Dubai: In order to develop world class golfers who are looking to compete at the highest level, the UAE is investing in grassroots golf pushing National Junior Programmes.

The Junior and Lady Winter Camp is being run from Dec.17 and will continue till Jan.5 and is part of Dubai Golf’s long-standing commitment to the EGF’s National Junior Development Programme (NJDP) week one focused on the National Under 18 Team and Ladies Squad, week two was a mixed squad training and week three is focusing on the Foundation Squad with kids from 8 to 13 years old.

“This is an important time of year for the UAE National Golf Program. With the start of 2018 upon us, we want to provide a platform that will create a good foundation for the upcoming year.

“Dubai Golf has been a key part of developing our National Program, especially when it comes to the juniors.

“These three weeks of training continues to show Dubai Golf’s commitment to national golf development,” said Khalid Mubarak Al Shamsi - Secretary General of the Emirates Golf Federation.

“The aim is to prepare golfers for the GCC Golf Championships in March, where the UAE will compete against other countries in the region.

“The players are also using this camp as a springboard for the EGF Order of Merit - an eight month long season with different competitive tournaments at 14 golf clubs in the UAE.”

EGF Order of Merit events include the Omega Dubai Creek Men’s Amateur Open (Jan.5 and 6 at Dubai Creek Golf and Yacht Club) and Omega Emirates Amateur Open (Jan.11 and 12 at Emirates Golf Club).
