Member Guest Tournament
the opening of all 18 holes of The Championship Course at Almouj
Golf a Member Guest Event was held on Friday 1st
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 Fullerton 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
Perhaps the happiest golfer on the day was MB Jeoung, Mr
Jeoung's name was drawn from all 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.
