Dermot Davitt doubled his delight by claiming the Dubai Duty Free Golf World Cup for a second time over the weekend at Emirates Golf Club and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.

Davitt, who first won the title back in 2013, claimed the bragging rights over nearly 100 competitors over the two days of the 29th edition of the tournament, with a total of 79 points.

The stableford event organised by Dubai Duty Free offered prizes up in each of the Men’s, Ladies’ and Senior’s Divisions.    

“Thanks to our team at Dubai Duty Free and to Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club and the Emirates Golf Club for the successful running of the 29th Golf World Cup,” said Colm McLoughlin, Executive Vice Chairman & CEO of Dubai Duty Free. “Congratulations to Dermot and to all our friends in the duty free industry for participating in this tournament and I hope to see you all next year as we celebrate our 30th anniversary.”

The local winners in the Men’s and Ladies Divisions were Ghurbax Singh and Smurthy Thomas. Steve Flanagan took the overall visitors prize in the Men’s division and Charmaine Bruwer in the Ladies. The Senior winners were Marius Fouche (50+), Brian King (65+) and Dennis Marnane (70+).
