Emirates Golf Club recently hosted the annual Captains Matchplay Challenge which saw 36 pairings compete against each other over the Majlis Course, representing either Marivi Arias Lady Captains Team or Campbell Steedman’s Captains Team.
There was a lot of good golf played on the day with plenty of competitive action but as always, most importantly, lots of smiles on the faces of the members.
It was the Lady Captains team who was victorious by 4 points (LCT 11 – 7 CT). Both Captains paid tribute to the support of all Members throughout their captaincies and the true honor they both felt at having had the opportunity to represent Emirates Golf Club as Club Captains for 2022/2023.
