The victory ended an unwanted streak following four semi-final losses in the last four years – the final win over Aberdovey bringing a second victory for Wrexham,
21 years after their previous success.
There was also a notable landmark for captain Pam Valentine, who captained Royal St David’s, Harlech, to success in 2010, the last time a north Wales club lifted the trophy.
Former Welsh amateur champion Lea-Anne Bramwell led the way, unbeaten at the top of the order, backed up by a strong team performance with Lucy Jones, Jo Nicholson and Elise Davies, while DorneTym and Valentine filled the fifth place in the team.
“Of all the lovely things golf has given me, this is one of the greatest personal joys in my golfing life,” said captain Valentine.
“In the whole event nobody beat a Wrexham player. It is a huge achievement, speaks volumes for the quality of their golf and the consistency.
“We have got the two vital ingredients for the Team Championships on our side – strength in depth and youth. The top four young players have done it all, along with two older ones who have come in and out of the team at the end.
“I have been a member of Wrexham the whole of my golfing life, so to be lady captain of Wrexham and captain them to win the Welsh Ladies Team Championship is amazing.”
