The first semi-final was between Willesley Park and Luffenham Heath with Willesley coming out on top to qualify for the final. The second semi-final between Lingdale and Charnwood was a hard fought match with Lingdale eventually winning to qualify for the final round.
The final between Willesley Park and Lingdale was another close contest and a display of high quality golf with Willesley Park running out as the eventual winners of the 2015 Baxter Trophy winning 4 and 2.
