Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club were delighted to host the final and patrons day of its eagerly anticipated Golf Society League on Saturday 27th of June. The final of the popular event supported by BMW and World Wide Golf was scheduled for 11th of April and thankfully the finalists waited patiently so we could conclude the event.
The final saw the golf Societies of White Rose and GTI battle it out in the final and it couldn’t have been closer. White Rose Golf Society made up of SGSC Captain Rory Thomson, Ryan Taylor and low handicappers Ben Mulvaney and Namir Al Naimi eventually came out on top and saw off the challenge of GTI. Both societies won a match each on the day so a sudden death play-off would determine the winners. A very solid par 4 from Namir Al Naimi saw White Rose crowned champions, white rose captain Rory Thomson was delighted to get the win after a sore loss in last years final.
GTI society made up of Andrew Thom, Eamonn Al-Rifai, Martin Rodden and Ahmed Musley played some great golf and were unlucky to lose out on the day.
The third/fourth place play off saw GEMS society take on The Angry Birdies, GEMS proved to much for The Angry Birdies winning both matches and taking third place in their first year in the event.
As always both matches were played in great spirit, as the GSL concludes for another season SGSC congratulates all participating Societies on another successful year.
The final always sees the return of some familiar faces with the Patrons Day. SGSC invites all the captains and sponsors back to play in the event. Playing from the white and yellow tees in an individual stableford format there was some great scores on the day considering the current temperature. Taking top spot was Mujahid Siddiqui with a sensational score of 39 stableford points. SGSC member Mohan GC was very unlucky not to go home with the top prize with a score of 38. Third place went to one of our sponsors Jordan Smith from World Wide Golf with a score of 35 points.
