Qatar British Business Forum (QBBF) held its first-ever Golf Day at the Doha Golf Club recently, thanks to its PRO Sponsor, Gulf Contracting Co. Around 30 members participated in the tournament.
In addition to the tournament, there was also a golf clinic for learners and amateur players, where Doha Golf Club coach Jeff Mathews, British PGA, guided around 10 participants through the basics of the sport.
Gulf Contracting Company GCC and its specialist divisions – Al Manjara Joinery and Interspace and Spacemaker – along with QBBF, provided the golfers with golf balls, caps and medals.
QBBF Vice-Chairwoman Carly-Jane Figgis greeted the participants and thanked the PRO Sponsor before introducing Gulf Contracting’s General Manager Grahame McCaig.
First place went to Danny Langfield, a guest of Doha British School. Second place was awarded to Andrew Salmon from Al Manjara Joinery, while the third place went to Rory McGettigan from Dan Bolton Creative Management Agency. Raksha Nair from Marsh was awarded the Most Promising Newcomer following the golf clinic session.
McCaig said that the tournament has been a very successful event and they are already looking forward to next year with even more players.
More QBBF activities
This year, QBBF has been adding new activities into its event calendar, on top of its customary business lunches and evening networking gatherings. This year’s events included the Clay Pigeon Shooting held at the Olympic standard range at Lusail Shooting Club in February, followed by a high-tea gathering on 8 March at the National Museum of Qatar to celebrate International Women’s Day and now the Golf Tournament.
With over 300 members, QBBF is by far the biggest membership among the business councils and business groups in Doha, the list of which is published yearly in the QBBF directory, to be issued later this month.
