May Madness 4 Ball Better Ball

28 May 2012Back

 May Madness

Friday 25th May saw Almouj Golf members compete for the first time over all 18 holes of the Championship Course. To mark the occasion and to allow the golfers to enjoy their experience without overly concerning themselves with their performance it was decided to host a 4 Ball Better Ball Stableford competition.

Although the temperatures were seasonally high the humidity seemed to abate, almost as though just for a day Oman's climate gave the golfers enough respite to truly appreciate their new course.

As you would expect in this format the scoring was very good with many pairings exceeding 40 points. Finishing third were husband and wife pairing Dale and Sarah Morris whose total of 44 points was bettered only on a count back over the last 9 holes by another husband and wife pairing Louise and Edward Daly.

Taking full advantage of the Better Ball format were Nick Smith and Iain Liversage, both played well but somehow managed to dovetail so that their best individual holes did not coincide, this resulted in a fantastic winning score of 45 points.
