Arthur Ziadie Trophy - The overal team Championship of the 2015 Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships.
This years Championships have been slightly disappointing in a Barbados perspective. The Barbados team ended up as 7th with only the Cayman Islands and the Turks and Caicos Islands behind. It's a massive climb up to this years Champions from Trinidad & Tobago.
The Barbados team have fought hard for every point but there are certainly huge room for improvements within the team. The Mid-Amateurs and Seniors have done a solid tournament and individuals like the team Captain James Johnson will always deliver on a high standard but the team need more to be able to compete at this level.
