The Women’s Championship was won by 2015 Champion, Kimberley Crawley (Maroochy River) who produced three strong rounds of 78-77-72 for a 54-hole total of 227 to secure the title. Standout was 11 year old Mary Golder of Dalby playing in her first Indigenous Championships and finishing runner-up.

The Senior’s Division saw Wondai member Noel Bird successful in the gross event with a three round total of 245, with Bill Glenbar (Murgon) claiming the Senior Nett Division with a three round total of 205.

Joseph Green (Gympie) took out the Overall Nett Prize with a three round score of 200, Michael Muller (Blackwater) was runner up two shots back on 202.
