Dubai, UAE (PRWEB) November 18, 2005
Thirteen teams, who all stayed at the Grand Hyatt Dubai, took part in the week-long golf vacation, which included a practice round on The Majlis course at Emirates Golf Club, followed by three tournament rounds, two at Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and one at Al Badia Golf Resort. Playing alongside some of the UK’s footballing greats including, Francis Lee, Andy Gray, Trevor Cherry, World Cup winner Alan Ball and ‘Celebrity Love Island’ star Lee Sharpe, the UK teams experienced a week to remember!
Pat Jennings, one of the all time great goalkeepers and an icon for both Tottenham and Arsenal, played some exceptional golf over the three competition rounds to win the title. UEFA Cup winner and past winner of the Footballer’s Golf Classic events in Spain and Dubai, Russell Osman, came second, with Tony Dorigo, who played for Aston Villa, Chelsea and Leeds, in third place.
1st Pat Jennings, Handicap 8, 102 points
2nd Russell Osman, Handicap 5, 98 points
3rd Tony Dorigo, Handicap 5, 95 points
1st Brian Maxwell, Geno Botto & Karen Botto: 260 points
2nd Eric Bain, Steve Robson & Jason Brant: 250 points
3rd Alan Robinson, John Griffin & Martin Archer: 249 points
“The event was once again a huge success with most people confirming their interest in next year’s event before boarding the flight home” said Mancini. "Dubai is the finest possible leisure destination for western Europeans and so I was delighted to bring the event to Dubai and receive such positive feedback. I look forward to bringing an even bigger Footballers Golf Classic back to Dubai again in November 2006 and as far as I’m concerned, I’d like to see the event here for as many years as we’re allowed to do it.”
