So far this season Golf DXB has been working closely with Golf in DUBAi to promote golf amongst UAE Nationals at The Sheikh Rashid School For Boys. This program has seen 500 children between the ages of 6-16 being exposed to the game through in school sessions. These classes involved the use of dynamic team based games and short golf equipment to allow children to learn basic technique and the principles of the game of golf and scoring.
We now have and us now having 30 UAE nationals coming for weekly golf sessions and these children have a vested interest in the game, many of whom also play golf outside of classes.
As our program progresses into term 3 we will now be looking to take the children out onto the Meydan short golf course. These 40 yard holes and oversized cups act as a fantastic stepping stone to the golf course.
Looking ahead to next year we hope to get the SRSB boys involved in the UAE Interschool Golf League, representing themselves and their schools in the tiered ability events which will have five rounds over the course of the 2016-2017 season.
We would like to thank Golf in DUBAi for their continued support in making the program possible as well as the PE staff and students of SRSB with their enthusiasm and efforts this season.
