Golf DXB is proud to announce that we won the Youth Development Initiative Of The Year at the recent Middle East Golf Awards. The hard work of the whole team helped us overcome stiff competition from numerous academies based at world renowned academies. The award was given to Golf DXB on the basis of three main initiatives. Firstly the Tee It Up Scheme which introduced 15,000 children to the game of golf over the last 3 months, the largest golf activation in the history of Middle Eastern Golf. Secondly the formation of the UAE Interschool Golf League also played a key part in the award and the strength of the program, allowing children of all abilities from school across the Emirates to represent their schools. Lastly through our work with UAE Nationals through Golf In Dubai at the Sheikh Rashid School and the EGF’s NJDP powered by Golf DXB we have been able to introduce a total of 400 UAE national children to the game, which has resulted in 40-50 children developing an affinity for the game.
Looking ahead to 2016 Golf DXB will be continuing to strengthen links with existing schools and also build links with new school as well as our first ever Junior Golf Open Day to be hosted at tHe Track, Meydan Golf in early January. Additionally International Golf will be launching its second brand Golf SHJ based out of Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club. Away from junior golf we are also looking forward to the launch of our Ladies Program.
We would like to thank our key partners The Track, Meydan Golf, Emirates Golf Federation and Golf In Dubai for their support in helping us achieve so much in the last 7 months since Golf DXB was established and we are very excited about the plans for the future. Wishing everyone a fantastic festive period and a Happy New Year!
