On February 18-19, the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) will host the 11th edition of the United Arab Emirates Presidents Cup sponsored by HSBC at Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Over 100 golfers of all ages, genders, and skill levels will compete throughout the weekend to determine the nation’s top golfers.

In addition to HSBC’s sponsorship, the EGF has teamed up with Abu Dhabi Sports Council and eGolf Megastore to provide the players with a greater experience.

The EGF is thrilled to work alongside HSBC for the 11th year. HSBC’s purpose is to open up a world of opportunity for the clients and communities it serves, and the engagement it delivers with impressive golf events like the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship and its worldwide influence on junior golf programs.

Chief Executive Officer for the UAE of HSBC Bank Middle East, Abdulfattah Sharaf, had this to say about the upcoming 2023 UAE Presidents Cup. “HSBC is proud to be supporting the UAE Presidents Cup at the Abu Dhabi Golf Club. Opening up a world of opportunity is HSBC’s purpose and this is a tournament which does exactly that for talented Emirati golfers when they take to the field at the heart of the nation’s capital.”

2023 has already been an exciting year for UAE golf. With four consecutive professional events under the European Tour Group and DP World Tour, all eyes have been on the UAE.

Maintaining the vision of golf development, the EGF has added a new Future Falcons Skills Challenge to this year’s activities. The Future Falcons Skills Challenge will allow beginning level children and families to participate in a fun competition during the UAE Presidents Cup. This skills competition will consist of chipping, putting, and driving competitions that will take place on Sunday, February 19th, during the final round of play.

All spectators are encouraged to watch the final round on Sunday at Abu Dhabi Golf Club and support this fantastic championship.
