Tristan Leonard wins Silver Salver

Irene Country Club was in great condition and proved to be a good test for the players at the 2023 GNGU Silver Salver.   However, Irene’s own Tristan Leonard showed true form with a convincing win, finishing on -14 for the event, 7 shots ahead of nearest competitors.

Thank you to Jondo and Duca Del Cosma for your contributions to the tournament.

To Irene Country Club staff, Committee and members, thank you for giving up the course for the event.  We also appreciate the hospitality and assistance in ensuring we hosted a very successful tournament.
A final thank you to all participants for supporting the event.
