Lauris Kentwell's golf game is ageing like fine wine.

On Thursday Kentwell clinched the Port Kembla Ladies Club Championship - 16 years after her last victory.

It was shades of the great Jack Nicklaus storming to US Masters glory in 1986, 11 years after his last win at Augusta.

Kentwell has now won five club championships.

"Lauris is a competitor and never stopped believing she could win another club championship," Port Kembla Ladies spokeswoman Sue Fitzgibbon said.

"She was a very deserved champion."

Kentwell played consistently well over four rounds, finishing with a tournament-low 72-hole score of 354.

Narelle Wilson was celebrating after breaking through for her maiden victory in division two. Wilson's winning score was 401.

Pat Kelly prevailed in division three with a total of 451. Kelly was the club's division two winner in 2004.

Nerida Edmonds won the two-day veterans event, shooting 182, while Kentwell added to her success by taking out the super veterans division with a two-day score of 175.
