The Busselton Ladies' Gold Club has a new club champion after it held its recent championship comprising of two qualifying stroke rounds and match play finals.

Marion Fraser took the honours ahead of last year's champion Sharon Koch winning 5/4 on the 32nd hole.

The 36-hole Champion Final was battled out between nine-times winner Koch and Fraser, who was edged out by just one stroke in last year's championship.

Koch took the lead on hole one but was matched on the next hole by Fraser, who then jumped to an early lead of five holes up at the halfway mark.

Despite a few jitters in the second half, Fraser steadied and did not allow Koch back in to come out victor on the 32nd hole.

Fraser is now on the Ladies' Club Champion Honour Board for the first time.
