The first game of 2023 saw 28 players take on La Finca Golf Course at nearly 5943 meters this course has been designed for tournaments. The natural setting provides majestic views of lakes, trees and mountains but it also challenges and makes the game more exciting, including the challenging island green on 5th.


The weather was sunny and warm which made the day very enjoyable for everyone.


Today’s winner was Dave Slightham with 39 pts and therefore winning the Paul Gibson Trophy. In second place was the day’s sponsor Paul Gibson with 37 pts and in third place was Gordon McLagen.


Nearest the pins winners were Hole 3 Gordon McClagen, Hole 6 Gill Ludkiewicz, Hole 13 Iain Lyall and Hole 16 Bill Stobo. Three players also shared a very healthy twos pot.


We would again like to thank the Sports Complex for providing us with our after-match refreshments.


The presentation was made to today’s winners by this year’s Captain Iain Lyall who also took the opportunity to welcome another two new members to the society.
