UAE U15s and U18s will soon participate in a four-week training regime ahead of the 2017 GCC Golf Championship.

Hosted in Saudi Arabia, the tournament will take place from April 11-16.

Working alongside the Jumeirah Golf Estates, the European Tour Performance Institute and Emirates Golf Federation have devised this programme to help players mentally prepare and perform at their best in anticipation of the championship.

While official championship roster announcements are pending, nine young golfers will take part in this preparatory programme.

The Director of Instruction at the Jumeirah Golf Estates-European Tour Performance Institute, Mark Gregson-Walters said he is “excited to be part of the 18 & under and the 15 and under teams final preparation before the GCC Golf Championship.”

He continued: “We have witnessed the teams’ hard work and enthusiasm when it comes to practice over the past months.

“We have a vast amount of experience at the European Tour Performance Institute, which we can share with the team to refine their games and prepare for the upcoming event in Saudi Arabia.”
