An AWESOME weekend for Golf in Azerbaijan as Dreamland staged the first of our Super Saturday Roll Up’s and the annual IMG Trophy. Meanwhile in Quba the Wyder Cup was played over 36 holes at The Azerbaijan National Golf Club.

2017 Wyder Cup
The battle between Scotland and the Rest of World took shape as Team Captain’s John Bruce and Steven Parkes assembled their 14 player armies. The Scots got off to a convincing start on Day One taking the lead in the early games. Despite a strong performance during the evening activities from the rest of the world team, they were unable to get back into the match on Day Two. Congratulations to Team Scotland on such a convincing win, the only thing bigger than Scotland’s win could be David Kavanagh’s “vets bill” after a stray shot made contact with a Cow on Day One!
IMG Trophy 2017
Back in Baku – a rather windy day on the Links mean’t the IMG Trophy was a fun but closely competed event. With the support of the National Junior team we were able to host a Professional’s challenge on Hole 11. This event proved to be very popular as players the chance to play either their own ball or a Junior’s shot if it was closer to the pin. All players then had a chance for right handed players to use a left handed club for a nearest the pin prize – Richard Mackie was the winner (his left handed shot was closer than his right!).

Winning the 2017 IMG Trophy was the team of John Salins and Captain Bob McEwan with 41pts. With 5 teams tied for second place a count back was needed over the final 9 holes. John Western and Les Tulleth finally claimed second place with 23pts on the back 9, with the family pairing of Steven and Sharon Reid winning through to third place (21pts on the inward 9). Side contest winners were Sean Harrison for Nearest The Pin on Hole 17 and the longest drive winner Euichul Noh on the 3 rd Hole.
