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 continuous support of Commercial Bank, Education City Golf Club organized the Juniors 2nd 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 2nd Commercial Bank Par 3 Pro AM was created to support the development of children in Qatar and was played on 25th September 2021.

Socially distanced golf games with 4 participants in each group took part in a friendly competition. A warm but great afternoon on the golf course, with some fantastic golf skills from all the promising golf talents at the Education City Golf Club.

The Commercial Bank Play to Par Program has been progressing beyond our expectations. We now have a vibrant Junior golf membership and program with children as young as five years of age, actively playing on the golf course. The key has been implementing shorter tee markers which makes the game more enjoyable for beginners and juniors to compete against each other. Quoted Michael Braidwood – General Manager
