RIYADH: ARAB NEWS
Another new format fun golf tournament takes place just before sunset on Friday at the Dirab Golf & Country Club.
Instead of the early morning tee-off players will have a 4:30 p.m. shotgun start for the Ramadan 9 holes Golf Tournament & Iftar Dinner.
This event sponsored by Dirab Golf & Country Club is one for families to enjoy with 9 holes putting competition for ladies and kids on cards.
In addition to prizes for the winners there will be raffle draw for all participants, according to DGCC Golf Manager Bouchaib El Jadiani.
The tournament is a 9-hole Bingo Bango Bongo format competition open for all individual, corporate members and their guests with handicap limit of 28 for men and 36 for ladies.
Bingo Bango Bongo is a points-based game that can be played by any number of golfers, from two up. Under this format, three types of achievements are rewarded with a point: 1. The first player in a group to get his ball on the green gets a point (bingo) 2. The player in the group whose ball is closest to the pin once all balls are on the green gets a point (bango) 3.And the player in the group who is first to hole out gets a point (bongo).
Add up the points at the end of the game, and high points wins.
Bingo Bango Bongo gives weaker players a chance to earn points because what matters is being first at something. For example, all members of the group tee off on a par-4. The player who hit the worst drive (farthest from the hole) plays first, and so has the first shot at winning the bingo point.
