The first Ladies Medal sponsored by Park Hyatt took place at Emirates Golf Club with 48 ladies competing on the Majlis Course.

The Silver Division A (Hcap 0 to 14) Medal was won by 2022 EGC vice-Captain Fiona Berry. Fiona carded two birdies on the day, the first coming on hole two followed by the second on hole 16. Fiona kept her composure over the closing stretch to shoot one under net on her final three holes to finish with a solid score of 72 net.

In the Silver Division A runner spot was taken by Glory Xavier. Glory played her way to a 75 around the Majlis Course with three net birdies on the day. Yulia Golubeva finished the day in third place after a very respectable round of 76 with a strong finish with a net birdie on 18.

Net bogey

The Silver Division A (Hcap 15 to 23) saw Atsumi Aoto come out on top with a net 74. Despite finding trouble on the last two holes with a net bogey and double bogey on holes 17 and 18, Atsumi had still done enough to secure the Division B prize. Deirdre Kemp was runner up, while Fari Sayeed came third.

The Bronze Division (Hcap 24 to 36) was won by Alison Cowley. Alison carded the best net score of the day with a net 71. Alison battled her way to a strong finish of two net birdies and a net eagle on the final four holes to clinch this month’s Bronze Division Medal. Michele Carlsson finished runner up with a net 73.

Jayshree Gupta won the Overall Gross prize for the event. Despite a tricky start of two sixes recorded on the first three holes, Jayshree responded by playing the next three par 3’s in 2 under par gross to win the prize with a gross 80.
