EGF Equip National Foundation Squad
November 29th, 2016
(Dubai, UAE) – On November 27, 2016 the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) equipped 11 young Nationals with Golphin for Kids golf clubs, the latest award-winning junior golf clubs to hit the market. The National Foundation Squad was established less than 6 months ago and the EGF has seen a great deal of growth from the players not only in interest but fundamental skills as well.
Golphin for Kids’ slogan is Inspiring Next Golf’s Generation, which falls in place with the National Junior Development Program that the EGF has implanted over the past 2 years. While working with the European Tour, KHDA, UAE Golf Clubs, and other key stakeholders the EGF has been able to introduce the game of golf to thousands of Emeriti’s in the United Arab Emirates.
The 11 kids on the National Foundation Squad have gone through a year-and-a-half long process that started in Physical Education classes within the Dubai school system. Now these kids (and over 50 others) are receiving group and private lesson 3 to 4 times a week powered by Golf DXB at The Track, Meydan.
“The process of creating interest and young golfers will take time but we have seen a vast improvement of acceptance from the young generation and a tremendous amount of support from local and international partners. By providing these kids with the right equipment we hope to give the kids confidence and enjoyment that will make the game more desirable. By making it on the National Foundation Squad we want to show a sense of accomplishment and a responsible to continue training” said Khalid Mubarak Al Shamsi, EGF Secretary General.
Golphin for Kids is based out of Scotland, the home of golf, and particularly designs golf clubs for beginners between the ages of 3 to 12. The revolutionary club head is designed to get the ball off the ground making the game more fun and enjoyable. The clubs are also lighter creating a faster swing a making it easier for beginner golfers. To find more information about Golphin for Kids email firstname.lastname@example.org.
