The January ECCO Medal, held on Saturday 14th January 2017, saw 55 players participate in the tournament on a rather windy day at The Address Montgomerie Dubai. Scoring proved to be pretty tough due to the strong wind.
Well done to Malcom Gray, who won the Men’s Gross Division with 80 gross, beating the consistent Joon Eun, who shot 82 gross. Young Cho once again took victory in the Ladies Gross Division with 83 gross, followed by Kerry Fitzpatrick in second beating Vikki Jones in a count back with a 92 gross.
