The first edition of the R Hotel Midweek Stableford was played on the 6th June 2017, there was a healthy field of golfers turned out to take the first ever title and claim first prize. With an impressive score of 21 Stableford next year’s vice-captain Sanjoy Das blew the field away, taking the victory by two clear points. Sanjoy’s round of nine holes looked very controlled with three net birdies and six pars, a great evening’s work of hitting fairways and greens.
Taking second place in the event was a regular to midweek competition at SGSC Imran Akhtar. His game didn’t have quite the consistency of Sanjoy’s, after the first 7 holes Imran was set to be the favorite for taking the title as he’d posted 18 Stableford points and looked to be in control following a net eagle on the 7th hole. However on the 8th & 9th holes Imran was only able to add the single additional point to his total and had to settle for second place in the event.
The gross price for the event was collected by club personality Deepak Neupane, his round was very consistent with just a few dropped shots over the closing holes preventing him from shooting level par. In the end Deepak had to settle for a two over Par, 16 points total just enough to take home the prize.
