Under the auspices of Dubai Sports Council it was a real pleasure to sponsor the CEO Masters held at one of my favourite golf courses – The Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club. What started with Rory Mcilroy kindly signing the $1 bill after training up at the Els Club…..
Led to the formation of the one off auction item – ‘$TORY RORY’ that celebrated his time at the Dubai Desert Classic and The Race to Dubai in this unique piece of art.
Dollarsandart were allocated the testing 2nd tee – always pleased to walk off with a 5 (bogie) on that one as there’s a real ‘risk & reward’ shot over water.
It was right that a rare print of ‘Golfer$ Ca$h’ was also given away as one of the prizes for the evening presentation before the auction for $tory Rory started….
Despite it only reaching the reserve price in an unopposed bid it was an absolute pleasure handing over the cheque to Gulf4Good founder, Brian Wilkie M.B.E at the Track, Meydan Hotel after a sociable 9 holes of golf a couple of months later…..
The winner of the $TORY RORY has had a real bargain as he has since been world number 1 winning both the British Open and then in the U.S a week later!
