BBG Annual Golf Day

Sun, December 17, 2017


Another BBG Annual Golf Day has passed and another three months of preparation madness has finally come to an end for the BBG Operations Team. I would now like to say a massive thank you to everyone for making the BBG Annual Golf Day 2017 a fantastic success! Your feedback has been exceedingly positive which makes all the hard work worthwhile.


This year, we did not have the assistance of On Side Sports who usually support in a number of ways. Therefore, many thanks are due to Charmaine, without whom so much would not have been possible, our Supporting Partners - Lara and Simon from Links Group who sponsored the golf shirts, James from Budget Rent-A-Car [LK1] who provided the golf towels, Stephanie from Emirates for helping us with the golf caps and Darya from MMI who kept everyone hydrated on our BBG Hole 1, then back at the 19th Hole until the early hours.

In no particular order, thank you to our hole and prize sponsors this year for donating such amazing prizes and for creating some unique activations:

·         AIG

·         Emirates

·         HSBC

·         Jumeirah

·         Links

·         Motivate

·         Ahli Bank of Kuwait

·         IP Global

·         Aldar

·         Budget RentACar

·         Al Maha Spa and Resort

·         Winston & Strawn

·         Bond Interiors

·         MMI

Huge thanks to the Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club F+B and Golf Operations team! From start to finish Mike, Joe, Stephen and Romana ensured the planning and execution of the day ran like clockwork and any last-minute requests were dealt with immediately.  Thankfully the weather was on our side this year soat lease we didnt have to deal with that again! Thank you also to Reza from Sixteen10 who managed our silent auction for the second year in a row.

Finally, I would like to thank the rest of our BBG Operations team Hannah, Joanne, Lindsay, Eileen, Rajesh and especially my partner in crime Charmaine! We all thoroughly enjoyed the day also and we hope to see you all at the BBG Annual Golf Day 2018.
