GMS was proud to sponsor the Ian Neal Memorial Golf Tournament, held at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club and in memory of Ian Neal, father of Benjamin Neal, our HSE training & compliance coordinator, and his younger brother Sam.
Ian Neal, who died earlier this year, had served in the Royal Navy for 22 years before moving to Abu Dhabi where he lived with his family for 18 years. Mr Neal worked for the UAE military and ADNOC. He was passionate about golf and was treasurer for the Emirates Gentlemen’s Golf Society, Captain of England in the Slyder Cup (England vs the rest of the world), and a member of the St George’s Golf Society.
The event, which raised more than 6000 AED for Cystic Fibrosis Trust, was organised by Nigel Cann and involved 47 golfers in a Texas scramble format with prizes for first and second place, nearest the pin, longest drive and nearest the line.
