In the morning four-balls, Brian Soutar (Leven GS) and Conor O'Neil of Pollok were 7 and 6 winners, followed by a 3 and 2 win by Paul Shields (Kirkhill) and Fraser McKenna (Balmore) and a 4 and 3 victory by Scott Crichton (Aberdour) and Daniel Kay (Dunbar).
The rout continued in the afternoon singles with Soutar (5 and 4), Shields (6 and 5) and Kay (7 and 6) all  big-margin winners.
O'Neil had to be content with a one-hole victory despite going four up after only six holes. 
McKenna and Crichton won their singles ties by  6 and 5, and 4 and 3  respecitvely to complete the 9-0 whitewash of the United Arab Emirates.
SGU National Coach, Ian Rae, who has been working hard with the squad on all aspects of their game, said: "There were some great performances throughout the day from the team.
"Conor and Brian were eight-under-par in the four-balls and Scott and Danny were five-under. Most of the guys were also under par. It was a good day and a good exercise for both teams."
