Wacky Wednesdays 8th August

11 August 2012Back

After playing the back 9 holes in last week's Wacky Wednesdays the small but enthusiastic field returned to the familiar front 9 this week.

With the winning score exceeding 20 points for the last 3 weeks it was 22 handicapper Geetesh Tamse who continued the run to a 4th week with a fine 20 points. Playing from the white tees Tamse's round looked to falter at the par 5 3rd hole with an 8 for no points but he rallied well and the highlight of the round came at the challenging 6th hole where a gross par with 2 strokes netted him 4 points.

The overall standings were as follows;

No Name Points
1 Geetesh Tamse 20
2 Dale Morris 17
3 Sarah Morris 15
4 Kevin Wright 15
5 Yvonne Welling 12
6 John Peterson NR

Wacky Wednesday's are open to all Handicap holding Members and Guests, the entry fee is a sleeve of Titleist golf balls. With the Almouj Golf Ramadan Two-for-One promotion on weekday green fees the next few Wednesdays are the ideal way to bring along two guests to participate in this competitive but social event.

Several of the competitors also followed their 9 holes on the Championship Course with a quick 9 on the newly opened Academy Par 3 Course, which being floodlit allows play to continue long after dark. Look out for a Wacky Wednesdays Combo soon!
