Member Guest Tournament

04 June 2012Back

Member Guest GroupTo celebrate the opening of all 18 holes of The Championship Course at Almouj Golf a Member Guest Event was held on Friday 1st June.

For many of the Almouj members this was their first competitive outing over the full course and as a gesture of appreciation each member was entitled to being a complimentary guest to experience the challenging links layout.

In an effort to avoid the temperature the event was run as a shotgun start with all players assembling at 7:45am before making their way to the course for an 8:00am start.

In the on course competitions Almouj member Alina Jambeau won the Ladies Nearest the Pin on the picturesque 8th hole while visiting golfer Adrienne Member Guest YvonneFullerton picked up the Ladies Longest Drive on hole 17. On the challenging par 3 11th hole Alex Borges won the Men's Nearest the Pin and Andy Jones out hit the rest of the field to win the Men's Longest Drive on hole 16.

The feedback from the guests regarding the golf course was fantastic and despite the challenging conditions the scoring was very respectable. The second place guest with 30 points was Sajali Suib and the winning guest with a fine 33 points was Zunaidi Kadir. For the members who are more familiar with the course layout it was Yvonne Welling who took second place with 34 points and winning the tournament by some margin was Mohammed Fauzi Adnan with a fantastic 40 points.

Perhaps the happiest golfer on the day was MB Jeoung, Mr Jeoung's name was drawn from aMember Guest Mohd Fauzill of the participating guests winning himself a 1 month pass for Almouj Golf to use all of the facilities including the Championship Course.

The next milestone at Almouj Golf will be the floodlit Par 3 Course which is scheduled to open in June and will give golfers the opportunity to continue to play through the summer in the cooler temperatures after sunset.
