The eagerly anticipated inaugural Emirates Amateur Golf League (EAGL) Corporate Invitational proved to be a hotly contested affair at The Track, Meydan Golf on Saturday as the Wealth of Wellness team emerged victorious with a score of 115 points.

“I’m absolutely delighted for the guys in getting the win out there today,” said Kalani Lal, Chairman of Wealth of Wellness, whose team took home the coveted EAGL trophy.

 

“This really is a unique event that gives players a pro-like experience for the day, so I’d like to send my thanks to Sudesh Aggarwal and the whole team at the EAGL for putting on a fantastic day that not only takes care of the players, but also gives businessman like myself the chance to connect with other like-minded people.”

 

The event – the latest edition of the EAGL series which has taken the UAE amateur golf scene by storm and the first of a planned EAGL Business Series – saw nine eight-person teams representing some of the region’s foremost businesses go head to head over the Peter Harradine designed 9-hole course in a Stableford format with each individual’s score counting towards the team total.

 

Emirates NBD, Bentley Emirates, WoW (Wealth of Wellness), Three Comma – Capital Advisors Limited, Shapoorji Pallonji, Satoshi FX, Atari Chain, GRP Industries and Just Golf were all represented while emerging top of the pile in the individual stakes as Most Valuable Player was Rohit Gupta who carded an impressive 21 points.

 

“I’m thrilled to finish the day as the MVP,” said Gupta, who was representing the Emirates NBD team. “There were some fantastic players competing for this title, so to get the win and help my team finish runner-up overall is a great achievement.”

 

The Emirates Amateur Golf League, which was the brainchild of local businessman Sudesh Aggarwal, has raised the bar for amateur golf in the region by providing a pro-event style experience for its players and sponsors.

 

“I’m very proud that at the end of the day we have concluded a successful event,” said EAGL Chairman Aggarwal.

 

“When you’re planning such an event, you have many challenges which you must overcome to see everything fall into place. The live broadcast has been the biggest challenge because you don’t have very experienced teams to cover golf here, but overall, we have managed to overcome the challenges and I’m very happy to deliver the event.”
