RIGID INDUSTRIES Golf Society League returns for round two at SGSC
Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club hosted the second round of the ever popular Rigid Industries Golf Society League. Fifteen societies from all over the UAE have joined us for this season of GSL all trying to stake their claim to be Rigid Industries Golf Society League Champions. The fifteen societies have been split into three leagues with top two in each league and the best two societies in third place moving into the knock out stages. On Saturday 12th of December twelve societies descended on SGSC trying to get their league campaign off to a fast start.
In the Rigid Industries league we saw defending champions White Rose Golf Society play their first match after a rest week. White Rose showed why they were victorious last year as they continued this fine form to win both matches against Filipino Golfers in the Middle East(FIGME). GTI Golf Society who were runners up last year have had a slow start to this seasons campaign. Team International Golf Society proved to be too strong for GTI and won both matches on the day adding six points to their total and to sit nicely at the top of their league.

Sharjah Night Riders comfortably won both matches against SGSC society and they sit nicely at the top of the SGSC league and are another new society to keep an eye on this season.
