Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club Visits Almouj Golf (Aug '12)With the summer drawing to a close and the temperatures receding just a little, on 31 August Almouj Golf was pleased to play host to a group of visiting golfers from fellow Dubai Golf-operated club Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club.

Under the watchful supervision of Dubai Creek Professionals Kenny Monaghan and Craig Waddell, the Dubai Creek members had a practice round on the Almouj course on arrival to warm up for the next day's social matches. The 7,310 yard links layout and design of Almouj Golf impressed the Dubai Creek players and some very flattering comparisons to other prestigious links courses around the world were made.

In the spot prize division it was Dave Gowans from Dubai Creek who took the nearest the pin on hole 4, Jamie Wilson from Almouj Golf matching his achievement on the tricky 14th. The longest drive of the day was struck by Almouj Member Kevin Wright.

The social event was a resounding success and one that is sure to be repeated over a return fixture later in the year. Friendships and rivalries were formed within the Dubai Golf family and the message passed on to the golfing community of Dubai that there is a hidden gem to be found just over the mountains.
