Many a golfing challenge has begun from a simple discussion with friends, and the 72-hole challenge was no different. After many conversations, the extreme challenge of 72 holes in 24 hours was decided upon and four of Troon’s finest facilities in the UAE would play host to the golfers who took up the task.
Haytham Nasr & Omar Moukachar, both Members at Montgomerie Golf Club Dubai were the men behind this fantastic challenge and with 10 others joining, they were set for 3 groups of 4 to compete over the 72 holes, all to raise funds and awareness for Men’s Mental Health, partnering with the Al Jalila Foundation.
Troon facilities were ready to support with complimentary tee times for the groups and Dubai Hills Golf Club, Montgomerie Golf Club Dubai, Arabian Ranches Golf Club, and The Track Meydan Golf were chosen for the challenge.
Congratulation to Haytham Nasr, Damien Murray, Sami Zouehid, Oliver Lalani, Omar Moukachar, Bobby Grudziecki, Lee Boden, Manoj Khimji Sjoerd Wijstma, Bard Poulsson, Stein Arnesen & Sonny Menghani who all successfully completed 72 holes in 24 hours finishing just ahead of schedule on Montgomerie Golf Club Dubai’s challenging 18th hole before 10 am. Truly a brilliant achievement!
To date, over AED 6,500 has been raised for the Al Jalila Foundation.
