(Duabi, UAE) – The Dubai Duty Free Junior Medal Championship got underway again this week after a long summer break. This series has become very popular since its introduction back in October 2013, and has had a hugely positive start again in 2015. This event welcomed a healthy field of competitors and again this month participants form the Dubai Creek Junior Development programme. With all of the juniors fresh from a long summer break, they were eager to get out and compete in the hope of gaining some all important order-of-merit points as the series draws to a close.
Samuel De Souza climbed a few places on the board after a superb performance and a winning score of 29.5, which saw him lift this month’s title. Toby Bishop claimed the Boy’s Division title in his 1st event of the series with a score of 32.5. Scoring was very tight on the day with all of the juniors performing very well. Finishing just behind Toby was Ayub Sethi, who was home in 33 to take the Boy’s Runner Up spot. Kabir Nanda was amongst the winners again this month and picked up exactly where he left off winning the Best Gross prize after making a solid level par 35. Aashaka Desai also got back to winning ways and claimed the Girl’s Division prize with a superb 2 under par 33. As well as gaining some valuable experience from a competitive atmosphere, there was also a prize available for the best JDP performer. This was won by 8 year old Mousa Shannah who showed great promise in his performance with a score of 28.
Dubai Creek Junior Captain Dhruv Nair was the nearest the pin winner on hole 5, whilst Aarnav Nath claimed a prize for the same on the 8th hole.
Commenting on the latest edition, Dubai Creek’s Golf Experience Manager, Rashid Hamood commented; “A very warm welcome back to you all of you.
