BAHRAIN Golf Club (BGC) beat Awali Golf Club (AGC) 5-1 in their annual match at Awali golf Club.
The annual match is played every year between the very best of AGC and BGC. Awali team captain Hamad Fares Al Qutami had some sleepless nights before play because his original team needed adjustments.
Apparently some players, member of both clubs, changed minds and initial team members became opponents.

Ahmed Al Noaimi and Mohammed Salmeen conceded at the 16th hole. BGC had three points and Awali needed to win both remaining matches to square the scores.
Rashid Al Qutami and Rashid Yacoob gave it all but BGC simply played better. Also on the 16th hole, the winning point was for BGC.
The last match with Salah Al Shaer and Mohammed Ahmed Rashid ended at the same hole to give BGC their fifth point.
