Education City Golf Club (ECGC) recently held their first ever members golf tournament over the club’s 18 – hole championship course. While still in its soft opening phase, the golf course has an active golf club membership playing on a regular basis since the start of 2019. 

The first members stableford was played over the pristine 18 hole championship course that covers 7200 yards. Prizes and catering were put on and sponsored by ECGC, ensuring that their membership were treated to a special day – the results were exceptional with over 50% of golfers scoring over 30 points.

Hanley Hilton playing off an 11 handicap scored a consistent 35 points and came in 3rd place. In second place was Anup Biswas with a score of 37 points. Taking the honours of winning the first ever members stableford was Jesse Payne, scoring an impressive 75 gross with 41 stableford points.

Payne said he played great golf during the tournament, even landing a tie with his all-time best score.

I really enjoy playing the golf course at Education City as it makes you think your way around each hole with different challenges. It is an absolutely beautiful course and is in wonderful condition. Perhaps the best part of the tournament was meeting other members who share my passion with the game and looking forward to playing other events with them in the near future.’

ECGC maintains a holistic approach to growing the game in Qatar to continue engaging established golfers and encourage new players to participate in the game.

Director of Golf Rhys Beecher said they want to encourage people to get active.

We aim to encourage active participation through our competitions. All of the feedback has been so positive so far, and we are pleased to announce that we are open for golfers in Qatar.’
