A CAPACITY field took to the Royal Golf Club's challenging Montgomerie championship course this week for the opening event of the Crestlink Monday Madness Night Golf Series.
The 'Rainbow Challenge' format, in which players alternate between three sets of tees, helped create more scoring chances than usual and it was the pairing of Depriest Daniels and Tony Bridgens that took most advantage as they fired a spectacular 25 Stableford points to claim first place.
In perfect playing conditions, this impressive tally was enough to secure by one-point win over runners-up Sang Hyo Nam and Yeon Gul Kim and the third-placed pairing of Mohammed Al Sayed and Jennifer Lednicky, with the latter duos separated only on the countback.
In the on-course side contests, Peter Thompson was closest to the pin on the 12th hole, while Karen Black took the honours on the challenging 16th.
The winners received their prizes from Crestlink's Chris Duffy during a special presentation reception in the club member's lounge.
Speaking afterwards, Royal Golf Club golf operations and events manager John Wilson said; "It was amazing to see the standard of scoring tonight.
"I think the format really gives the higher handicap players a good chance as the holes play shorter. This is the same for the lower handicap players but the temptation to still hit driver can get them into trouble. Many thanks to Crestlink clothing and apparel for coming on board for this very popular series."
The popular Monday Madness Night Golf Series tees off at the Royal Golf Club's Montgomorie championship course every week with a shotgun start of 6.30pm and is open to non-members at a cost of BD20 per round.
