Golf is a sport that helps an individual grow at a personal level while also building camaraderie in the community. We hope that the tournament enables a relationship that is longstanding and growth-oriented for all participants."
The clubhouse at Jumeirah Golf Estates will also host a special photography exhibition during the tournament. The exhibition will celebrate the incredible progress made by Dubai in the last three decades and the contribution made by Indian expats to this growth.
The tournament is being managed by GolfLAN, an innovative golf consultancy committed to making golf accessible to a much wider population in the UAE.
