The four, Khurram Hussain (44 points), Kamal Adnani (44) Sanjay Jaitha (43) and Amir Hussain (42), came out on top in the Stableford-format tournament for Gold card members of Skywards, the frequent flyer programme of Emirates and SriLankan Airlines, held at the newly-opened Arabian Ranches desert golf course. They will join the Emirates Group teams playing at the Pro-Am Tournament on 3rd March at the Emirates Golf Club.



Brian LaBelle, Skywards’ Vice President, said: “I am delighted that, for the second year running, Skywards is offering our valued members the opportunity to play golf with the world’s leading professionals.

“This is yet another reason why Skywards continues to be one of the best airline programmes, for benefits both in the air and on the ground!”




European PGA Tour Professional Jarmo Sandelin, who will be playing in this week’s DDC, played a hole with each group throughout the day.



The tournament concluded with prizes for the four winners, in addition to the winners of the Arabian Ranches-sponsored competitions – the Nearest to the Pin prize – Khurram Hussain on the 2nd hole and Lawrence Burke on the 12th hole; and the Longest Drive prize – Dino Varkey on the 5th hole and Gordon Wingate on the 18th hole. The top six winners also won the opportunity to play nine-holes and have lunch with Jarmo Sandelin on 2nd March.
