Gaining victories over Wallasey, Northop, Heswall, Portal, Denbigh and Mere saw them through to the last 16.
Deirdre and Jan said: "We are very proud to have won this trophy after 11 rounds of gruelling and close competition and are very grateful to the Sponsors, Daily Mail, for their support to ensure that a truly massive event is very well run, and Marriott Hotels for their hospitality during the Final stages.
"We would also like to thank our caddies, fellow Lady members Caroline Berry and Margaret Nelson, who were very supportive and who, coincidentally, will be defending the title for Bromborough GC in 2017."
