The annual Braemar golf day was held at Al Badia Golf Course this year and, again, it was a resounding success with 88 guests from the marine and insurance industry attending on a beautiful sunny day in Dubai. The tournament was a 4 ball scramble which seemed to set the tone for the day with stories of good shots, near misses and exceptionally, a hole in one. The eventually winners of the converted Braemar decanter were:
Mandeep Singh International Tanker Management
George Fitchet Hill International
Julian Krickl ART Marine Yachting.
Julien Horn Thomas Millar/TT Club
Longest Drive Julien Horn Thomas Millar/TT Club
Nearest the Pin Phil Bray Svitzer ME
Straightest drive Barry Gething Lloyd's Register
Braemar also ran a raffle in support of the Angel Appeal/Mission to Seafarers raising 12,455 AED (USD 3,400). Thanks to the help of local companies donating some amazing prizes. Dr Paul Burt, the resident Reverend for the Mission to Seafarers, was also the pride of the day in getting a hole in one on the course, for which Braemar presented a bottle of champagne to Paul to remember this rare achievement. Simon Cartwright, partner with Holman Fenwick Willan, was the lucky winner of the main raffle prize of a set of clubs.
A good day was had by all and we look forward to our day in 2015.
