The players, led by the eventual champion Rebecca Artis, were full of praise: “It’s a great golf course,” said Artis after a final round of 66 gave her a winning score of six under par, two strokes ahead of overnight leader Suzann Pettersen, who shot a 74 on Sunday.
“It’s in great condition and it’s been a fabulous event. The crowds are good out here and it’s a nice event leading into the British Open,” added the Australian, who was one of 22 nationalities represented in the Championship’s field.
“We are delighted with our first visit to Dundonald,” said Martin Gilbert, Chief Executive of Aberdeen Asset Management. “Dundonald Links is a great course, and the crowds over the three days were amazing. It exceeded all our expectations.”
