Education City Golf Club has been developing a robust golf development program over the past few years. The program now sees more than 100 children actively playing and learning golf. In 2020, the golf club introduced a junior program called the ‘Play to Par’ which was designed to focus on providing children with a ‘playing’ mindset by setting targets and goals for progression. As the child improves and develops their golf skills, the targets get stretched to progressive attainable levels by introducing course playing skills.
With the support of Commercial Bank, the time has come for children to take their game from the practice range to the golf course with the introduction of a tournament on the Par 3 Course. This Pro Am tournament is seen as a key component in developing and encouraging children to play golf on the course with local PGA Professionals.
The Commercial Bank Par 3 Pro AM was created to support the development of children in Qatar and was played on June 25th, 2021.
Socially distanced golf games with 4 participants in each group took part in a friendly competition to end the school calendar year.
Since the inception of Education City Golf Club, we have been committed to growing the game of golf within Qatar. Working with the values of Qatar Foundation, we have looked at a holistic approach to developing golf with the program. Our approach has now developed further by introducing tournament golf for children and with the support from Commercial Bank, the vision for creating a future golf star is on the horizon!
