(Rabat, Morocco) – On August 13– 27, 2022 the Emirates Golf Federation (EGF) and the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation (FRMG) hosted a two-week training camp which was capped off with a series of friendly matches at the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam Golf Club in Rabat, Morocco.
23 UAE and Moroccan ladies and juniors trained using the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam Golf Club’s, world-class short game and driving range facilities. The national squads had the opportunity to practice their wedge game, bunker play, and putting.
In addition to the training, the FRMG organized three days of friendly matches where teams were formed based on the players’ handicaps. The EGF and FRMG mixed teams competed in a series of different nine-hole formats.
“The training camp and friendly matches were a major success. Allowing the players to train together will give them the chance to create friendships that will last for a lifetime. I would like to thank the Royal Moroccan Golf Federation and the Royal Golf Dar Es Salam Golf Club for the hospitality and support that we have received. We look forward to continuing to build on this relationship and hosting many more training camps in the future”, said General Abdallah Alhashmi, Vice Chairman of the Emirates Golf Federation.
Furthermore, three Men’s players Ahmad Skaik (ranked the 63rd on the World Amateur Golf Rankings), Abdalla Al Musharrekh, and Rashid Al Emadi traveled to Ifrane, Morocco to join the Moroccan Men’s Team and the Rutgers University Golf Program for seven days of training. The Men’s players were training in for the 2022 World Amateur Team Championships (Eisenhower Trophy) in France from August 31st – September 3rd.
