Auckland has beaten defending champions North Harbour 4 - 1 in the final of the women's Interprovincial golf tournament in Whakatane.

The win extends Auckland's lead at the top of the standings to four wins ahead of Bay of Plenty.

on the all-time wins list.

In what was a repeat of the dramatic 2009 final at The Grange in Auckland, the large gallery that walked the links of Whakatane hoped that the result would hinge on the final match between superstar teens Lydia Ko and Cecilia Cho.

It didn't, as comprehensive wins to Larissa Eruera, Wen Yung Keh and Jesse Hamilton put the title for Interprovincial glory beyond reach.

The superior depth of Auckland, who went undefeated all week, came to the fore in the final to secure their 20th title in the competition.
