Last weekend saw the Genesis Medal take place at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. A full field of golfers faced cooler temperatures and very strong winds which proved a challenge to all players.
Winning this month’s Genesis Medal was Humayun Shahryar after his excellent score of 69 net (-2). This was an exceptional round of golf from Shahryar who finished with a gross 75!
In the Men’s Division A the scoring was tight with the winners being decided on a card play-off. The winner of this division was Ishwar Jodha after his 70 net (-1). The runner up in this Vice Club Captain Saeed Malik after his round of 72 net (+1) was enough to win on a better back nine. In Division B the winner was Mike Estafanous after his score of 71 (par) beat Richard Hughes by one stroke. The Best Gross prize was won by Miki Mirza after his score of 76 beat Ashok Sindhu on a better back nine. In the Ladies Division the winner was Shiba Wahid who finished with a score of 71 net.
After the prize presentation, Dubai Creek’s Golf Services Manager, Michael Major commented; “Congratulations to all the winners, it was great to see so many of you playing even in these tough conditions! A huge thank you to Genesis as always for sponsoring this year’s medal.”
