Two Golf Di­gest read­ers trav­elled to Abu Dhabi in Novem­ber on a R50 000 golf­ing ex­pe­ri­ence cour­tesy of Golf in Abu Dhabi, ac­com­pa­nied by editor Stu­art McLean. Leonard Flaum from Knysna won the Oc­to­ber is­sue com­pe­ti­tion, and John Lloyd of Plet­ten­berg Bay trav­elled with him on Eti­had Air­ways to Abu Dhabi for five days. They stayed at the 5-star Ritz Carl­ton Abu Dhabi, Grand Canal, and played three rounds of golf at Yas Links, Saadiyat Beach and Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Among the at­trac­tions they vis­ited dur­ing the stay were Fer­rari World, Yas Wa­ter World, and the im­pres­sive Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, one of the world’s top land­marks ac­cord­ing to Trip Ad­vi­sor. Ground trans­port was with Hala Abu Dhabi.

“John and I, to­gether with other in­ter­na­tional prize win­ners, were treated like roy­alty by Golf in Abu Dhabi,” said Flaum. “On ar­rival we re­ceived a Titleist holdall and a box of 12 Pro V1s. At Saadiyat Beach we were treated to a golf clinic by Mat­teo Manassero, and af­ter the round there was a bar­be­cue. I would like to thank Golf Di­gest for mak­ing this won­der­ful ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble.”
