The Golf Northland women's Champion of Champions tournament was held over the weekend with clubs around Northland sending their champions along to test their skills against the rest.

Set up around the challenging Mangawhai Golf Course, it was a test of attrition in all of the divisions.

While all competitors were out to put their name on their individual division trophies, there were club honours up for grabs as well in the teams event.

The Wellsford ladies consisting of Alayna Cox, Heather Thomas and Sue Hadfield were the best three on the day with Whangaroa's team coming in a close second.
