Following on from a successful season, the federation’s present goal is to introduce more Emirati juniors to the game through structured programmes at UAE golf clubs.

One of the youngest participants who benefitted most from the programme is Maryam Al Marzouqi who went on to win one of the Par 3 Events held throughout the season.

Maryam’s efforts paid off when Sharjah Golf and Shooting Club offered her a free Academy membership, whereby she will now train under the watchful eyes of professionals headed by Ben Derbyshire.

Aimed at creating some young stars for the future, the club sponsors 18 selected junior golfers, who would be given free Academy memberships that ensure regular practice and play to hone their golfing skills.

Membership is offered for the duration of a session — eight weeks — and sustained based on performance analysis.

Maryam is excited and looks forward to taking full advantage of the privilege to improve her golf. EGF is confident that this achievement will inspire other national juniors to work hard on their game.
