Ayrshire Golf Association - Handicap League 2023

alt textBelleisle were drawn in Group B along with Troon St Meddans, Alton (Ardeer) and Prestwick St Cuthberts.  Fixtures were to be completed by 16 July, with the 7 Group winners along with the best Runner Up, going forward to the Quarter Final knockout stage.

The final results are shown in the table below.

Big shout to our best performing players with Gordon McAndrew 4 wins out of 5, Alan Tierney 2.5 out of 4, Simon Comley and Tim Knight both 2.5 out of 5, and Steven McLeish 2 out of 4, Callum Byers 1.5 out of 2 and Tommy Gallacher 1 win out of 1.

All games were played in a competitive and friendly spirit, and all of our team enjoyed the matches, especially those players who were new to the League.  There is a thought about playing home matches on a Sunday next season to allow better hospitality to be offered, and the opinions from the players who played this season will be sought.
