November 16, 2011

Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, one of the world's most exciting new golf courses has launched its 2011/2012 junior golf program. Aimed at getting more young people involved in the sport, each fun-filled junior program will run for 8-weeks, welcoming children between the ages of four and fifteen. Designed by 8-time major winner Gary Player, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club continues to highlight its long-term commitment to developing grass roots golf in the Middle East.

Lauded by the world's media as it continues on its path towards becoming one of golf's most elite destinations, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club and its Golf Academy will play a major role in inspiring a future generation of golfers in Abu Dhabi. The Junior Golf Program has been designed around the ethos of fun, with games and challenges providing variety in the specifically designed itinerary. Additionally, those who complete the training course will be rewarded with a certificate, hat and t-shirt.

"We're thoroughly looking forward to watching the progression of those involved in the Junior Golf Program, as for many it will be their first golfing experience. However for more advanced players it will be an opportunity to work with some of the finest professionals in the region to improve on their existing skill-set," commented Ken Kosak, Group General Manager, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club, Abu Dhabi Golf Club. "This is an exciting platform to advance golf at the grass roots level. We hope that it plays a significant role in creating the next generation of golfers in the Middle East."

With unrivalled panoramic ocean views and expansive bunkering, the Troon-managed championship course has received numerous awards over the past 12 months, including "Best Golf Course" in the Middle East and Africa, at the 2010 CNBC Property Awards. With a host of new developments coming to the Island in the near future, in addition to the existing Golf Academy and hawksbill Restaurant, Saadiyat Beach Golf Club is a future magnet for visitors and residents. While a host of planned exclusive 5-star resorts will create one of the world's most premium and stylish destinations.
