The Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal

14 February 2013Back

Valentine's Day saw the second Chedi Muscat Monthly Medal of the year and another opportunity for the Almouj Golf Members to claim a trophy and book their place in the season ending Tournament of Champions.

The golf course, as always, was in immaculate condition helped by the preparations for the upcoming GCC Championships.

Despite the absence of several regular competitors the field assembled at first light to tackle the challenging links layout. Keith Harvey made the best of the conditions to record a gross 85 playing off a course handicap of 15 resulting in a net 70. Under normal circumstances Keith would have perhaps been hoping to fend off the other players to take the net title however on this occasion his score was good enough to give him the Best Gross title for the day.

With the Best Gross decided the duo of Chuck Sargent and 2013 Club Captain William Welsh were left to fight it out for the net both recording net 78, a countback was required to separate the two with Chuck coming out on top to claim his second Best Net of the season so far.

Making it a hat trick of titles 12 handicap Sarah Morris won the Best Ladies Net with a net 87, Sarah's journey to her third title of the year was a straight forward one with little in the way of competition.

The overall scores were as follows;

No. Name Gross Course Handicap Net  
1 Keith Harvey 85 15 70 best gross
2 Chuck Sargent 103 25 78 best net on countback
3 William Welsh 96 18 78 runner up net
4 Ian Watters 92 13 79  
5 Gerard Fleming 112 30 82  
6 Soren Bostrup 109 26 83  
7 Robert Daniel 93 8 85  
8 Geetsh Tamse 103 17 86  
9 Hugo Fonseca 109 22 87  
10 Sarah Morris 99 12 87 best ladies net
