The team at golf DXB are continuing to grow the game in the UAE, especially gaining interest with local children and getting them playing golf on a weekly basis.
Over the past couple of weeks we have delivered taster sessions in three different local schools, introducing the game to over 1000 primary age children, many of whom experienced golf for the first time. This was a massive success generating interest for the sport and offering free golf lessons following on from this at Meydan Golf Course.
Monday was also the very first UAE National golf tournament held on the short golf course at Meydan Golf Course. 26 of our regular golfers took part in their first golf tournament. This was great turn out for the first event and we hope to grow this in the future with tournaments being held every Monday evening at 5.30pm.
The winners from this event we as follows:
- 1st place- Mohammed Ahmed
- 2nd place- Fahad Alawadhi
- 3rd place- Rashed Alawadi
- 1st Place- Hassam
We would like to congratulate the winners from this event and hope to see all children down here next Monday to try and improve their score.
It has been great to see the development of the children in our UAE program from having never played golf before to now understanding the different skills required for golf and being able to execute this on the golf course in tournament conditions.
We hope to see new faces enrolling to our free UAE golf sessions in the near future and enjoying this great game.
We would also like to thank the Emirates Golf federation for all the support they have given Golf DXB to enable us deliver our program to the UAE nationals at Meydan Golf Course, go into local schools to deliver taster sessions and enable us to run tournaments for UAE Nationals.
