The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal April 2013
With 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
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.
The top 10 scores were as follows;
The next event in the Almouj Golf calendar is the Magnolia Medal
on the afternoon of the 12 th April followed by the inaugural Black
Tee Challenge over the weekend of the 18th and 19th.
