The Grand Final of the Golf Sixes League, Abu Dhabi took place under the lights at Yas Acres Golf Club last weekend, with novice juniors from golf clubs across Abu Dhabi joined by those from the Emirates Golf Federation for a fun evening of competition.

Playing across just six short holes, seven teams of six, paired up to compete in a two ball Texas Scramble stroke play format with the best two scores of the teams’ three pairs counting towards their overall score.

After an evening of fun and good sportsmanship, the team from Abu Dhabi City Golf Club emerged as the winners of round four.

"Golf Sixes has been so fun! Playing golf with my friends and as a team was cool. I really want to play again next time!" said Kristoff Davidson a ten-year-old golfer from Abu Dhabi City Golf Club.

"Kristoff has loved participating in Golf Sixes. The way the programme is designed, with the kids playing in teams, has really helped get them excited to play golf and made the whole experience less intimidating. Across the season you could see the kids’ golf improve and now my son is wanting to play more and more, " said Davidson’s Dad, Andrew Davidson.

Golf Sixes League is a development initiative, supported by The R&A and the Emirates Golf Federation, which introduces young people to golf in a fun and inclusive environment, along with an added competitive element.
