Summer Scotch Foursomes

04 August 2012Back

The summer tournament series at Almouj Golf continued this weekend with the Summer Scotch Foursomes. Scotch Foursomes, or Greensomes, is where players compete in pairs taking the best tee shot on each hole before completing the hole in Foursomes (alternate shots) format. Although selecting the best tee shot makes scoring a little easier the alternate shot format for the remainder of the hole can be quite challenging, players often spend most of the round apologising about where their partners have to play their next shot from!


Despite the difficulty of the format and the ever present Omani summer conditions the scoring was very good with two pairings matching or breaking the level par mark.


It was the lowest handicapped pair of Mike Bulliman and Adrian Bain who combined to produce the best round of the day with 37 Stableford points beating husband and wife duo Edward and Louise Daly into second place with 36 points.


The full scores were as follows;

No Name Points
1 Mike Bulliman & Adrian Bain 37
2 Louise Daly & Edward Daly 36
3 Andy Jones & Kim Robinson 32
4 Catherine Shackleton & Nathan Kendall 32
5 Geetsh Tamse & Kevin Wright 30
6 Danny Renihan & William Welsh 29
7 Soren Bostrup & Michael Horup 24

The next event in the Summer Schedule is an individual 9 hole Stableford to be played on the afternoon of the 9th August.
