Doha: Seashore Group has entered a partnership agreement with Education City Golf Club (ECGC) to help develop the community of Qatar to engage in healthy golf activity.

Two key initiatives of the partnership will develop golf programs for the youth and lady golfers while focusing on the family unity and connection through sport and activity. Participation in golf is associated with a wide range of benefits—physical, emotional, social and cognitive—that can last well into adulthood; golf can be played for life. Developing an appreciation for the game at a young age is important and the aim is to build an early commitment with the youths of Qatar to play golf.

Seashore will also introduce over 100 new women to golf in the private coaching area at Education City Golf Club. The aim is to encourage healthy participation in sport and develop a community of women golfers in Qatar. Other initiatives also will include a family open day at the club to keep the community spirit high through golf activities.

Speaking on behalf of Seashore Group Salam AL-Mohannadi, Chairman stated:

“Part of our CSR strategy and commitment to Qatar is to develop women and youth with sport . Starting with golf we feel it will add benefit to the community with the low impact outdoor sport that can be played into adulthood.

Speaking on behalf of Education City Golf Club, the General Manager Michael Braidwood stated: “Our commitment to developing golf amongst the youth and women has been a priority of ours since our infancy. The golf programs we have developed are designed to encourage new golfers and help them quickly progress to playing on a golf course. We are grateful to Seashore for their support and commitment in helping develop the sport of golf here in Qatar.”
