Muirhead, the reigning women's world curling champion, defeated China's Bingyu Wang 8-3 in the championship final. The final game only took seven ends.
It was an excellent game for Muirhead's team as a whole. Four times the team from Stirling, Scotland picked up a deuce with the hammer and forced the team from China to a point when they were not throwing last rock.
The fact that the Autumn Gold Classic took place at all this year was sensational because there was significant damage to the club after the June floods that devastated the Calgary area. Calgary Curling Club program and events co-ordinator Dan Bubola said "everything at ice level was covered in mud" according to Al Cameron of the Canadian Curling Association.
The World Curling Tour will now move to Edmonton for the Shoot-out at the Saville Centre next weekend, where Calgary's Crystal Webster is the defending champion.
