Top performers

“We are pushing the best out of our players and coaches,” said General Abdullah Alhashmi, Vice-Chairman of the EGF.

“Over the next two weeks, we will understand how our players match up with other golf programs in the region. The Moroccan players have always led the way in being the top performers in Arab golf. By having this opportunity to train and compete against our Moroccan brothers and sisters we will know what is working well or needs improvement. I want to thank the Moroccan Golf Federation which has welcomed the EGF with open arms. We look to continue these training camps with all the Arab Golf Federations,” General Alhashmi added.

Starting on Wednesday 31st August with the 72 hole Eisenhower Trophy, until the last week of November the UAE National Golf Teams will have a busy golfing schedule which includes the following significant events on the golfing calendar: Ladies, Men’s, and Junior Pan Arab Championships in Tunisia, the Women’s and Men’s Asia-Pacific Amateur Championships in Thailand, and the Nomura Cup in the Philippines.
