The Luckiest Ball on Earth Qualifier At Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club September 4th 2015

Every amateurs dream in golf is to play with the professionals. On Friday 4th September our members chased that dream once again and the competition was one worthy of a tour event. 30 plus members competed for the chance to gain that much sought after spot to go to the Grand Final which will take place on the Fire course at Jumeirah Golf Estates on Sunday 11th October.

Rafaella Maresca

Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club had a battle to remember with 7 players in the mix after 9 holes and the final winner had just one point to spare. This is the fine margins that professional golfers go through every week but there had to be only one lucky player. The lady on top at the end of the day was Rafaella Maresca, good friends with last year’s winner Ennore Paoli, with 32 points. Not many golfers could win with three holes of zero points but this did not stop Rafaella. The Italian golfer getting two shots on the 17th claimed her last three points to claim the spot.

We wish Rafaella Maresca all the best in the Grand Final and hopeful she can chase the dream one more time to grab the place to play with the professionals in November.
