UAE Nationals Assemble for the 2019 Presidents Cup Sponsored By HSBC
February 6th, 2019
(Abu Dhabi, UAE) – United Arab Emirates (UAE) Nationals from across the country will be gathering this weekend for the 7th edition of the UAE Presidents Cup sponsored by HSBC. Hosted by the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) at Yas Links Abu Dhabi this year’s “national championship” will have over 110 players competing across four different divisions. This will be the largest UAE Presidents Cup since the event started in 2013.
EGF is thrilled to work alongside with HSBC for the seventh year. HSBC is a globally recognized organization in banking with an event management sector that has a purpose to be where the growth is. HSBC is certainly on the right track with impressive golf events like the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship presented by EGA and worldwide influence on junior golf programs.
EGF Secretary General, Khalid Mubarak Al Shamsi had this to say about the 2019 UAE Presidents Cup. “It is always great to work with HSBC and their knowledgeable events management staff. With the continued support from HSBC, we are seeing this event grow year after year. Over 20 junior golfers from the National Junior Development Program will compete in Par 3 Championship, which is a direct reflection of the growth of the sport within the national golf community. Building a strong national golf community is a goal for both the EGF and HSBC, this event is proof that both are reaching that goal”.
The EGF has added a new division for 2019. Starting this year the event will offer a Senior Division that will allow golfers over the age of 50 years of age to compete in their own division.
The EGF encourages any and all spectators to visit Yas Link Abu Dhabi this weekend and support this fantastic event. You can see the results and follow the event updates on the EGF website and social media pages.
