considered only a breeze in a normal Machrihanish round, wreaked havoc with the scoring.
The Erskine Shield was secured by Alan McLean with a net 73.
Ann Gallacher clinched the ladies title in the fourth consecutive ladies championship with a total of 239 after leading going into the second round.
Ann slipped back entering the final round one shot adrift of runner-up Catherine Dobbie who finished on 242.
Ann’s final round of 79 saved the match, but the honour of the lowest score of the championship was Lorna Armour’s with a wonderful 77 in round 2.
