/ 20 August 2012
The Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club held the 2012 Dubai Creek Summer Open on Friday The event was as popular as ever with a field of more than 70 golfers battling it out for the title.
Hot and humid summer weather provided a tough test for the entire field. Overcoming the conditions and easing his way round the course was Sharjah Golf Club’s professional, Trevor Marshall as he fired a superb 1-under par gross 70 to take top spot.
After being presented his trophy Marshall commented; “Firstly I would like to say thank you to my playing partners for a great game today. Also a big thanks to Stephen and the staff here at the Creek, the course is excellent and it’s always a pleasure to play. I’m looking forward to playing here again in a few weeks for the first event of the MENA Tour”.
Ryan Riley finished just two shots behind Marshall to take runner up spot with a very respectable 1-over par gross 72.
The men’s net division was very closely contested and came down to a count-back between Dubai Creek Member Khalil Jamal and EGF member Simon Mmutle. Both players shot a solid 1-under par net 70 but in the end it was Mmutle who was awarded the top spot on a count-back over the last 6 holes.
Dubai Creek member Joy Lirio continued her dominant run to take top spoils in the ladies division with a superb net 69, while Harini White carded a net 76 to take the runner-up spot.
The junior division was very much a family affair between brothers Dhruv and Rishi Nair. Rishi, the younger of the two stormed to 1st place with a fantastic net 66 while Dhruv finished with a level par net 71 to finish runner up. Dubai Creek’s David Gowans showed arrow like accuracy on the par 3 8th hole with a fantastic shot to take nearest the pin prize while Maurice Murphy followed suit to take nearest the pin on the 16th.
