BANDENIA Golf Society League supported by MyGolf Dubai gets underway at SGSC

Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club welcomed back some familiar faces and some new societies for the first round of the Bandenia Golf Society League supported by MyGolf Dubai. A total of ten societies from all over the UAE have joined us for this season of GSL all trying to stake their claim to be Bandenia Golf Society League Champions. The ten societies have been split into three leagues with top four in each league and moving into the knock out stages. On Saturday 25th of February societies descended on SGSC trying to get their league campaign off to a fast start.


First up in the Bandenia league was SGSC social Society face KEGS in what was set to be a great match. SGSCs local knowledge proved to be too much for KEGS as the SGSC social produced some great golf on the day to win both matches and six points being added to their league total. The second match up in the league was also set to be a hotly contested affair with the Nepalese Golf Society face off against GTI. The Nepalese produced some of the best golf on the day out of all the societies and unfortunately for GTI they were on the receiving end of it. The Nepalese GS added six points to their league total. Filipino Golfers in the Middle East are the fifth society in this league they had a rest week and will be ready to battle in the next round of fixtures.


The first match in the MyGolf Dubai League saw familiar faces return the GSL in the form of Sports to Business and they played against the Golf Dragons. The matchup was a very close affair as both societies played brilliantly and the end result was a tie both societies winning a match each and securing a point each for their league efforts. The other match saw our supporters MyGolf Dubai face off against past winners of the GSL team International. Experience came out on top as team International won both matches on the day resulting in a strong start to their campaign. The Dubai Divots make up the remainder of this league and will join us next month for their first round.

All three leagues are set up brilliantly and we can not wait to see how the leagues progress. As well as the matches, competitors had a chance to win day prizes for best betterball stableford score.
