San Javier Golf Society Inaugural ‘Roy Herbert Memorial Trophy’ Individual Stableford qualifying competition at La Serena on Monday 7th May

There was a full turnout as expected for this new event on our calendar to commemorate our ex-captain and long-time member Roy Herbert, who was much loved and is very sadly missed. Roy’s widow Linda donated the trophy and the prizes to the winner and runner-up and was on hand to present them afterwards. She herself was presented with flowers by our president Barry Butterworth on behalf of the society.

Trophy winner Mick Hardy with Linda Herbert.

There were some very high scores returned, most notably and very fittingly, by Mick Hardy (a good friend of Roy).

The winners on the day were:

Division 1

First – David Archer with 40 points

Second – Paul Newman with 35 points

Third – Paul Matthews with 31 points
