Aspiring golfers can learn to play the game without even paying a single dirham as part of Abu Dhabi City Golf Club’s (ADCGC) free coaching week.

Since starting on Friday, it has already been a big hit among juniors and with it running until Saturday, September 22, there is still time to take advantage of the fantastic free coaching on offer.

ADCGC have held the coaching week initiative for the past five years and are confident 2018 will be another success.

“Here at Abu Dhabi City Golf Academy we always look for new ways to attract more golfers and especially junior golfers to the game,” said David Taylor, head professional at Abu Dhabi City Golf Academy.

“For the last five years we have been running it and it attracts more than 250 new golfers every year. Of course with every new junior attending there is the potential to introduce a whole new family to golf.”

Classes are held between 17:00 and 18:00 on weekdays and 09:00 to 10:00 on weekends. Open for ages 4 to 16, youths can learn different aspects of the game.

“During the one-hour session, our team of PGA golf professionals will introduce the basic movements, rules and etiquette of the game to all the new golfers in age specific groups,” added Taylor. “The juniors will enjoy three golf related activities that will offer a snapshot of what we offer in our Junior School. The first activity will be a fun warm up, encouraging team work.

“The second will introduce the juniors to putting on a specially designed crazy golf course. The final activity will get the juniors learning to swing and hit the ball long, high and straight. On top of that, there will also be a buggy ride.

With a few days to go until the free coaching ends, Taylor insists there are plenty of positives on why parents should enroll their children.

“Very simply, this is a great opportunity for all juniors to try golf at Abu Dhabi’s favourite junior golf academy and all for completely free,” he added.

“Here at Abu Dhabi City Golf Club we strive to provide an accessible, welcoming and fun learning environment for juniors of all ages and their families and friends. We hope to see a week of smiling faces, laughter and happy golfers of all ages, playing this life-long game with family and friends.”
