Mercedes-Benz Member Guest Event

28 March 2013Back

MB-MG-winners -optimisedThursday March 28th saw the first in a new series of events at Almouj Golf. As Corporate Partners Mercedes-Benz have been key supporters of Almouj Golf since its inception in December 2011 with the annual Matchplay Championships being run under their sponsorship. In a continued effort to increase participation in competitive and social golf Almouj Golf have now introduced the Mercedes-Benz Member Guest Series.

The inaugural event was run in a Better Ball Stableford Format with Almouj Golf members inviting a guest to join them for 18 holes on the Championship Course. Courtesy of Mercedes-Benz's support the guests were invited to participate without having to pay the usual green fee. 

As you would expect from the format where only the best score from the pair of players counted on each hole the majority of the 70 strong field beat the level par mark of 36 points. 

The third place prize was hotly contested with 5 pairs making their way to 42 points, it was thanks to a fantastic back 9 hole score of 23 points that Almouj Golf member Yvonne Welling and her guest National Team Player Ali Hameed took the honours each winning a Mercedes-Benz golfing gift set. Narrowly avoiding the crowd of pairs on 42 points that included both the Almouj Golf Men's and Ladies Captains pairs were Almouj Golf member Mohammed Fauzi Adnan and OGC Committee Member Al Arqam Al Busaidi who amassed 43 points to win a fantastic pair of Mercedes-Benz hampers. 

Taking the top spot on the day and receiving a pair of wonderful Mercedes-Benz wrist watches were new Almouj Golf member Lee Matthews and his guest Mike Helfrick. Despite a slow start Lee and Mike rallied well to score 24 outward points and consolidated their efforts on the back 9 holes with 21 points to give themselves a very impressive 45 points. 

Thanks to the support of Mercedes-Benz the Member Guest Series will continue with the next event already scheduled for the 26th April. The format for the follow up event will be a three player scramble with each Almouj Golf member being entitled to invite up to two handicap holding guests to join them.
