Baberton and Duddingston were the weekend winners on the team front in Capital golf,

Making home advantage count, Baberton lifted the Edinburgh Ladies Inter-Club title with victory over defending champions Broomieknowe.

Both matches in the final of the double foursomes event went the distance before ending in favour of the hosts.

The top Baberton pairing of Karen Marshall and Fiona De Vries finished one up on Hannah Scott and Sandra Hennessey.

And it was the same outcome at the back as Wendy Nicholson and Mandy Dougal edged out Kate McIntosh and Katherine Anderson.

Earlier in the day, Baberton had beaten Kingsknowe in the semi-finals, where Broomieknowe came out on top against Liberton.

Duddingston’s title triumph was recorded by a men’s trio comprising of David Miller (69), Gary Thomson (71) and Derrick Williams (73) in the Lothians Team Tournament at Kingsknowe.

With a six-over-par aggregate of 213, they finished a shot ahead of Harburn while Royal Burgess were four strokes further back in third.

Harburn’s total was helped by Chris Curran’s best-of-the-day 67, two less than both Miller and also former Scottish Amateur champion Simon Mackenzie for Gullane.

George Heriot’s FP claimed won the Non Course Owning event with 228, one less than runners-up Royal Bank of Scotland.
