Resident Hannah Alan Shoots 70 for Best Gross
(Ras al Khaimah, UAE) – On Saturday, March 18th, 2023, the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) hosted the March EGF Monthly Medal at Al Hamra Golf Club supported by eGolf Megastore.
With a total of 36 points, playing perfectly his game, Mohamed Darwish wins the overall Stableford Category, followed by Yaser Al Marzooqi with 34 points. Dividing the categories, Rashed Al Emadi wins with 30 points the Division A, and Division B was led by Shawqi Sajwani with 34 points.
Al Hamra Golf Club became an official DP World Tour venue when the Tour visited the beautiful Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah in the United Arab Emirates for the first time in 2022, hosting the inaugural Ras Al Khaimah Championship. This eighteen-hole golf course, designed by Peter Harradine, opened its doors in the year 2007 and meanders around four inter-connected open water lagoons merging seamlessly with the water of the Arabian Gulf. Originally planned to be built on the salt flats bordering the water edge, some five million cubic meters of sand combined with expert shaping have come together to create gentle elevation changes as the terrain moves around the lagoons rising and falling from plus one to plus eight meters. Al Hamra Golf Club’s Par 72 Championship course lends itself perfectly to all levels of golfers, providing the fledgling novice or the most accomplished of players with an enjoyable and interesting golfing challenge.
The elite division competed only in the gross category, and at distances that were considerably adjusted as the EGF wants to encourage the elite player to play in conditions similar to those of the international competitions. 7 ladies competed for the best in the Elite category and Hannah Alan won the Elite Division Ladies shooting 70, followed by Jamie Camero with a total gross score of 74.
In Elite Division – Men, from the 4 players, three shot scores of 83, but after a count back Mohammed Skaik came out as the winner.
With a total of 41 points dr. Rabab Al Naj wins the Ladies Stableford Category and junior Rashed Al Halfeiti won his division with 35 points.
In the Senior Division, for those who are 50 years of age or older, Amir Barki collected 36 points to win the division.
The event also had two “On Course Challenges” up for grabs. Taking home the Longest Drive Award for Men was Rashid Al Hafeiti. Winning the Nearest to the Pin Award in the men’s category was Sultan Al Qwais.
The ladies had a separate competition for the “On course challenges” and the winner of the Longest Drive is Hannah Alan. Sara Ali won Nearest to the Pin.
