After the camp the EGF caught up with Golf DXB coaches and they had this to say about working with the kids. “It was a lot of fun working with these children. We got to experience their first time playing golf. It’s always pleasurable as coaches to see children happy and playing a game we care about so much.”

“We wanted the children to get a good understanding for what golf really is. We implemented a lot of physical activity to make sure the children worked on skills such as balance, awareness, speed, and coordination. All of these aspect will produce a good golf swing”, Golf DXB added.

As apart of the EGF the National Junior Development Program has a goal of identifying and developing young UAE National Golfers while building good character through the structure of the rules from the game of golf.

With working with Golf DXB the EGF is able to make the game of golf fun and interactive while trying to produce a future golfer. The long-term goal for these children will be to start taking lessons at their local golf club and then competing for a spot on the UAE National Golf Team.
