Jasmine Mackintosh is MVP of tournament with six wins

Aberdeenshire beat P and K 8-1 to win

North Divisional title at Strathmore

Aberdeenshire will go to the Scottish women's county golf finals at Kilmacolm GC, Renfrewshire in September as North Divisional champions for the second time in three years.
Without the services of Curtis Cup player Shannon McWilliam (Aboyne), they overpowered title-holders Perth and Kinross 8-1 in the final match between the two teams with 100 per cent winning records after two days' play at Strathmore Golf Centre, near Alyth.
Shire took a grip on the outcome when they won the morning foursomes 3-0, leaving them needing only two wins from the final six singles for victory.
But the rampant Aberdeenshire did more than that. They took the singles 5-1 for an emphatic victory margin.
Shire's top player was Hazlehead teenager Jasmine Mackintosh (pictured) who won all six of her ties, which made her the MVP of the tournament. But she was strongly supported by Sammy Leslie and Kim Beveridge who both finished with 5.5pt out of six and 14-year-old Carmen Griffiths, Aberdeenshire's youngest ever county champion, who won four out of six.
Shannon McWilliam will be available for the county finals from September 14 to 16.
Northern Counties, who used the same six players over the three days, avoided the wooden spoon by finishing third, thanks to a 7.5-1.5 victory over pointless Angus.
Hannah McCook was Northern Counties' top performer with five wins out of six.
Aberdeenshire won the North Divisional title two years ago at Edzell but finished runners-up in the county finals held at Aboyne that year.
So who else is through to the county finals? Renfrewshire were first qualifiers by winning the West championship. The East team championship (East Lothian, Midlothian, Fife, Stirling and Clackmannan will be held from June 25-27.
The South jamboree will be held at Wigtownshire GC on June 23-24.
