April -Medal -WinnersWith the weather slowly edging towards the inevitable summer temperatures the Championship Course at Almouj Golf once again presented itself in fantastic order for the April edition of The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal.

As well as the Gross, Net and Ladies titles on offer the players would also be competing for a coveted spot in the season ending 'Tournament of Champions' where the winners of each division from each Monthly Medal throughout the season are invited to do battle one last time for the title of Champion of Champions. With only one further opportunity to book their spot remaining after the April Medal the players who were yet to add their names to the list were obviously keen to do so.

Setting the early pace in more than one way in the Ladies Division was Yvonne Welling, first off in the field and keen to get around quickly due to an afternoon appointment at Muscat Hills Yvonne played well posting a gross 98, net 76. Welling's round could have been better had it not been for two troublesome triples at the 9 th and 18th holes but ultimately her score was good enough to see off her closest rival in the Ladies Division by a margin of 4 strokes.

The gross title was well contested with the course giving away little to the lower handicappers, two players finished tied for the top spot on gross 81 but it was 2013 Men's Club Champion Tenzin Tsarong who had the better back 9 holes to take his second Gross title of the season and push October Gross winner Kevin D'Amours into second place. By virtue of this Kevin actually took the runner up net title with a fine net 70 playing off a handicap of 11.

Joining the winner's enclosure for the first time this season in the net division was John Prescott who's gross 84 off a handicap of 17 gave him a fantastic net total of 67, the second best winning net score of the season.

Despite the challenging conditions there were four two's posted on the day, trophy recipients John Prescott and Kevin D'Amours both recorded one each as did Gerard Fleming and 2013 Ladies Club Champion Sarah Morris.
