April Monthly Medal

Almouj Golf saw the worst conditions of the year so far on the morning of the 19th April, however by the time the first group teed off in the April Monthly Medal the weather could not have been more sublime. The golf course stood up well to the heavy overnight rain with little or no sign of what had occurred earlier in the day.

As Almouj continues to move towards its full 18 holes the competitors were faced with 7 holes from the front and 7 holes from the back 9 making up the par 56 14 hole course.

Teeing off in the first group of the day were Rob Edwards and Aaron O'Hara, both returning a gross 65 which was not bettered throughout the day. It was ultimately Rob Edwards who took the honours with a better back 7 holes of 32 strokes against O'Hara's 35.

The clear winner in the Men's net division playing off a course handicap of 24 was John Petersen, his 56 coming in 4 strokes better than a large group of players scoring net 60.

Making a regular visit to the winner's podium in the Ladies division was Sarah Morris whose steady round of gross 68 playing off a course handicap of 17 produced a fine net 55.

The returned scores for the day will be entered into the OGC Order of Merit where players within a club can measure their performance not only against fellow members but also those who play at one of the other clubs within Oman. The updated order of merit will be released by the OGC shortly.

The next event on Almouj Golf's calendar is the St Georges Stableford on the 27th April, entries will close at midnight on the 22nd.
