This year was the turn of our El Paraíso Ladies to host the 2016 Western Liga Final. The Western Liga is a golf league comprised of the following golf clubs along the Costa del Sol: Alcaidesa, La Cañada, La Duquesa, El Paraíso, Guadalmina, Los Arqueros, LosNaranjos, Atalaya and Santa Maria. Each club plays each team at home and away throughout the calendar year. (Female players aged over 50 are eligible to play.)
El Paraíso acted as host team throughout the 2016 season.Western Liga Captain, Tricia Lawton and Liga Committee Members Bente Bay and Polly Dilasser worked hard during the entire season making sure the competitions ran smoothly, and preparing for the final. The Western Liga Final was held on Tuesday, November 29th with eight players from each of the participating clubs.
Stephanie Thomas, Lady Captain of El Paraiso and many ladies from the ladies section were instrumental in the smooth running of the final day which included an AM AM competition, lunch, and prizes.
The winners of the Western Liga 2016 were Los Naranjos. They were presented with a framed team photo as well as a trophy and wine on the day. Second place went to Guadalmina, and third to La Cañada. In 2017 the host club will be Alcaidesa and all of our lady golfers look forward to a great year and final party! But can they top this year ́s great El Paraíso Show? The Western Liga is yet another activity that makes El Paraíso the friendliest golf club on the Costa.
