UAE National Junior Foundation Squad – Powered by Golf DXB

Posted By

Golf DXB offering FREE golf for UAE national children, no prior golfing experience required.

Golf DXB has been working hard with the Emirates Golf Foundation to build the National Junior Development Program at the Meydan Golf Course – an initiative aiming to build a competitive UAE national golf team. We currently work with a group of 12 players selected from golfers attending Golf DXB’s FREE after-school sessions for UAE nationals, with the main aim of improving their game and get them playing at the highest possible level. These talented players have been provided with clubs, courtesy of the EGF, and receive weekly coaching sessions from the Golf DXB elite performance coaches; Jordan Patmore and Aaron Williams.

The UAE national squad will also soon join forces with the Golf DXB elite squad to add a competitive angle to their training and give them the opportunity to play with some of the best expat golfers. Another key aspect to the national program is the chance to compete in our International Golf Junior Championship. This an international ‘tour-style’ junior event held at The Address Montgomerie Dubai and gives players the chance to flex new found skills under the pressure of real competition and see if all that hard work has paid off.

Here is a look at our interview with Golf DXB owner Tom Green and young UAE golfer Abdullah to find out more about the Program and who Abdullah would have in his four ball…

9 year old Abdullah has been attending the free EGF sessions regularly and managed to qualify for the International Golf Junior Championship Final held at the end of 2016. He did both himself and the UAE proud by competing in his first ever golf tournament and gave an excellent performance to finish 7th in the final after scoring 38 on his best round. The competition was a great success and we’re excited to see how Abdullah takes this experience through to his next tournament in the upcoming season.
