The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal for November

02 November 2013Back

The ChediNovember 2nd 2013 - With the course still in immaculate condition from the National Bank of Oman Challenge Tour Event the week prior the eager field took to the links for The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal for November keen to experience the course as it had been played by the Pros.

The Challenge Tour Event had certainly captured the interest of the Almouj Golf Membership as the November Medal recorded the highest number of entries since The Chedi Muscat began their support of the tournament in September 2012.

Making light of the speedy putting surfaces and punishing rough was 23 handicap Mike Reed, a regular in members tournaments Mike put together a fine round with halves of 49 and 44 to take the net title with a total of net 70. Mike's round also included a 2 at the iconic island green 14th. Podium regular Nasaruddin Mohamed was looking very likely to take the net title with a very strong net 68, however playing off a handicap of 12 Nasaruddin's efforts deservedly claimed the gross prize. Playing in the first group of the day Nasaruddin started steadily with an outward 9 holes of 43, inspired at the turn he then posted a gross 37 on the inward 9 for a total of 80 which was not bettered for the remainder of the day.

In the Ladies net division it was the ever present Yvonne Welling who climbed to the top of the leaderboard with a net 75, playing off a handicap of 22 Yvonne recorded gross pars at 3 of Almouj Golf's 4 Par 3 holes to edge out Susan McInnes who scored a net 77.

Emulating the hospitality extended to the Challenge Tour players the week before the competitors were treated to a fantastic post round buffet in the Academy Clubhouse courtesy of The Chedi Muscat before the winners were presented with their prizes.

The top 5 scores were as follows:

Name Gross Course Handicap Net
