The second running of the UAE Interschool Golf League was held at The Track, Meydan Golf on Thursday 26th November. The tournament helps to give juniors an avenue to compete at, which can help with increased levels of enjoyment and can help motivation as they look to beat their previous score. It also helps us to create a stronger link between all the schools and get them closer to golf by giving them this platform to compete and represent themselves on. The Interschool Golf League will also help to instil the correct manner to conduct them, such as correct etiquettes, and understanding of the rules.
Our second event took place at Meydan golf course and was played over 9 holes from 3 varying tee lengths. The event was extremely well supported with over 80 juniors participating and over 25 schools being represented.
Prizes on the day were awarded to the top 3 individuals from each tee and the top 3 schools.
