The Open

July 20th 2013 - To mark the third major tournament in the golfing world calendar, Almouj Golf hosted our own tournament in the form of a Red, White and Blue Stableford.  The competition was run as an individual progressive stableford event, rotating the three different coloured teeing grounds over the course of 18 holes.  Both men and ladies played from the same tee boxes each hole with the ladies receiving three additional courtesy strokes to their course handicaps.

In theory the holes played from the red tees should have been the easier of the bunch, however this wasn't the case for third placed Geetesh Tamse who's run of form on the back nine holes with a birdie on the par 4 13th after driving the green carded 35 points.  Quite the opposite round was had by Ahmed Kamel who claimed second spot, edging Geetesh with 36 points, put together a solid front 9 of 20 points only to slip somewhat on the closing holes opening the gap for the winner.  An impressively consistent round from Roger Beaumont, secured the win, scoring on every hole to total 40 points.  Following the game plan, Roger took advantage of the shorter holes with the majority of his 3 point holes coming from the red teeing ground.

The top 10 scores were as follows:
