Shark Stableford Match Report
This competition gave our members an
opportunity to experience the course through the eyes of the golf
course designer and former world number 1 Greg Norman.
The benefit of having such a well-designed golf course is its
flexibility when it comes to altering the level of difficult on a
day-to-day basis. This week the course was set up the way
Greg Norman would have visualised it when designing the
Championship Golf Course. The tee markers were positioned to
change the tack from the tee boxes, encouraging some different
course management strategies and shot making to be adopted in order
to make a good score.
The relatively small field went out to compete in an individual
stableford format. The scores suggested that the 'Shark'
course certainly made the course somewhat more difficult than
usual. Nevertheless with a solid back nine of 18 points,
Steve Morris claimed 3rd spot with 33 points.
Using his shots to his advantage, Moez Madhavji posted two
consistent 9's to post 34 points, which was good enough for the
runners up spot. However the only golfer to play to his
handicap today with two equally goods 9 holes of 18 points, was
Iain Watters. Congratulations to Iain on winning the Shark
Stableford, Iain's first solo win here at Almouj Golf.
In a side competition Louise Daly and Kevin D'Amours both won 2
sleeves of golf balls for scoring a 2 on their round.
The overall scores were as follows;
The next competition will be held on Friday 8th
February. Playing in teams of three this event will be a
Stableford format where all 3 scores count on the Par 3 holes, the
best 2 scores will count on the Par 4s and the best score will
count on Par 5s. Play will commence with an 8am shotgun allowing
you to be back in time for the Friday brunch if you wish.
