Nancy Dolan turned in an impressive performance to win the Emirates Golf Federation's Handicap Scheme Monthly Medal at Al Ain Equestrian, Shooting & Golf Club.

A relative newcomer to the game, Dolan carded 41 points off her 40 handicap, beating Emma Tully on a countback in the ladies' division to emerge overall winner of the competition.

The event was organised by the Emirates Golf Federation to provide an opportunity to amateur golfers who are not members of a club to improve their handicaps.

Some fine scores were recorded in men's divisions as well. Playing off a six-handicap, David Forbes shot a 76 to win the gross title, and Gary Rigby emerged victorious in Division A, beating Bryan Banner and Leander de Wit on a countback after all three signed off with a net 71.

The competition was equally intense in Division B that followed the individual Stableford format with full-handicap allowance.

Mark Silverton, who was playing off a 19-handicap, tallied 43 points to beat Alastair MacGregor and Tony Fargher by one point for the title.

Both MacGregor and Fargher shot an identical 42 points, but the former was declared runner-up on a countback.
