Almouj Golf hosts inaugural The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal
Muscat, September 24 2012 - Last week, Almouj Golf hosted the
inaugural Monthly Medal competition sponsored by The Chedi Muscat,
the first of 12 monthly golf competitions in association with The
Chedi Muscat which will run throughout 2012 and 2013 golfing
The Almouj Golf course was in very good shape for the first of
the series of competitions, with the harsh summer temperatures
easing and a breeze coming in from the Sea of Oman. The pin
placements proudly displayed The Chedi Muscat emblem and were
challenging, as you would expect for the marque monthly competition
where the score is kept by counting strokes per round and totaling
them to find the winning score of lowest strokes.
Troy Hart, Vice-President of Asset Management at The Wave,
Muscat, commented: "We are delighted to have the support of The
Chedi Muscat for our Monthly Medal competitions, and we believe
that the standing and reputation of The Chedi Muscat with the
world-class quality of Almouj Golf is a perfect match. We are truly
proud of the association and of what it allows us to offer to our
Almouj Golf membership."
York Brandes, General Manager at The Chedi Muscat, said: "Almouj
Golf and The Chedi Muscat both provide an unrivalled lifestyle
experience. Our exclusive partnership for the Monthly Medal
competitions at Almouj Golf is another way in which we can give the
best of the leisure world to Almouj Golf members, The Chedi Muscat
guests and visitors."
In the first competition's net division Robert Daniel, playing
off a handicap of 8, took the honours with a fine net 72 which
placed Lee O'Donoghue into second with a close net score of 73.
Aaron O'Hara secured six successive pars on the back nine to take
the gross title with a solid 78.
The ladies division was well contested and an in-form Yvonne
Welling took the prize with a net 73 after a very well-played back
9 which put Catherine Shackleton's close score of net 74 into
Jamie Wilson recorded the only "two" of the day and as such was
the happy recipient of the substantial pot of Titleist golf balls.
This achievement was made even more impressive as his "two" came at
hole number 2, Almouj Golf's longest Par 3 hole measuring over 200
The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal will be played each month over
