Fun for the young: Get the children involved in clinics.

Watching the fantastic golf will only be half the fun at the inaugural Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open, where plenty of off-course action will be on offer to entertain visitors of all ages.

The four-day, world-class golf tournament will take place from Wednesday, November 2 to Saturday, November 5 at the pristine Saadiyat Beach Golf Club in Abu Dhabi

Whether you’re a keen fan of golf or are searching for activities, the Open will be the perfect day out as it’ll have everything from fitness classes, sports clinics and five-star massage therapy to family fun, hospitality and food and beverage offers.

The venue’s Tournament Village, meanwhile, will serve to educate spectators about its FBMA Youth Programme and how the Fatima Bint Mubarak Ladies Open supports its aim of inspiring Emirati women and girls.

In addition, the Tournament Village will also showcase the capital’s rich history as visitors will learn about the cultural experience of henna art, falcons and traditional hospitality from the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority.

Those who want to become better golfers can watch clinics with some of the world’s best, including LPGA legend and Solheim Cup captain Annika Sorenstam, as well as enjoy player interactions at the Ladies European Tour Communications Hub.

Free golf lessons are also offered in partnership with the Emirates Golf Federation.

Plenty of activities designed especially for kids will be going on too, such as the HSBC Future Falcons and their ‘street golf’ at the Tournament Village. Youngsters can even get integrated into the game through the Starting New At Golf initiative, which uses sticky targets, plastic cups and more for children aged five and older.

Spectators can also test their fitness as the ITU World Triathlon Abu Dhabi offers the watt bike challenge with some of the world’s best triathletes.

Ex-professional golfer turned performance and movement coach Claudine Foong, meanwhile, will perform ELDOA and Myofascial stretching classes and hold a Q&A.

After all that activity, why not relax by taking advantage of express manicures and massage therapy, offered by Marriott Downtown Abu Dhabi’s Saray Spa.
