SGS arrived at the club with a few nervous players as we were on home turf for Abu Dhabi Golf Society and a very challenging course to take on, were we confident? 100% not, however after a quick warm-up, team photos and motivational team talk by the chairman we headed out to see where our fate we lay and try and bring up the trophy.
