(Madinaty, Cairo, Egypt) – The inaugural Madinaty Golf Club Amateur Open, which took place in the middle of last month in Egypt, has been hailed as a success by tournament organisers. This prestigious new event for golfers in Cairo will now become an annual fixture on the club’s tournament schedule following its warm reception from members and guests.

In the years ahead the tournament will grow in size and stature not just from an organizational perspective but also from a social aspect too, in order to support and boost the wider club community.

Day one of the tournament saw golfers arriving at the course bright and early for registration, breakfast and distribution of Madinaty Golf Club logoed goody bags. There was also a kids’ activation on the Golf Terrace at lunchtime for the families of those playing to enjoy their time too. As players came off the course, they were also able to join their families and enjoy brunch, along with live entertainment.

Once the final golfers returned at 2:30pm, lunch was served with further entertainment on offer, whilst the tournament organisers tallied up the final scores.
