“Our relationships with the northern golf clubs and the Ministry of Education has been a focus for the National Junior Development Program over the past six months as the EGF feels that our National database is stronger in these areas. Over next four weeks, these golf clubs will be introducing the game of golf to over 400 students. In return we will expect to get a handful of these students to start taking up golf as their everyday sport,” Al Shamsi added.

The EGF has seen an increase in the number of golfers joining the National Junior Development Program and with a larger number of golfers to choose from the more competitive the UAE National Golf Team will be.

John Frost, Lead Physical Education Trainer for the Ministry of Education has this to say about the initiative. “It’s wonderful to see local children being introduced to the game of golf who may not necessarily have had the provision or opportunity to do so before. This project in conjunction with the EGF has already developed their skill set and confidence in the game. For some, this could be their first step on a pathway to excellence, and for others, we hope that it will instill a passion for lifelong learning in physical activity.”
