Gedney Hill Golf Club Duo make the Top 3 in League to Dubai

Last October David Lord and Rob Newns from Gedney Hill Golf Club qualified to play in the Grand Finals of the League to Dubai golf competition.

The pair travelled out to Dubai for the finals on Thursday, March 30 and played, in total, three rounds of golf on three different courses.

Their scores were: Round 1 - Arabian Ranches Course 38pts. Round 2 - Jumeirah Fire Course 35 pts. Round 3 - Jumeirah Earth Course 33 pts.

Around 750 pairs originally entered so they are both delighted that they achieved third place in the overall competition.

David said: “What a fabulous, fabulous experience.”

An added bonus was that David was in the winning team of a 9 hole floodlit challenge played at Dubai Creek Golf Club.

They had qualified by playing in the Southern Regional Final held at Tudor Park Marriott Hotel and Country Club, Maidstone, Kent. The competition was extremely close with only four points separating the top 15 pairs.
