11th Junior Open Golf Championship Supported by Ajman Academy.
At Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club
On Thursday the 12th of December Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club hosted its 11th Junior Open Golf Championship Supported by Ajman Academy. Some of the best Junior Golfers from all across the UAE battled it out to be this years SGSC Junior Open Champion. With both boys and girls and ages varying from eight to seventeen putting their skills to the test on a course that is in exceptional condition at Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club.
It was the girls that stole the show at this years event with Abu Dhabi Golf Clubs young starlet Chantal El Chaib blowing away the field with a sensational gross four under par sixty eight. Chantal only dropped one shot in her superb round and picked up five birdies in the process. There was the prospect of a play off on the cards as two of the early starters posted one under par seventy one but it wasn’t to be low enough. Taking the runners up spot representing Jumeriah Golf estates was Vigo Sorenson whose was one of the early starters posting seventy one but had to settle for a very credible second place. Kate Bibby from The Els Club took third spot she was first out on the day and she too posted a brilliant score of one under par seventy one only losing out on runners up spot via countback.
In the Net Division young Ties Wolters playing out of Jumeriah Golf estates won with a staggering net score of ten under par sixty two. Ties was delighted to be crowned this years SGSC Net Champion with his sensational score. Abu Dhabi Golf Clubs rising star Lara El Chaib was runner up in the Net Division with great score of sixty seven. Girl net Champion was SGSCs own Jamie Camero who won the hotly contested girls division with a net score of seventy.
The event was played in a fun but highly competitive spirit on what was a great day at Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club.
