The first two rounds were played as a teams format, with one captain, two other professionals and one amateur combining their scores. Team Jessica Korda (also including Tereza Melecka, Noora Komulainen and polo player Malcolm Borwick) were victorious in this tournament within a tournament, carding a 33-under-par total to secure a one-shot win over Team Pauline Roussin.

Nelly, the reigning Olympics champion, came from seven strokes behind her sister with a closing five-under 67 to win with a 13-under total, one shot better than joint second-placed Ana Peláez Triviño (Spain), Pauline Roussin (France) and Jessica Korda.
