The 2014 edition of the annual Creek Cup event took place this past weekend at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. It is one of the most eagerly anticipated club events of the year and it has proven to be a continued success. The event was supported by Seawings and winners of the four competitions on the day, received vouchers for the Seawings tour of Dubai.
The Creek Cup was started and donated in 2007 by Colm McLoughlin, Dubai Creek Golf Club’s first appointed captain. The event was always played as an East vs. West event but is now a Captain vs. Vice Captain team match. Captains chose their teams from the list of entries and then pair up these players to compete in a 4-Ball Betterball Match Play format.
Over 60 players entered to represent their Captain or Vice-Captain in this thrilling event. With the pairings selected and the draw done, the players headed out for a day of friendly yet serious competition over the ever stunning Dubai Creek course.
In the history of the event the Captain’s team are yet to taste victory, this is something that Captains, Tejan Fadlu-Deen and Paula Savage would be looking to turn around against their vice-captain rivals Joseph Ghossoub and Harini White. After some great matches in some very tough and windy conditions, it seemed that history had repeated itself again this year as the Vice Captains team cruised to a comfortable 10 1/2 – 4 1/2 victory over the captains team.
After being presented the trophy, Dubai Creek Vice-Captain Joseph Ghossoub commented, “Thank you to all of my team for your efforts today which ensured our victory. I would like to thank Stephen and all of his team along with Seawings for their support in making this another great event this year. It’s always a pleasure to participate in this event and even more special this year being a captain and I look forward to winning it again for us all next year”.
After conducting the prize presentation, Dubai Creek’s Golf & Membership Services Manager Stephen Hubner commented, “It’s great to see such a good turnout for this event once again. This event always promises to be great fun, and I had the pleasure of experiencing this myself this year along with my colleague Rashid Hamood. I would like to thank our playing partners Kevin Savage & Michael McGinley for a great game and also say a big congratulation to Joseph and his team on a very commanding victory”.
