Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club welcomed back the societies for their final league matches before the knock out stages start. Twelve societies from all over the UAE descended on SGSC trying to secure their spot in the next round. The twelve societies have been split into two leagues with top four in each league moving into the knock out stages.
In the BMW league we saw top of the league The Angry Birdies play last years champions the Filipino Golfers in the Middle in what was set to be a great match. The Angry Birdies maintained their form and won one match and halved another adding four points to their total and move into the quarter finals as one of the strong favorites. FIGME finished third in the league and progressed to the next round. White Rose played KEGS 1 both societies won a match each and moved into the quarter finals with White Rose finishing second and KEGS 1 taken the final spot in fourth place. Construction Executive Golf Society faced Gulf Rock and couldn’t be separated halving both matches but unfortunately for them don’t make the next stage of the event.
WORLDWIDE GOLF LEAGUE
The first match in the Worldwide Golf League saw our new society to the GSL GEMS International School Staff tussle with KEGS 2. The Societies won a match each adding three points to their league total this was enough for GEMS to progress in second place in the league but KEGS 2 are no longer involved. Happy Hookers and The International golf society were tied on points in the league and remained that way after the days play both winning a match each. Happy Hookers secured third spot on count back as The International were happy to progress in fourth. Sports to business couldn’t compete with GTI Golf Society who claimed the full six points and moved into the quarter finals by winning the Worldwide Golf League.
