21st Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup
(30 November 2013)

 

The 21st edition of the renowned Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup took place at The Emirates Faldo and Dubai Creek golf courses on Wednesday and Thursday respectively. Over 100 specially invited guests from all over the world battled it out over 36 holes with the goal of having their name engraved on the famous trophy.

After two wonderful days of golf and social engagements it was the Irish journalist Mr Dermott Davitt who was crowned champion with a superb total of 78 stableford points over the two rounds. On winning his title Mr Davitt commented; “It has been a wonderful couple of days and I would like to say a huge thank you to Dubai Duty Free for looking after us so well once again. This event really is the highlight of the year for everyone in our industry. I have been coming to Dubai to play in the DDF Golf World Cup for fifteen years and I am extremely proud to have won.”

Commenting on the success of the 21st hosting of the tournament, Dubai Duty Free Executive Vice Chairman Colm McLoughlin said: "This tournament has gone from strength to strength since we began it in 1993. Many of the players this week have been coming here for all 20 years, many others for 12 or 13. And most have said they’ll be back next year. Thanks to our wonderful team at Dubai Duty Free, who I believe are the best in the world, and to the Dubai Creek Golf Club and the Emirates Golf Club for making this year’s event so enjoyable.”

Despite the fantastic score by Davitt, he only won by just one point over Dubai Creek member Michael McGinley who scored 77 points over the two rounds which included 42 points at The Faldo course on the first day. Given that McGinley is a scratch handicapper this was quite an achievement, his gross 66 including two eagles. The runner-up in the Gents category was Antoine Breen with 75 points and the 2nd runner-up prize went to Nick Midwood who had 71 points. The prize for best international male went to Dan Kongsted who also scored an excellent total of 71 points.

In the ladies international category it was Nancy Miller who collected first prize with a fantastic 67 points winning by four strokes over Jaclyn Wampler on 63 points. In the local division Dubai Creek member Naema Maya successfully defended her title scoring a total of 61 points. The overall second runner up trophy went to Emirates Golf Club member Jacqui Barry who managed 56 points over the two days.

The senior’s category was won by another Creek member, Bayar Khan who used the home course advantage to shoot 40 points in the second round for a total of 75 and finish 6 points ahead of past winner Steve Flanagan. In the super senior division it was the popular Sandy McPherson who was crowned champion with 59 stableford points.

After the prize giving, Dubai Creek’s Head Golf Professional, Stephen Hubner commented; “On behalf of Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club I would like to thank Mr Colm McLoughlin and Mr George Horan from Dubai Duty Free for once again bringing this wonderful event to Dubai Creek. It is a real pleasure for us to host such a friendly group of people, you are like a family! We very much hope that we will be able to host the event once again next year.”
