The Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) recently hosted over 30 physical education teachers from Emirates Schools Establishment and the sporting service provider ESM, to introduce The R&A Unleash Your Drive in Schools Program supported by GolfWay the Golf Foundation at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

EGF Director of Instruction and National Team Coach, Cameron van Rooyen alongside Nick Horrock, Director of Strategic Partnership, Golf Development Advisor, and Consultant with The R&A and GolfWay put on a three-hour seminar running activities and training physical education teachers on how to implement a first touch golf program into schools.

The objective would be for the interested schools to participate in the program, and run the activities during the physical education classes, this allows the Emirates PGA teaching professionals to link with the schools and to foster a talent identification pathway.

“We must continue to develop the sport of golf at all levels. We look forward to working with our partners, the UAE schools, and golf clubs to ensure the development and success of grassroots golf” said Akram Skaik the Director General of the EGF.
