Meet the Captain
Born in Dundee, Scotland, in 1973, Douglas caught the golfing bug at a young age and learned to play the game with his late grandfather at Blair Atholl, a small town in Perthshire. A graduate in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Abertay, and after a brief spell in Aberdeen at the beginning of his oilfield career, Douglas moved to Dubai in 1995 whereupon he joined the UGA Golf Society with a handicap of 16. 22 years later, and off a handicap of 5, Douglas is one of the original members of the Arabian Ranches Golf Club and has been a member since 2005. Douglas is honored to have been voted in as the Club Captain for 2016-2017 and is looking forward to his Captaincy alongside Lady Captain Nicola Breeze.
